On the wagon, teetotal, drying out or abstaining. Whatever you call it, if you went alcohol-free for Dry July this year, you are going to make amazing things happen!
Dry July encouraged participants to lose the booze for 31 days in July to raise funds for people affected by cancer.
The Leukaemia Foundation is hugely proud to be a nominated beneficiary in this year’s Dry July fundraising campaign.
Since 2008, Dry July has inspired more than 160,000 Aussies to go dry, raising $37 million for people affected by cancer across Australia.
People who jumped on board the Dry July wagon for the Leukaemia Foundation will help patients going through treatment get to and from hospital – with less worry about expensive parking, the risk of infection or relying on friends and family.
As blood cancer diagnosis rates increase, the need for access to treatment and reliable transport continues to grow.
The transport service relieves some of the pressures faced by people with blood cancer and their families; particularly those with no access to transport, limited finances or those who have relocated for cancer treatments from rural and remote locations.
Going alcohol free for a month was a small sacrifice to help improve the lives of people living with blood cancer.
A few extra benefits of Dry July:
Healthier, clearer skin
Shed unwanted kilos
