Healthy Environs hosted a Men's Health Week themed football round in Roxby Downs to support Bowel Cancer Australia and raise awareness.

"The aim of the Men’s Health Week round is to heighten awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease, while providing information on health services available to boys, men and their families. We had eight men book into the local GP for their free health check which is something we do annually in collaboration with the local GP.

On the event day, players wore blue socks and the officials’ blue shirts. The day also included activities for kids, dancers, music, half time games etc. We decided that we wanted some of the proceeds from the gate and the proceeds made selling stubby holders to go to a cause. The committee decided they would like this cause to be Bowel Cancer Australia. One of our committee members sadly losing her husband to bowel cancer and another has seen her stepdad battle this disease and luckily survive." ~ Terressa
