Local nurse, mother of two and bowel cancer awareness warrior Hollie Conlan has raised $4300 for Bowel Cancer Australia as part of The Age Run Melbourne over the weekend. "Originally what I wanted to do was just the fun run, and I thought, I'll raise money for that. That was $500 to start with and now I've cracked $4000," Hollie Conlan said.
 
Mrs Conlan's mother suffered from bowel cancer nine years ago, spending time in Bendigo for the operation and recovery.

Inspired by her husband's brave battle with bowel cancer and to show her support throughout his bowel cancer journey, Katie decided to do something brave herself – a joint head shave to raise much needed funds and awareness for bowel cancer.
 
"In front of over 200 students at Melbourne Girls' College, my husband and I, two teachers, and two Year 9 students shaved our heads in support of Bowel Cancer Australia. It was a fantastic day and we were all incredibly proud of managing to raise over $7,000 for charity." said Katie.

In loving memory of her father Brett Avery, Amy organised the Blue Sapphire Ball to coincide with the 10th anniversary of his passing.

"By remembering Dad and supporting organisations like Bowel Cancer Australia we can educate and create awareness of this disease so no one else has to lose a family member to this treatable disease," Amy said.
