Red Energy partnered with Breast Cancer Network Australia in 2015 to lend support to Australians affected by breast cancer.
Our partnership with BCNA enables us to contribute, support and collaborate with what is a very personal cause to many Australians particularly BCNA’s network of supporters.
Our mission is to raise awareness of the support BCNA provides, so no one has to go through breast cancer alone. Which is why from the 3rd September – 5th December, approximately 400,000 pink bills will be sent to residential customers and commercial account holders. Red customers will receive at least one pink bill during the campaign, whether it be gas or electricity.
Throughout the year and beyond we continue to work closely with BCNA on their calendar of community events. We’re especially proud to be a Major Event Partner of BCNA’s flagship event the 20th Anniversary Field of Women which took place on the grounds of the MCG on Sunday 12th August. Words can’t describe how it feels to stand on the G and pay tribute to the 18,200 men and women who will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year.
50 Australians are diagnosed with breast cancer every day.
Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) is incredibly proud of our four year partnership with Red Energy. Red Energy are a very community focused organisation and have supported BCNA in a number of ways including as one of our major corporate partners and supporting events such as the Pink Lady AFL Matches and Pink Lady Luncheons. In 2018 BCNA celebrates its 20th anniversary with the Field of Women at the MCG, and we are very grateful to Red Energy for helping us make this significant event possible. These events build awareness for the work that we do across the community and help raise much needed funds to support more than 18,200 Australians that will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. We could not ensure all Australians affected by breast cancer receive the very best information, treatment and support in every part of Australia without their passion and support for us. Thank you Red Energy, we are so grateful for your support. If you or someone you love has been affected by breast cancer then we are here for you – call our Helpline on 1800 500 258
