Mobile Test ‘n’ Cal Trade Green for Pink in Support of Breast Cancer
October is Australia’s official Breast Cancer Awareness month and serves as an opportunity for the community to join together to focus on and support those affected by Breast Cancer. Cancer Australia estimates that the number of new cases of breast cancer diagnosed in 2017 alone amounts to around 17,586 females and 144 males. With Breast Cancer still affecting so many lives throughout both the local and national community, Mobile Test ‘n’ Cal want to do their part in raising important awareness and funds for all those affected by this disease.
Throughout the month of October, both the Queensland and interstate Mobile Test ‘n’ Cal technicians will be seen wearing the eye-catching Pink Shirt range from Bisley Workwear. This range is part of the Real Men Wear Pink Campaign and each sale of the shirts will see a portion donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF); the national body that funds life-changing breast cancer research funded entirely by the Australian public.
As a widespread, mobile company, travelling to various sites across the country for testing and calibration, it is hoped that by making the colour switch for October that Mobile Test ‘n’ Cal can not only contribute important funds to the NBCF, but also show their support of the many men and women affected by Breast Cancer and other forms of Cancer in the community. The Real Men Wear Pink Campaign will be undertaken for the month of October however the team has plans to switch roles in the near future with the ladies in the office swapping their usual monotone colours for blue, in support of Prostate Cancer.
Mobile Test ‘n’ Cal considers it their mandate to contribute to the causes that affect not only the community that they service, but also the community from which their employees are derived. CEO, Andre Borell, says that ‘Many people have had a loved one affected by breast cancer or some form of Cancer during their lifetime, so we all know the importance of raising awareness and funds to find a prevention for these diseases. If we can make any kind of difference by changing our colours for the month, then it’s the least we can do. Real men wear pink after all!’.
Mobile Test 'n' Cal will also be matching every donation given onsite, dollar for dollar.
