Boob sled to the rescue to raise funds for breast cancer

INTRODUCING the 'boob sled'.

The Antarctic, an intrepid Gold Coast man, a kite and bright pink sled complete with eye-catching breasts; it's truly a beautiful story.

Adventurer Dr Geoff Wilson with journalist and two-time breast cancer survivor Kate Carlyle will hold the Pink Polar Expedition Fundraising Luncheon at Saltbar Beachbar and Bistro on August 16, to raise funds for Dr Wilson's charity 'boob sled' Antarctica crossing.

Dr Wilson aims to raise $1 million for breast cancer awareness and research for the McGrath Foundation by completing his quirky trip, nicknamed the Pink Polar Expedition..

"Events like this are truly helping us to make a difference," foundation Ambassador Tracy Bevan said.

"We are proud to have 84 McGrath Breast Care Nurses working nationally who together have supported over 20,000 Australian families experiencing breast cancer."

On the day Dr Wilson, Mrs Carlyle and Ms Bevan will tell the story of how the 'boob sled' and the expedition were born, while those in attendance will also enjoy a fashion parade by Sunburn, entertainment by comedian Mandy Nolan and a sizeable buffet lunch, including two hour basic drinks package.

The McGrath Foundation aims to fund 150 McGrath Breast Care Nurses nationally, ensuring that every Australian woman and her family experiencing breast cancer has access to a McGrath Foundation breast care nurse.

Bookings are essential for the $55 event and they can be made online at saltbar.com.au or by calling 1300 725 822.
