The leadership team of Woolworths took on a massive challenge – to ride 320km in 3 days and raise a target of $150,000 for Avner’s Foundation in the process! A couple of months out, most did not own a bike and very quickly had to buy one, lots of lycra and get into some serious training!
muk Hair Care a global hair care company with a head-office in Melbourne have experienced on several occasions the devastating effects of Pancreatic Cancer. It has motivated them to play a significant part in raising awareness of Pancreatic Cancer and funds for research.

November is internationally recognised throughout the world as Pancreatic Cancer Awareness month and for the first time ever, a coalition of Pancreatic Cancer charities from around the world joined forces to create a World Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Day (13th November) with the goal of elevating awareness of the disease. I was privileged to be the Australian representative for this initiative.
We had a truly incredible walk in Hobart with numbers almost four times what they were in 2013. The weather was slightly challenging – 5 degrees to begin with, with snow on the mountain, rain, gusting winds and hail during the morning.
The third annual Adelaide walk was held on a fresh spring morning at Grange. In line with the Brisbane and Melbourne walks, numbers increased substantially at the walk, with 311 registrations (138 last year) and so far $13,070 has been raised.
Our 3rd Annual walk was a huge increase on last year, 232 people registered and $24,948 has been raised so far. So heartwarming to see so many wanting to be part of the push to raise awareness and funds for Pancreatic Cancer research.
