The Jimboomba Pink Stumps fundraiser has ticked over the $10,000 mark, and organisers are aiming to make it even bigger next year.

Scott Bannan and Rodney Teese received the final total today, with $10,255 to go to the McGrath Foundation after the big day at Glenlogan Park.

Mr Bannan said he could not believe the final amount, but he was pleased to also raise awareness of the disease.

"I'm rapt," he said.

"But my biggest thing is awareness. If we can get a couple of girls to go and get checked, then that's great.

"The money is just a by-product of it."

Mr Teese said he was over the moon so much was raised.

"If you turn back the clock, two months ago we were talking about raising $1000," he said.

"Then all these great sponsors came on board and we took it from there."

They are planning a bigger event next year, with Mr Bannan keen to get schools involved.

"Maybe a principal from each one, with a PE teacher."
