Wendys bands together to support CanTeen

4 Oct 2011

Throughout the month of October, Wendys stores across the country will be selling bandannas to help raise funds to support young Australians living with cancer.

Wendys is again supporting CanTeen's National Bandanna Day, an event that will hold even more significance this year - Wendys has just formalised its relationship with CanTeen, signing on as a major national partner for the next three years.

"CanTeen's mission is to support, develop and empower young people living with cancer by providing an Australia-wide peer support network for 12-24 year-olds," said Wendys CEO Rob McKay.

"At Wendys we see a lot of people that age - on both sides of the counter - so we're big supporters of the work CanTeen does for young people in our community."

"We’re enormously pleased to have signed on as a national CanTeen partner for the next three years and are very much looking forward to supporting this organisation in its efforts to provide invaluable support services for young people living with cancer."

CanTeen bandannas will be available at selected Wendys outlets in the lead up to National Bandanna Day on October 28.

"Our bandannas are more than just a fashion accessory - they are a symbol of the cancer experience for young people. They also represent the importance that CanTeen places on enjoying every moment and living life to the full," said CanTeen CEO Andrew Young.

"This year we're aiming to sell one million bandannas so we're really pleased to have Wendys on board to help us achieve this. We're also very excited about our partnership with this iconic Australian brand and are looking forward to working with them over the next three years."
