PINKTOBER® is ​the Buderim Private Hospital Cindy Mackenzie Breast Cancer Program’s campaign held annually in October to raise awareness of breast cancer.

PINKUp and fundraise in style by hosting pink themed events, such as cupcake sales, decorating your workplace or by simply donating. Sign up today to get your PINKUp pack by clicking the button below and join us to support ​local families affected by breast cancer.

This program relies on funds from generous donors to provide support services to local breast cancer patients and families. By participating in our PINKUP for PINKTOBER® campaign, you will be raising much-needed funds for ​Sunshine Coast families who struggle in many aspects of their life due to breast cancer.

There are many ways you can show your support of the program and recognise people you know that have been affected by breast cancer – whether it’s wearing pink accessories, hosting a fundraising BBQ with friends, turning your workplace into a pink palace or by donating the program!
