Fight for your Cause: Over the next 3 months, I will be training with BT Fight Central & Body Torque Gym in preparation for a corporate charity boxing match in Townsville in October - yep, 5"1' me is getting in a real boxing ring with headgear and 14oz gloves. As I work to refine my boxing prowess I will be fundraising on behalf of The Cure Starts Now Australia, a local charity that raises and donates funds to advance Australian research into childhood brain cancer, whilst supporting local families affected by the disease.
For those I care about who have been unfairly affected by brain cancer, this crazy endeavour is for you. Let's hope I can throw a punch!
Brain cancer kills more Australian children than ANY other disease.
Brain cancer kills more Australians <40 than ANY other cancer.
9/10 children diagnosed with Leukemia, and 9/10 people diagnosed with breast cancer will survive today. Only 2/10 diagnosed with brain cancer will.
BUT it receives LESS THAN 5% of government funding. Diabolical, I know.
HELP ME TO HELP! $5 is roughly one coffee, one pizza, one schooner or vodka on cheap Tuey, or two bank withdrawal fees (the worst) – throw away money. Maybe this once you could put Queen Elizabeth II to better use by donating to The Cure Starts Now, and help give kids (and, in turn, adults) with brain cancer a fighting chance!
