“I am a Personal Trainer at Ripples Leisure Centre in St Marys. Through my work, I organised the ‘train the trainer’ fundraising event where our members could choose an exercise for the trainer to complete with each exercise being a different price.

I chose to support Bowel Cancer Australia as I lost my uncle Gavin 2 years ago at the young age of 39. I was very close with my uncle Gavin and I used this as a way to remember him and to encourage young people to get checked.

I managed to raise $1020 which I thought was really great for the first time doing this event.” ~ Taren.
