McGrath Foundation’s Corporate Partners’ Night
On the 25th of May 2017, our Marketing Assistant, Paula had the pleasure of attending the McGrath Foundation’s Corporate Partners’ evening on behalf of Pacific Hoists. The McGrath Foundation is a breast cancer support and education charity in Australia that Pacific Hoists’ brand – Challenger – has been supporting since the brand’s conception. The organisation uses the money raised to place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia and to raise awareness of breast health. The McGrath Foundation’s Corporate Partners’ evening was a night of celebration, as Glenn and Tracy presented their achievements to date, marketing activities for the rest of the calendar year, and plans of expanding the breast care nurse facilities to bridge the national breast care nurse shortage. You can see the breast care nurse gap in the diagram below:
The foundation has raised over $12 million and has a network of 117 McGrath Breast Care nurses since it started in 2002. Did you know…
Paula was stoked to have met and taken a photo with former Australian cricketer and the co-founder of the McGrath Foundation, Glenn McGrath. She was so starstruck and awkward about the meeting that all she could say to him was ‘you’re very tall…’.
