Gordon Rugby Club are Teaming up with the McGrath Foundation to raise the awareness of Breast cancer.
The Ladies Day lunch is an appropriate time of the year to highlight Breast Cancer and the way we can all help, men and women, to reduce the impact it has on the better half of the population. The Ladies Day lunch is a great day for both men and women to come together for a common cause, we hope to see you all there.
The McGrath Foundation raises money to place McGrath Breast Cancer Nurses in communities right across Australia, as well as increase breast cancer awareness in young Australian women. Gordon Rugby Club have teamed up with the McGrath Foundation to try and raise money for the foundation through a lunch in which Pink Rugby Jerseys will be auctioned off.
Tracy Bevan, Foundation Ambassador and Director
Tracy moved to Australia from England when she married cricketing legend, Michael Bevan, in 1994.
It was Tracy who helped set up the McGrath Foundation in 2003 following her best friend Jane McGrath’s diagnosis and experience with breast cancer.
Tracy remains one of the driving forces behind the McGrath Foundation and is dedicated to increasing breast awareness in young women whilst raising much-needed funds to place McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities right across Australia.
In her current role as Foundation Ambassador and Director on the McGrath Foundation Board, Tracy spends a great deal of her time travelling around the country speaking at different events to raise awareness about the vital role the McGrath Foundation plays whilst encouraging all women to be breast aware.
