Move over my usual running efforts, now is the time for a real sacrifice- I'm shaving off my trademark golden locks! I've watched too many family members and friend go through treatment, with some of them sadly not make it through the battle a winner. And I know I'm not alone in this.
Throughout the fundraising drive I'll be sharing a range of stories where cancer has touched my life. Visit and like our Facebook page for access to these: https://www.facebook.com/goodbyegoldenlocks/
And we can't forget about who we are fundraising for, The Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research. The Institute is a WA based medical research centre who are doing some fantastic work in the war against cancer. Go to https://www.perkins.org.au to find out more about The Institute (plus I'll share bits along the way).
To make the Fundraising a little more interesting, we will be holding a fundraising group fitness class at Lords Recreation Centre on Sunday the 20th of Nov from 1:30 to 3:30ish It will be a Body Attack class(cardio) followed by Body balance (kind of like yoga). It costs $20 and you can either donate here to pay for the class or pay cash on the day. We will also be having a raffle on the day.
We will also be holding a public head shaving event so you can join in the fun of the day. It is on Sunday the 4th of Dec, 3pm at Lake Monger (Dodd St end). There will a raffle, a talk from Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research, food to purchase and of course the head shave!!
Finally an incentive to dig a bit deeper! If you donate over $200 as an individual, family, group or business, you will have the chance to cut a ponytail from my head! The first person to donate $200 and the highest donor are guaranteed to cut off a ponytail, with all other donations over $200 going into the draw to cut off any additional ponytails.
Thanks for your support.
