“After signing up for the Gold Coast Half Marathon, I decided that I would try to raise funds for Bowel Cancer Australia.

It went so well, I just put out a couple of simple posts and managed to raise some money for a cause close to my heart. That was my first half marathon too! 

I personally know some younger people who have been affected by bowel cancer. If I can bring some awareness to the younger generations and remind all to get checked if something isn’t right, then it’s a win for me.” ~ Ashleigh.

Huge thanks to Ashleigh for her amazing efforts, raising just over $1000 for us whilst spreading much needed awareness.
