National Storage has been a proud partner of the Mater Foundation’s annual International Women’s Day Fun Run since 2016. This event raises funds for treatment, detection and intervention systems to support women living with breast cancer today, and to help save lives tomorrow.
In 2023, we were proud to come onboard as the Presenting Partner, resulting in the name change of the event to the International Women’s Day Fun Run presented by National Storage. This expansion of our partnership with the Mater Foundation further demonstrates our commitment to the communities in which we operate.
On Sunday the 12th of March 2023, 20,000 people took to the streets of Brisbane to join the Sea of Pink. Our National Storage team handed out thousands of frozen treats to participants, and contributed to Mater Foundation raising a whopping $2,023,101 for breast cancer research – over $250,000 more than the previous year!
It is a heart-warming event filled with big smiles, and an even bigger impact. We hope to see you there in the coming years!
