“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.

“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!

Fogolar Furlan Inc is a group of migrants or first and second generation descendants of Friuli-Venezia-Giulia in north-eastern Italy. Each year the group holds a fundraising picnic. 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!
