“We hosted a big-night-in event to raise money for bowel cancer research in memory of a friend’s father who passed away from the illness in 2012. We raised $1,375 total for this cause. We hosted a backyard party where our guests kindly donated their usual night out costs to Bowel Cancer Australia instead. It was a huge success!” said Stephanie.

Katie decided to take part in Cooly Classic, Australia's ultimate swim challenge. She completed the 1km ocean swim in an amazing 28:21 minutes.
 
She chose to raise awareness of bowel cancer due to someone very close to her receiving a recent diagnosis at the age of 31.
 
Katie smashed her original goal of $4,500 and raised over $4,600. Thank you Katie for doing a great job!

In 2015, Bowel Cancer Australia was the charity of choice. “We had 340 people and it was a very successful day. We raised a total of $4,500. We had games for the children including a pasta eating competition for the children which they loved. We had 20 beautiful raffle prizes all donated by sponsors,” said organiser Giuliana. Warmest thank you to Giuliana and all involved in the fundraiser!

Big thanks to young fundraiser Eleanor (Nell), who raised close to $2000 in support of Bowel Cancer Australia through her big "hair chop" to help others!
 
"For a long time I have wanted to shave my hair off. And then I thought I could donate my hair to make wigs for people who have cancer, and maybe raise money too. My Aunty Georgina’s best friend Leisa, died from bowel cancer just before Christmas in 2015. All the kids were happy because it was Christmas time, but Gina was really, really sad. Leisa also has a little daughter who is only seven years old. That’s not much younger than me. Mum wasn’t so sure that shaving all my hair off was a great idea. She was a bit worried I wouldn't like my new look! So after a lot of discussion, we decided I could cut my hair really, really short and still donate it to make a wig. By becoming an Every Day Hero, I am hoping to also raise some money for Bowel Cancer Australia. I would be very sad if this happened to someone I love, and I feel sad for Leisa and her family and friends. She was only 47."
