Warmest thanks and CONGRATULATIONS to super supporter, Michelle, who was amongst the Top Individual Fundraisers for the Perth City2Surf (No. 2 in fact) raising over $10,300!
 
Michelle finished the 12km run in style, proudly wearing her 'Bum Shorts' for the last 3kms of the race.
 
"I am pleased to say that the bum pants were a huge hit with fellow runners and I was egged on to run harder as they shouted – Nice Bum!"
 
As a member of the 'Love My Family' Community, Michelle has also been sharing her own bowel cancer experiences to support others.
 
"My goal of the run was to help raise awareness for others to prevent such a disease and to promote the support services of Bowel Cancer Australia for people specifically without support networks when they are trying to get better and/or manage the disease as best as practicable." A very worthy cause.
 
Thanks so much Michelle and well done from all the team :)

My husband Peter was diagnosed with bowel cancer in June 2012 at age 36. He was referred for a colonoscopy by our GP as he had been experiencing rectal bleeding and a consistent change to his bowel habits.

The colonoscopy results found a tumour which was biopsied and confirmed to be cancerous. Peter was then sent for a CT scan and MRI to confirm locations and check for the possibilities of metastasis.

Father and daughter duo – Joe and Marie – had a fabulous time taking part in the HBF Run for a Reason (WA).
 
"We walked 12km starting in the Perth city and finishing at Gloucester Park, managing to walk the distance in 1hour and 54 minutes which we were pretty proud of.
 
It was a great morning and we enjoyed every minute of it." The pair chose to support Bowel Cancer Australia as a special way to honour the memory of Marie's Nonno (grandfather), who sadly passed away from bowel cancer earlier in the year. With the support of family and friends Joe and Marie raised much needed awareness and funds for bowel cancer, and we thank them so very much for their support.

Warmest congratulations and thank you supporter Georgie, who completed the HBF Run for a reason in Perth for Bowel Cancer Australia.
 
Georgie's motivation for taking part in the event - "I am running this for the amazing people I know and friends and their families who are fighting or who have sadly lost the fight against Bowel Cancer."
 
Working her way up to the event by taking part in other running events throughout her race preparation, the Run for a Reason was Georgie's first ever 12km event.
 
An absolutely amazing achievement, and made even sweeter by the fact that Georgie exceed her fundraising target for bowel cancer. Yay!

The Perth Run for a Reason marks the start of something big for Laura! An enthusiastic supporter of the cause, Laura did an amazing job in the 4km running event, and an equally wonderful job with her fundraising – exceeding her target and raising over $1500 for Bowel Cancer Australia.
 
"By the ripe old age of 20, I had lost my father and all of my grandparents to various forms of cancer, with my grandmother passing away most recently due to bowel cancer... so this was a cause very close to my heart. Thank you so much for the wonderful work you do. I am already looking forward to next year when I have set myself the target of running the 12km and raising $5000!"
 
Thank you Laura and best wishes for next year's event! (special thanks from Laura to all her sponsors too, she's very grateful)
