DRMCRL staff and students regularly organise and/or participate in community events such as the annual National Breast Cancer Foundation’s (NBCF) Mother’s Day Classic, Movember, Daffodil Day and Cancer Council Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea.
These events raise awareness of breast and prostate cancer research being undertaken at the DRMCRL as well as other local research facilities. These events are also important fund-raising activities for supporting ongoing research for breast and prostate cancers. Community funds underpin vital cancer research and are also used for support services, prevention programs, and advocacy. In 2017, the DRMCRL held its inaugural Pink Mo Breakfast, raising funds for Movember and NBCF.
