Join Coast Sport for ‘Breakfast for Bowel Cancer’ on Red Apple Day
Bowel cancer is preventable, treatable and beatable if detected early.
Australia has one of the highest rates of bowel cancer in the world; 1 in 13 Australians will develop the disease in their lifetime. Coast Sport’s Accredited Practising Dietitian, Ali Redman is highly passionate about this topic and will be delivering an interactive presentation during the breakfast event on the impacts of bowel cancer, the modifiable risk factors (mainly diet related), and the importance of early detection.
Ali Redman will also be cooking up a storm for guests, preparing a yummy brekkie full of delicious and nutritious food and will also be demonstrating how guests can then go home and cook this for themselves. The dedicated dietitian chooses to support this worthy cause as bowel cancer has directly affected those close to her and she has seen the heart wrenching consequences of those living with it and the people around them, especially as it can affect people who are still so young. Redman states, “just creating awareness around bowel cancer is so important to get people to start a conversation with the people they care about, which is one of the main goals of Bowel Cancer Awareness Month.”
Guests will also receive a goodie bag with lots of delightful and healthy treats kindly donated by some of the sponsors of the event including Forest Fruit Market, Jalna, Lupin Co, Coles and Jimmy Gs etc and there will also be prizes on offer from Central Coast Mariners, Remedy Kombucha and more. So, don’t delay, book your ticket today and tell your friends to come too.
