AKD goes PINK for October

Friday 1 Nov 2019

To honour family, friends and colleagues this Breast Cancer Awareness month, AKD Softwoods has turned pink this October to raise money and awareness. Cancer doesn’t discriminate; it affects everyone, either personally, or our family, colleagues and loved ones; one in two Australians will have been diagnosed with a form of cancer by the time they turn 85.

Breast cancer is the most-commonly diagnosed cancer in females; in 2019 alone an estimated 19,535 new cases will be diagnosed. Breast cancer is not just a women’s disease, with the number of men diagnosed on the rise. The McGrath Foundation, founded by legendary Australian cricketer Glenn McGrath, funds breast care nurses who support individuals and their families experiencing the disease which affects so many.

AKD has partnered with the McGrath Foundation this Breast Cancer Awareness month by jumping on board its Pink Up Your Town initiative. To raise funds for the McGrath Foundation, AKD employees are wearing pink shirts and shoelaces across all their Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland sites, with the proceeds used to fund breast care nurses for wherever they’re needed most.

And, when AKD shared this initiative with their customers, they couldn’t wait to support and well. AKD is humbled by the level of employee and customer support for this important cause that affects so many of our family, friends and colleagues.
