Event description

Description

Project Pink Ta Ta Run is a ride from Maryborough to Bundaberg via Hervey Bay. Our aim is to raise money and awareness for breast cancer research. In particular, Dr Fiona Simpson's research project which is looking at how to make current treatment resistant cancer cells, like Triple Negative Breast Cancer, respond to targeted therapy by combining a drug that has been in clinical use for over 30 years. In exciting news, the research project has received ethics permission to go into the clinical trial phase.

Breast cancer is a malignant tumour that originates in the cells of the breast. Cancer develops when the cells grow abnormally and multiply. These abnormal cells develop into cancerous growths that can, in some cases, spread (metastasise) to other areas of the body.


1 in 8 Women will be diagnosed with breast cancer before the age of 85 and by 2020 17,210 Women are projected to be diagnosed with breast cancer every year. In Australia this is an average of 47 women every day

Breast cancer occurs predominantly in females, although men can also develop the disease, accounting for approximately 1% of cases. There is no 'one disease' that occurs in the breast, rather there are several types and sub-types of disease that may be referred to as breast cancer. These include:

  • Early/invasive breast cancer
  • Ductal carcinoma insitu
  • Lobular carcinoma insitu
  • Triple negative breast cancer
  • Paget's disease of the nipple
  • Inflammatory breast cancer
  • Locally advanced breast cancer
  • Secondary breast cancer (also known as advanced or metastatic breast cancer)
  • Male breast cancer

Join riders and pillions from Bundaberg, Hervey Bay, Maryborough & abroad and dare to be pink. Raising money and enjoying the scenery.
