On October 7, members of Kew Country Club Lady Golfers will 'Tee Off for Breast Cancer Trials' - an event close to the hearts of many members and their families.

A fundraising initiative of Breast Cancer Trials, Tee Off supports clinical trials research to help every person affected by breast cancer to get the treatment they need to survive.

Sadly, 50 Australian women are diagnosed with breast cancer every day and each one of them will require a personalised treatment.

Kew Country Club Lady Golfers Women's Committee are looking forward to hosting a successful event and raising funds for trials research to identify new and effective breast cancer treatments.

Irene Williams KCC Ladies Captain said the club and its members are proud to be involved in the event.

"Breast cancer has touched the lives of many of our members and their families. We're proud to support breast cancer clinical trials research and to do this through a game of golf with friends," Irene said.

Ms Julie Callaghan, Chief Operating Officer - Fundraising and Philanthropy at Breast Cancer Trials, said the commitment and support of Kew Country Club and its members is greatly appreciated.

"We rely on the generosity of community groups to continue our research to find new and better treatments for all people affected by breast cancer," said Ms Callaghan. "We are thrilled to have the support of Kew Country Club and I encourage the community to get behind their fundraising efforts because trials save lives."

Breast Cancer Trials is a group of world-leading breast cancer doctors and researchers based in Australia and New Zealand committed to finding better treatments and prevention for people affected by breast cancer through clinical trials research. To learn more visit www.breastcancertrials.org.au
