Big thanks to Lorella and all who supported the 'LetsGoBlue4BC - for the fighters, survivors and the taken' event in support of Bowel Cancer Australia.

The brainchild of super supporter Lorella, the event raised much needed funds and awareness for bowel cancer in memory of her sister Anna who sadly lost her battle with the disease at a young age.

You could have heard a pin drop as Raphael sang at the Groove4Faith charity gig proudly supporting Bowel Cancer Australia.

Inspired by her close friend's diagnosis with bowel cancer Georgie organised the benefit concert to raise funds for the charity and to support Raphael through her bowel cancer journey. Held at The Motor Room in West End, the event featured an array of fabulous musical performances, raffles and prize giveaways. Of highlight were two very generous donations from football player Thomas Brioch – a signed Brisbane Roar jersey and his $5000 A-Leauge All Stars match fee.

Following the sad passing of a young colleague, the team at Callaghans have been doing a wonderful job raising funds and awareness for bowel cancer among colleagues, clients and their local community.

Beginning with one of Bowel Cancer Australia's Rear in Gear educational presentations about bowel cancer and prevention to all staff at the firm, the team at Callaghans went on to organise a fabulously successful fundraising event in their home town of Canberra.

Following on from Lewis and Steph's marvellous Great Ocean Road marathon fundraiser in 2014 (that raised $9,425) the pair have enthusiastically continued their support during Lewis' training for the 56km Two Bays Trail Run as well as the 235km Peaks Challenge bike ride in March 2015.
 
"As for the run itself it was certainly a challenge. The hard work for these events is normally in the preparation with the run itself just carrying the fear of the body letting me down matched with the thrill of achieving a personal goal. In this case though I admit to underestimating just how tough the actual run would be. The course itself was spectacular but after hitting the wall three and a half hours in it took all my reserves to continue for another two hours to the finish line" said Lewis.
 
"One of the toughest things I find with Steph's disease is the helplessness of not being able to assist. I often marvel at her attitude as she endures the nausea, rashes and other side effects of her treatment. It certainly makes motivating oneself to get out for a run an easy task".
