We are a clinician-led organisation where patient education and support services are initiated by the very people who treat breast cancer patients every day.
Your donation will help us enhance breast cancer treatment and care, and increase survival rates.
We began in 2009 with a vision to provide high quality care while conducting research that would deliver the most advanced treatments and save lives.
BCRC-WA conducts research into breast cancer treatment and care that underpins the treatment we provide to our patients.
The Something Pink fundraiser is an annual event in Kalgoorlie started by a Katrina Tedge and Gai Robinson (dec) to raise funds for BCRC-WA.
Katrina Tedge and Gai Robinson are the co-founders of ‘Something Pink for Breast Cancer’ a fundraiser of humble beginnings uniting the Kalgoorlie community to raise funds for Breast Cancer Research Centre-WA.
It is though the work of Gai Robinson who lost her battle to Metastatic Breast Cancer in 2019, Katrina Tedge a breast cancer survivor, and a dedicated committee, that the fundraiser continues to grow from strength to strength.
Katrina and Gai’s fundraising efforts began when they distributed pink fundraising tins around the Kalgoorlie area. In 2017, they decided to organise a charity night which soon became known as ‘Something Pink’. The night was a great success, so successful in fact it was decided to hold the event again in 2018 which raised an overwhelming $90,000, almost double the previous year’s efforts.
In 2019, Something Pink with the help of the Kalgoorlie Community raised an astounding $106,533 for BCRC-WA. This fundraiser welcomed a donated Suzuki Swift from Golden City and a variety of auction items.
Something Pink’s wide appeal and success will no doubt continue and become a Kalgoorlie tradition.
BCRC-WA is incredibly appreciative of the huge effort put into Something Pink by Katrina and Gai.
