Coinciding with this weekend’s Coates Hire Ipswich 300 at Queensland Raceway, the McGrath Foundation is introducing its newest McGrath Breast Care Nurse, Karen Miles, to support the local families in Ipswich experiencing breast cancer.
The placement of Miles as a breast care nurse in the region has come courtesy of Norton 360, who raised over $150,000 in its ‘Pink’ promotion to fund the vital position.
One of 63 McGrath Breast Care Nurses working in communities across Australia, Miles will provide physical, psychological and basic support to families experiencing breast cancer from diagnosis and throughout treatment.
To celebrate the placement, V8 Supercars champion and Norton 360 ambassador Craig Lowndes met Miles on behalf of all the Norton customers who have helped raise funds.
The Coates Hire 300 kicks off tomorrow with V8 practice.
