Since 2006, Curves gyms across the country have raised over $1.7 million to supported those affected by women’s cancers in Australia.
With 1 in 3 women being diagnosed with cancer, Cancer Council are incredibly grateful to Curves and the community, who help reduce the impact of cancer on our society. One of the key ways for women to reduce their cancer risk is through regular physical activity, which along with maintaining a healthy weight and eating a healthy diet can reduce the risk of many common cancers.
Every day in Australia, 70 women are diagnosed with breast or gynaecological cancer
Money raised from your pink fundraiser will help fund world-class research into women’s cancers, cancer prevention and advocacy programs, and support services to help those affected by women’s cancers.
$25 will help connect a woman with another woman who has gone through a similar cancer experience who can listen and share practical support.
$50 can help a cancer nurse on 13 11 20 give information and support to a woman through her cancer diagnosis.
$100 can help provide accommodation for a woman who needs to travel and stay away from home to access treatment.
$500 can go towards supporting research into breast and gynaecological cancers.
$1200 can cover some of the costs of recruiting women in vital studies to understand the causes of cancer.
