Thank you for visiting our fundraising page.

The Skin Vet, Veterinary Specialists Auckland and The Strand Veterinarian are teaming up this year and going 'Pink for the day' to support kiwi women by raising money for The Breast Cancer Foundation New Zealand.

Working within the veterinary industry means that animal health and their wellbeing is super important to us and we care and love for these animals as part of our vocation in life.

Our own health is also very important to us, and as a large percentage of our teams are women we have to be aware that breast cancer is a prevalent disease in New Zealand. Every day, nine women are diagnosed with breast cancer in New Zealand and we want to do our part to help with fundraising to help support these people who have been diagnosed.

This disease not only affects women but men also and many of us have our own personal stories of our friends, family members and also our clients going through treatment. We are sure everyone reading this knows at least one person who is currently or has been receiving treatment.

The money we raise from this page will be used to fund vital research projects and medical grants to help improve the survivorship of breast cancer in New Zealand. It will also help support kiwi women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer through services such as counselling and rehabilitation programmes.

We would love to raise at least $1000 for the Breast Cancer foundation and would like to thank you all for your support and generosity in advance.
