Kym Walters’ Choice Foundation can be helped by southbound north-siders by driving through the Clem7 tunnel today. The tunnel has been given a new name of Kim7 for the next 24 hours. Every toll will contribute $1 to the foundation.
As of now, the drivers who are using Brisbane's new Clem7 tunnel today, have helped in raising more than $55,000 for a breast cancer support group. As a part of Think Pink Week, the tunnel is draped in pink color, in order to raise funds worth $100,000 for the Kim Walters Choices charity.
A pink color Hyundai has also been donated for the cause. As per a RiverCity Motorways spokesman, half of the target was achieved before 1pm.
The charity was established at the Wesley Hospital in Brisbane commemorating the late wife of former Brisbane Broncos captain Kevin Walters. She died at the age of 30 and left three children behind her. The foundation was set up in order to raise money into breast cancer research.
Specialist breast care and women’s health nurses, individual and family counseling, peer support and physiotherapy services for cancer patients are the support services offered by the program. Last year, about 12,000 people were supported through the program.
