Pink pledge for a cause
Local real estate agent Richard Naulls is going all out in pink to raise money for this year’s Mother’s Day Classic.
Mr Naulls and his Ray White Karratha team will work with local businesses and host fundraising events in the hope of raising $10,000 for breast cancer research.
The Ray White Karratha team have already raised more than $3000, with Mr Naulls pledging to dye his hair bright pink when funds hit $5000.
His pink locks will be styled into a a mohawk if funds hit $7500 and if $10,000 is raised, he will run the 4km Mother’s Day Classic in a bright pink morph suit.
Mr Naulls’ dedication to the cause came after his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer.
“My wife Narelle was diagnosed nine years ago at 36 with two young children and unfortunately, her mum was diagnosed late last year,” he said.
“Me colouring my hair pink or running in a pink morph suit is the least I can do for not only two women I love and admire greatly, but to help other women and their partners be aware of breast cancer.”
Every Tuesday in April, YoGetIt will donate $1 from every frozen yoghurt sold to the Ray White team.
Two charity car washes were also organised, with the first contributing $1000 to the cause, and another to be held outside the Ray White offices on Saturday, April 30.
On Saturday from noon-5pm at the Tambrey bottle shop, there will be a sausage sizzle, and on May 5 at Karratha City shopping centre, Mr Naulls will dye his hair and conduct a virtual bike ride.
“We are so fortunate that the community of Karratha are so supportive of us and this cause,” he said.
The Mother’s Day Classic is a walk and fun run held annually on Mother’s Day to raise funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Pilbara towns hosting the event are Karratha, Tom Price and Pannawonica.
