Over $9000 raised for Ovarian Cancer Research

fundraising for ovarian cancer

I’m writing this on December 30th, nearly at the end of 2018 and the start of my 2019 challenge, just 27 days until my first swim on Jan 26th and over $9000 raised for Ovarian Cancer research – THANK YOU!

Thank You For Buying Hats

To everyone who has bought a Christmas swim hat, so far 1,278 hats have been sold, and they are still selling, with the Snowman and Reindeer designs left in stock. I have been amazed at the response to the hats, from the emails I have received to the conversations when I have been at the beach. The hats have been fantastic for getting people talking about ovarian cancer and hopefully, the awareness raising will mean that more women are looking for signs and symptoms and this horrible cancer if present can be caught earlier.

The hats have been so popular that I have decided to do some more designs in 2019, so watch this space!

Over $9000 raised for Ovarian Cancer

With donations and hat sales so far we have raised $9,282 – AMAZING just $110,718 left to go. How am I going to do that you may ask? Good question. I am planning to run a swim challenge in February – details to follow next month – which is next week! I am also liasing with a few companies to see if they will donate a few dollars per order for a month to my fundraiser… fingers crossed.

Hat Designs

If you have any ideas for the new hat designs, I’d love to know, please either put a comment below or drop me an email.

Donations Welcome!

You can still donate, which I would love. You can do this via the CanToo website which means you get a tax invoice, plus ALL yes ALL of your donation goes to funding the ovarian cancer researcher for the year – this is why I love Can Too, as well as the people I meet through it.
