Our fourth annual 'Put Your Foot Down' walk in Brisbane will take place on Sunday 29th November. Our walk this year will commence earlier, at 09:00, and at the same start point as last year - the East Lawn of the Queensland University of Technology. Purple is the colour of Pancreatic Cancer, so be sure to wear something purple on the day! There will be prizes for most creatively dressed in purple adults and children as well as for the highest individual fundraiser and the highest team fundraiser.
Last week in the beautiful setting of the Central Coast/Hunter Valley the ‘Woolies on Wheels’ charity cycle took place covering 350km in 3 days. This was the second time it has taken place and both times the team chose Avner’s Foundation as the main charity supported.
The mission to improve the 6.1% survival rate of Pancreatic Cancer gets a boost today with the announcement of Avner’s Foundation Grant Funding Recipients.
Today, on World Pancreatic Cancer Day, Avner’s Foundation is pleased to announce the recipients of a number of important Grants which it is hoped will pave the way for making survival of Pancreatic Cancer possible.
November is Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month, where the spotlight is put on the disease across the world. Avner’s Foundation has a jam packed schedule of events and announcements that will raise awareness and funds for Pancreatic Cancer.
Friday the 13th November marks World Pancreatic Cancer Day. To help raise funds and awareness of pancreatic cancer, the Agnew family – owners of the popular Audrey Wilkinson and Cockfighter’s Ghost/Poole’s Rock cellar doors in the Hunter Valley – are hoping to bring some much better luck to many, by very generously donating all profits from their busy cellar doors over the weekend to the Avner Pancreatic Cancer Foundation.
On the 1st March 2014 Muk Hair Care announced that they would be donating 50cents from every sale in Australia of Blonde muk Toning Shampoo and Blonde muk Toning Treatment to Avner’s Foundation. Pancreatic Cancer has affected the muk family personally on two occasions, so this initiative is very close to their hearts.
