Meet the Squirrels

Team Squirrel is looking for members as the prepare to go nuts for Prostate Cancer!

Walking with the "Squirrels - going nuts for Prostate Cancer"

Sunday 15th May
Welcome!

A couple of months ago, a good friend told me that he'd been diagnosed with Prostate Cancer.  As you can imagine I was shocked and upset.

Since then, I've realised how difficult it is to obtain treatment for Prostate Cancer in Hobart.  Fortunately for my friend, it looks as if he may be able to receive treatment through the public health system in Melbourne.

Conversations I've had recently have also highlighted how sensitive the subject is.  This is something that needs to change.  This is one of the reasons I've decided to participate in the PCFA's Walk for Him during Men's Health Week, 13th - 19th of June.

We hope that through our fundraising, we will begin to initiate conversations, promote awareness, and assist with early detection and provision of treatments for Prostate Cancer.

If you would like to participate, come and join our team.  Donate (if you can) as we do 49,000 steps for him.  Our goal is to raise $5000.

I would like to thank our current sponsors who have kick-started our campaign.  A big thank you to Peppermint Ridge Retreat, as well as the individuals who have generously donated to our fundraising efforts.

Our squirrels arrived yesterday.  They'll be walking with us, so keep a look out as they start their training!

Stay tuned for more updates and photos!  They'll be published in the Daily Squirrel because we're going to go nuts for Prostate Cancer.

Thank you for your support.

Cheers,
Kathryn
Walking for him and all the men in my life!
