Big thanks to the Northern Stingers QPSRLA for raising $3200 in support of Bowel Cancer Australia through a Sports Memorabilia Charity Auction to help others!

The Northern Stingers Queensland Police Service Rugby League Association (QPSRLA) Team has a proud tradition of annually supporting various charities for the past decade.
 
The Northern Stingers consist of QPS Employees (both Officers and Unsworn Members) spread between the District boundaries covering north of Ingham, South of the Burdekin and West well past Charters Towers. Over the past decade, the Northern Stingers have raised well over $30,000 for their adopted charities, while competing in annual charity football matches and the QPSRLA State Championships.

As a team, the ‘Bum Buddies’ have fundraised and created awareness for Bowel Cancer Australia since 2012. “Our team was established and led by Emma Mellier after she was diagnosed with Stage 4 bowel cancer; she was 30 years old at the time. Over the two years Emma passionately led the group; we rose close to $20,000 and were able to get people talking about bowel cancer in young people. Emma Passed away in 2014 aged 32 years. The Bum Buddies Team will continue our efforts for Bowel Cancer Australia in her honour until a cure is found,” said Alanah.

Rachel, Neisha, Jessica, Emma, Stephanie and Nicole organised a Lip Sync for Bowel Cancer fundraising event complete with live music, comedy and entertainment. There was plenty of fun and laughs while raising awareness and much needed funds for bowel cancer.
 
“So many people have been affected directly or indirectly by bowel cancer. My grandfather is a survivor of bowel cancer and my best friend, Stephanie, is currently battling stage 4 bowel cancer and was diagnosed at just 28 years of age. She is now 31 years of age and has been told that there is no cure for the tumours that have spread to her liver and will continue on treatment long term or until there is a cure. We hope that raising money for Bowel Cancer Australia will aid research and the development of new treatments for bowel cancer, to help find a cure for Stephanie and raise awareness to assist others in the early detection of bowel cancer,” said Nicole.

“My stepmother was diagnosed with bowel cancer late last year and is currently undergoing chemotherapy. This is just a small thing I can do to honour her and feel less helpless, and also raise awareness of bowel cancer,” said Kirby.
 
Kirby shaved her head at home with just a few family and friends in attendance and raised over $800 from the fundraising event.
 
Thank you Kirby for your generosity and for helping making a difference!

“After participating in Decembeard last year, I was really keen to do something more for Bowel Cancer Australia. With my 30th birthday approaching, I decided to do something I'd never done before: fall out of an airplane! I am terrified of heights, so this was a very scary prospect for me. However, I knew it was something I really wanted to do, so I roped in a handful of good friends and registered to jump. With the help of some amazing supporters, and my employer's donation-matching program, I was able to raise over $1,000 for this great cause!” said Felicity.
