Physiotherapy and sports medicine hub, Coast Sport, will host a Breakfast for Bowel Cancer event, on June 20, in support of Red Apple Day.
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, Ms Ali Redman, is highly passionate about this topic and will be delivering an interactive presentation, during the breakfast event, on the impact of bowel cancer, the modifiable risk factors (mainly diet related), and the importance of early detection.
Ms Redman will also be preparing a breakfast full of delicious and nutritious food and will be demonstrating how guests can do 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.
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 G’s, and there will also be prizes on offer from Central Coast Mariners, Remedy Kombucha and more.
