Tangerine Unites with the Brisbane Pancare Community
2022-07-14 10:02 am
On the 26th of June, Tangerine's events crew joined the Pancare Brisbane community at their #UniteForHope event in New Farm.
Unite for Hope is Pancare Foundation's major fundraising event series where people from across the nation walk or run a distance of either 5 or 10km. These events provide the Pancare community an opportunity come together to offer support, generate awareness, and raise much-needed funds which help the Foundation improve outcomes for people impacted by upper GI cancers - some of the lowest survival rates among all major cancers.
On event day - which was bathed in Brissie sunshine, the Tangerine team enjoyed handing out fashionable tote bags (we're totes biased) as each participant crossed the finish line. The bag included a stress ball, sweet treat, and an information flyer detailing Tangerine's Pancare nbn™ offer, which involves a donation of $125 to the Foundation each time a community member makes the switch to one of Tangerine's award-winning nbn™ plans.
Pancare's National Events Manager, Sheena Delaney said that having Tangerine as their inaugural event partner for the 2022 Unite for Hope face-to-face events has been of significant value and importance to them.
"They are more than just an event Partner; they have become part of the pancare family, and our community has embraced them as one of their own. At both our Sydney and Brisbane events, Tangerine has improved our event experience by bringing together the best of what both parties have to offer. We are both working toward a common goal - to provide a brighter future to those suffering from upper gastrointestinal cancers."
Tangerine Channel Partnership Manager, Dean Harris is proud of Tangerine's ongoing commitment to donate $125 each time a Pancare community member makes the switch to one of Tangerine's award-winning nbn™ plans.
"This donation will help fund a Specialist Upper GI Cancer Nurse who will be able to provide support and care during difficult times," said Dean.
The Tangerine team was pleased to hear that the Brisbane #uniteforhope event raised an outstanding total of $15,748 which feeds into Pancare's fundraising goal of $425,000 for their 2022 event series.
The team is also looking forward to participating in Melbourne's Unite for Hope event on the 13th of November and helping the Foundation get closer to their 2022 fundraising goal.
