The Purcell girls are at it again …

Back in August 2011 Bridgette Purcell, co-owner of Dutchee Dutchee in Cronulla, spoke to I AM magazine about the ABC Board Against Breast Cancer event and her mission to raise much needed funds for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.  Over 40 female participants joined Bridgette on the slopes creating what was a very pink and boobilicious weekend – they even had a giant set of ice knockers to prove it…

This year, however, the group will be boarding against brain cancer, and from what I’ve heard, this time round the boys will be hitting the slopes too. Bringing boys and girls together on a passionate path to raise funds doing something they LOVE, can only lead to one thing – a sh*tload of FUN!

Get involved! Either join or donate. You can head into Dutchee Dutchee to donate, or support one of the local fundraisers, like Matt Rise from Elite PT, who is taking donations at Annas Shop Around the Corner [across from Munro Park Cronulla] or at Elite PTSC located on South Cronulla Beach.

When: Saturday 30th August 2014
Where: Thredbo Resort

Get a group of your mates together for a fun day boarding while raising money for brain cancer.

The 3rd Annual ʻBoard ABC Dayʼ will take place at Thredbo this year where participants will ʻBoard Against Brain Cancerʼ (Board ABC).

Many people are still unaware that brain cancer is one of the most lethal yet understudied of all cancers. It is the leading cancer killer for young people under age 39 and children under 10, yet receives very little research funding. This event is in association with the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation.

This year the format will include an ‘all female’ snowboarding session that offers female riders a chance to unite and ride in a non-intimidating environment, with a bunch of girls. Participants will be coached by some of Australiaʼs top female snowboarders, as well as professional snowboard instructors.

There will also be an ʻall maleʼ Jumping Workshop. This will cater to riders who can already ride the terrain parks and want to improve their jumping and spinning. Participants will be coached by some of Australiaʼs best male snowboarders. They will have the opportunity to obtain personal feedback in a casual environment.

Proceeds from the day will be donated to the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation. Cure Brain Cancer Foundation is driving the national research agenda for brain cancer. As the largest dedicated fundraiser for brain cancer research in Australia, they mobilise communities, advocate to government and raise awareness. Their mission is to increase five-year survival to 50% within 10 years.
