MORE than 60 Coffs Coast women started their day in the healthiest of ways yesterday. It was not so much about what they ate, but where and why.

The women gathered at Monday's Pink Ribbon Breakfast at Coffs Ex-Services Club to raise funds for breast cancer research.

A joint project by the Coffs Ex-Services Club and the Titivators dragon boat paddling group, the breakfast also saw the women listening to talks by Olympian gymnast and diver Alexandra Croak; Coffs Harbour councillor Jennifer Bonfield and National Breast Cancer Foundation ambassador Maureen Shaw.

Coffs Ex-Services Club marketing and events manager Tony Ryan said the breakfast had been very successful and they were looking forward to becoming more involved next year.

The club has been heavily involved in breast cancer fundraising for several years, a push supported by several of the club's directors and directors' wives, including Lois Doyle, the wife of club chairman David Doyle. The club also supported the dragon boat racing carnivals at Port Macquarie and Grafton.
