You might think going without a glass of alcohol for a whole month is tough, but it’s nothing compared with what people with cancer are dealing with. With that in mind, The Royal Melbourne Hospital invites you to sign up for Dry July to raise money so the hospital can continue to provide the best possible care for cancer patients.
And don’t worry if you think you might struggle to hold out for the whole month – you can try 14 days, 21 days or any duration you choose, because no matter how long you decide to go dry for, you’ll still be raising money to help people affected by cancer, not to mention you’ll discover the amazing health benefits of an alcohol-free lifestyle.
This year’s Dry July Ambassadors are Gembrook residents Kelly and Rory O’Sullivan. Kelly, who last year was diagnosed with head and neck cancer, has put together a group of fundraisers called Kelly’s Cancer Warriors – see https://www.dryjuly.com/users/kelly-osullivan – and says: “I owe my life to the amazing staff at RMH. Going dry for July is the very least I can do in order to raise much-needed funds and awareness for this terrible illness.”
Each year, Dry July raises more than $100,000 for the hospital’s cancer services. So put down that glass and take up the challenge at www.dryjuly.com/rmh
