Griffith University’s Institute for Glycomics is partnering with Sanctuary Cove Golf and Country Club for a third year to raise funds to aid vital breast cancer research.

The Sanctuary Cove Precinct is “GOING PINK” for the month of October and will host a series of pink-themed events and promotions to raise funds and awareness for the devastating disease which impacts more than two million women every year globally.

“We are extremely grateful to Sanctuary Cove Golf and Country Club for their continued support and tireless fundraising efforts,” said Institute for Glycomics Director, ProfessorMark von ItzsteinAO.

“Local partnerships are vital to the progression of our research. When communities work together with a shared vision, they truly have the power to make a difference.”

All funds raised will go straight to the Institute’sAustralian Cancer Research Foundation International Centre for Cancer Glycomics, a unique international resource dedicated to translational cancer glycomics research. The Institute’s unique approach to breast cancer research, combined with some of the brightest researchers, clinicians and surgeons in the field of cancer glycomics, provides great hope in the battle against breast cancer.

The Institute for Glycomics comprises more than 200 multidisciplinary researchers and support staff determined and dedicated to find new ways to diagnose, prevent and cure cancer.

Executive General Manager of Sanctuary Cove Golf and Country Club, Paul Sanders said: “You’d be hard pressed to find someone who’s life hasn’t been touched by the devastation of breast cancer. This annual event is an integral part of the Club’s calendar and truly believe in the amazing work done at the Glycomics Institute. It’s our honour to support the vital work that they do and hope that other Gold Coast businesses become involved with the Institute.”

The pink-themed, month-long calendar of events at Sanctuary Cove offers a multitude of things to do. Major fundraisers include a Go Pink raffle, golf clinics, an ‘Uncorked Series” wine journey at The Jabiru Restaurant and more.
