Penrith Civic Centre Lights Up in Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness

Wednesday, 18 October 2023

Penrith Council is pleased to join the community for its sixth year of Pink Up Penrith. 

Pink Up Penrith is a campaign that aims to raise awareness about breast cancer and funds for the McGrath Foundation. The McGrath Foundation provides support to families experiencing breast cancer, with the goal of ensuring that every family has access to a breast care nurse.  

To show our support, the Civic Centre is being illuminated in pink throughout October to support Pink Up Penrith, as part of its efforts to raise funds toward specialist McGrath Breast Care Nurses in communities across Australia.

Whether in public or private care, the McGrath Breast Care Nurses are available to assist anyone affected by breast cancer, providing care and support for early or metastatic breast cancer.  

Penrith Mayor Todd Carney expressed his gratitude seeing the community come together for a good cause.

“We have a tight-knit community here and I know we will band together to raise money for Breast Care Nurses that help individuals and their families affected by breast cancer,” Cr Carney said.     

“By lighting up the Civic Centre in pink, we hope to raise awareness about breast cancer and the important work of the McGrath Foundation. We encourage everyone to show their support during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.”  

Council would like to thank the McGrath Foundation for their important work and for allowing us to show our support through this initiative. If you would like to learn more about Pink Up Penrith, please visit
