What better way to support a cause close to your heart than driving an 18 year old Ford Transit Ambulance named Olive for over 14,000km, through 14 countries, for 37 days from London to Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia!
That's exactly what adventurers Caitlyn, Dan, Elly and Grace - Australian/English team Party of Five - did for the recent Mongol Rally.
After a challenging start, the crew made it to the finish line in one piece, not only coming away with experiences they'll cherish forever, but also raising much needed funds for Bowel Cancer Australia and the Christina Noble Children's Foundation.
Thanks guys, and here's to your next big adventure! Read more about the team on their website Mongol Madness.
Inspired by a good friend's bowel cancer journey, Michelle decided to cut off her long locks to support the very important cause.
"I created an online fundraising page because I wanted to show my support for my friend, and cancer survivor, Julie. Julie has released a book, Just A Little Unwell, about her own very personal story of diagnosis, treatment & remission of bowel cancer.
I was also honoured to illustrate the front cover of Julie's book". Michelle had her hair cut and shaved on the evening of the book launch, raising over $2700. Congratulations Michelle (& Julie) and thank you for your super support!
Following Jeff's diagnosis with colon cancer, Katie decided she wanted to hold a very special housewarming party in his honour.
"Not long before the party my brother was told the cancer had spread and he only had a short time left to live. The donations started coming in online even before the party and many people were coming to say their last good byes. Jeff passed away 2 weeks later. He was 33 and leaves behind a beautiful wife and two gorgeous girls. We will miss him terribly.
At his funeral I urged everyone to become aware of the signs of bowel; colon and other cancers, and that they can affect young people as well as old. I hope that my brother's story will make other people aware of the risks and the signs of cancer and catch it in the early stages when it can still be treated. Even superheroes can get cancer"
Warmest thanks Katie, family and friends, we very much appreciate your support.
Warmest congratulations to Erin and Madison, raising over $8000 through their joint head shave in support of bowel cancer awareness and Bowel Cancer Australia.
When Erin's mum was diagnosed with bowel cancer for the second time, friend Madison suggested the pair do something to raise funds for Bowel Cancer Australia - go bald for bowel cancer!
And what an amazing job they did. Big thanks Erin, Madison, Judi and the Cobram community for you fabulous fundraising and support, we greatly appreciate it.
It was the passing of a very dear loved one that led to long-time supporters Justin and Leanne's decision to support Bowel Cancer Australia through monthly donations.
The couple were BCA's inaugural Regular Givers, and remain the longest standing supporters, contributing to the charity on a monthly basis.
We thank Justin and Leanne so very much for their support - making our important work in bowel cancer advocacy, awareness, education, support and research possible. Read the full story at Regular Giving - Making a Difference
