Pink Up Campbelltown will help raise funds for the McGrath Foundation to place breast care nurses where they are needed most across Australia.

We're asking the whole community to get behind the initiative and set up a fundraising event of their own. 

Businesses, sporting and community groups should contact media@campbelltown.nsw.gov.au or call 4645 4673 to register your event as part of Pink Up Campbelltown.
