Triathlon Pink has become somewhat of an institution in Australia – the hallmark of charity triathlon events in our great country. For those who haven’t heard of it, Triathlon Pink or the Pink Triathlon is a series of events held throughout the year and all over Australia by the National Breast Cancer Foundation in an effort to raise funds for research into the prevention, detection, treatment and hopefully a cure of breast cancer and forms a part of their new “Zero Deaths from breast Cancer by 2030” project. Since the foundations establishment in 1994 they have managed to raise over $115 million dollars for over 400 Australian-based research efforts aided at improving the health and wellbeing of those affected by breast cancer. The event itself, since it’s inception in 2007, has raised over $1.89 million for breast cancer research, support and care – with an attitude geared towards fun and participation all in the name of a fantastic cause. This April 29th the Sunshine Coast is proud to be hosting its own Triathlon Pink event, right here at the University of the Sunshine Coast in Sippy Downs.
