Thanks to The Mark Cooper Family and Carters Public House, the inaugural Northcote Ute Muster and fundraiser was a complete success with a total of $1,140 raised on the night. A sell-out crowd turned out for the event, featuring country acts The Gami Gami Devils and Velvet Archers, as well as plenty of door prizes, finger food and other entertainment.

The organisers donated a percentage of each ticket sale to Bowel Cancer Australia for medical research and awareness programs.

Following a gruelling, yet rewarding, 750km journey through Europe, fundraiser David and his wife Ela finally made it to Santiago in Spain.

David organised the 'Camino or pilgrimage' through the Pyrenees from France to Santiago, Spain to show his support for Ian, who was recently diagnosed with bowel cancer. David and Ela covered 750 km across a variety of landscapes and mountain ranges, carrying everything and staying in dormitories with the other pilgrims and travellers. After four weeks on foot they made it to Santiago.

When Daniel lost his father, Garry, to bowel cancer he wanted to honour his memory with a special tribute. Daniel's father was a key member of the Virtual Airline Community, known as the RallyeAir Asia Pacific, and loved flying on the Flight Simulator. He even kept up his hobby during his treatment as it offered a distraction to the reality of the tough battle at hand.

"We are essentially a community that operates and flies online the International Virtual Aviation Organization using Microsoft Flight Simulator," said Daniel.

Fundraiser and patient, Jo, has one message for younger people with bowel cancer symptoms – "go with your gut".

At 46, Jo thought she was too young for bowel cancer but quickly realised this is not always the case.

"In 2013 I was diagnosed with bowel cancer. It was a massive shock and something that I knew very little about. It was at a time in my life that I felt very healthy, happy, energised and life was actually pretty fun," Jo said.
"If something is not right keep getting it checked until you are happy."
