To the average person, Hollie Fielder is the picture of health. She runs her own personal training business and is passionate about helping others on their road to wellness.
But Hollie’s not your average Aussie fitness buff.
Alexandra considered herself to be a healthy person.
She continued to play team sports well into her 20s and when she reached her 30s she became a regular walker, enjoyed jogging occasionally and after each child attended a boot camp to get back into shape.
As someone who loved fruit and vegetables, Alexandra also found it easy to eat well.
We can’t change some bowel cancer risk factors such as genetic makeup, family history or increasing age, but there are choices we can make and steps we can take to lower our risk of developing bowel and other cancers.
That is the finding of the latest World Cancer Research Fund (WCRF) released this month.
The fifth annual Meat Free Week awareness and fundraising campaign starts today, challenging participants to give up meat for seven days and raise funds for a great cause.
As a proud health partner of Meat Free Week since 2014, Bowel Cancer Australia is pleased to continue supporting this dynamic campaign that motivates action.
Going meat free for one week creates a great opportunity to start thinking about how much meat you eat and the impact eating too much meat can have.
In recognition of excellence in commitment and success in our health focused mission, Bowel Cancer Australia was awarded NGO of the Year at the 2017 PRIME Awards in Sydney, Thursday night.
Nomination and selection of a winner for NGO of the Year was made by members of the healthcare industry, who gather annually to recognise the best and most effective work in Australian healthcare and pharmaceuticals.
