Turning Canungra Pink was started in 2011 by local business owner Di Crooks, herself a breast cancer survivor. In 2013 the Canungra Chamber of Commerce became involved, creating a fundraising event that lasted throughout October and involved most of the businesses and many residents in the town. In the past 2 years Turning Canungra Pink has successfully raised over $40,000 per year – a great effort for such a small town.
Funds raised from events held in October 2019 will be donated to Cancer Council Queensland (50 per cent) and Pink Assist (50 per cent), a local fund that provides practical support to local people who are being treated for cancer.
Pink Assist was established in 2017 and has helped a number of Canungra residents through their cancer journey.
It’s all about raising money and awareness for all types of cancer.
