Get ready to grow - Bowel Cancer Australia’s annual Decembeard® campaign starts in two weeks!

Bowel cancer is Australia's second deadliest cancer and around 1 in 11 Aussie men will develop the disease in their lifetime.

That’s why we’ve dedicated the month of December to raising much needed funds and awareness for bowel cancer in men.

Real beards or fake beards. Young beards or old beards. Long beards or short beards.

Anyone can get involved in Decembeard® and there are no complicated rules.

Now in its sixth year, Decembeard® Australia is a hair–raising fundraiser that encourages men to grow a beard or take a Beard Challenge, raise funds and help us beat bowel cancer.

Women and children can also take part in Decembeard® Australia by hosting a fundraiser throughout December.

Get Chin-spired! 

Grow a beard, sponsor someone who is, or get your friends involved by creating a team and make yourself the captain.

Share your beardspiration and fundraise together! 

Are you ready to grow? Register now at Decembeard® Australia.

Decembeard® Australia's goal is to have a lasting impact on our health future - where no one dies of bowel cancer and all those diagnosed receive the support they need.
