Every day in Australia, around 50 women are diagnosed with a breast or gynaecological cancer.

Cancer Council is dedicated to beating women's cancers through prevention, education and awareness, as well as funding research to improve cancer detection and treatment.

In 2015 thousands of Cancer Council supporters bought our Pink Ribbon Day merchandise at supporting stores and outlets or at one of hundreds of sites manned by volunteers across the country. The 2015 merchandise range included the popular enamel pin and pink ribbon pens.

Girls' Night In is a national fundraising initiative to support research into breast and gynaecological cancers and support for women affected. Girls' Night In is an ideal opportunity to get girlfriends, workmates or family members together for a fun night, and at the same time raise funds to help beat women's cancers. In 2015, across Australia, hundreds of Girls' Night In hosts organised events, big and small, with support and tips from the Cancer Council team via our Pink Ribbon website and hotline.

Collectively our Pink events in 2015 raised $6 million for research, education and support services breast and gynaecological cancers.

National corporate supporters of Pink Ribbon Day in 2015 were Big W, Curves, Woolworths, Toll, New Balance, Century 21 Australia, Amcal, Sealy Posturepedic and W.Lane. Curves have proudly supported Girls' Night in since 2006, raising over $1.66 million for women's cancers.
