Relay for Life - Bayley Beaumont

I’m participating in the RFL 2012.

Relay For Life is an overnight, community event where teams of up to 15 people keep a baton moving in a relay-style walk over 18 hours to raise funds for the Cancer Council.  

Every dollar raised through Relay For Life helps the Cancer Council to:
•  Investigate new ways to prevent, detect and treat cancers. $12 million is invested in research each year.
•  Educate people in your community about ways they can reduce their cancer risk.
•  Advocate for cancer control.
•  Support people during their times of greatest need through financial assistance and free accommodation near treatment facilities in Rockhampton, Townsville, Cairns, Toowoomba and Brisbane.

You can help support me by making a secure online donation using your credit card here.

Thanks for your support!

The Coffee Break Project

As a Club we are sponsoring the Coffee Break Project.

The Coffee Break Project encourages the community to give up coffee during the month of October to raise funds for the charity Group 61 and increase awareness for those suffering from mental illness.

The Coffee Break Project aims to draw awareness of the significance and importance that ‘going for a coffee’ has for a particular segment of the community – those with poor mental health. For these people, going for a coffee is much more than just a caffeine kick.

Group 61 pairs volunteers up with people suffering from mental illness (referred to as friends) and volunteers take their ‘friend’ out once a week for coffee and conversation. For many ‘friends’, this is their only weekly outing. This simple act provides these forgotten members of our community with much needed social interaction and grants them greater freedom and confidence.

We challenge the community to have a coffee-free October and seek sponsorship from friends, family and colleagues. All funds raised will go towards Group 61.

PLEASE accept the challenge & take the plunge today: REGISTER as an individual or team.

We have a lot of people in our club and they in turn know a lot of others in the wider community so please spread the word about this great cause and be proactive.
