Footprints Gear

Online shop supporting Bowel Cancer Australia

Brigid and Greg have opened an outdoor gear shop called Footprints Gear in Alstonville with profits from the shop going to charities close to their hearts.
 
Greg's mother passed away from bowel cancer and in 2012 Brigid was diagnosed with bowel cancer which is why they have chosen profits from the shop to go to bowel cancer research.

Want X is the brainchild of Gold Coast’s own Libby and Andrew Want. Want X was created to fill a gap in the current young adult jewellery market & to create awareness at the same time.

Australian Taxation Office, Canberra

Supporting Red Apple Day 2016

The Australian Taxation Office in Canberra got behind Bowel Cancer Australia and Red Apple Day to help raise awareness.
 
“Our Red Apple Day display and fundraiser at ATO National Office went really well. We handed out all the flyers as staff came in for the day and sold all the pins by the end of lunch. We also had flyers on all the notice boards and at the top of the escalators as you enter the building. On the day everyone was really supportive and lots of people asked questions about tests. Unfortunately we did hear stories about people who had lost loved ones to bowel cancer and at a young age” said Michelle.

UBS collects $12.5k for cause

Australian Financial Review

 
The UBS equities team has taken time away from their Bloomberg screens to raise $12,500 for bowel cancer awareness. It was a group effort- and took just a few hours - helped by UBS's head of sales trading Dave Singer initially offering to shave his head (to a number three setting) for $1000. But the total raise exceeded all expectations which meant the stakes were also raised on Dave's shave.
 
George Kanaan, head of distribution, was tasked with the shaving duties. Getting behind the cause and Bowel Cancer Awareness Month was important to the UBS team, after Kanaan was diagnosed with the illness in May 2012. He subsequently won that battle and is now a Bowel Cancer Australia Ambassador.
 
UBS Australia recently held a bowel cancer awareness session for more than 100 employees. Kanaan hosted the event and snared his journey of diagnosis and treatment Also speaking at the presentation was Brian McFadyen, director of Bowel Cancer Australia. He noted the importance of raising awareness of symptoms and screening.
