The team at Compressed Air and Power Solutions Australia (CAPS) participated in a unique initiative to raise funds for Western Australians affected by breast cancer.
The CAPS team wore their Purple Bra with pride over their clothes, helping to raise much needed funds as well as increase awareness of the disease.
On average, 40 women are diagnosed with breast cancer every day in Australia. Breast Cancer Care WA called on cancer survivors and supporters to become superheroes for Purple Bra Day. More than 4,000 champions took the challenge, including CAPS’ Perth Service Coordinator, Nat Saunders, who raised an exceptional $920. All proceeds will help provide support to the women trying to overcome breast cancer as well as their family members and carers.
Saunders was appreciative of the reception from colleagues, with many of them supporting the campaign to raise funds for the cause. The event also helped increase awareness of the great work done by Breast Cancer Care WA in providing emotional, practical and financial support tailored to meet the individual needs of Western Australian families affected by breast cancer.
The current fundraising total from the day stands at more than $390,000, with Breast Cancer Care WA overwhelmed by the effort and generosity from the whole WA community.
Caps Australia hopes to continue supporting the charity throughout the year.
