Frocktober is Australia's most fashionable October month-long fundraiser created by the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF) to raise awareness and funds for vital ovarian cancer research. All funds raised are donated directly to the OCRF, so potentially life-saving research ovarian cancer projects can be funded. To learn more about the OCRF and their work, visit the website . Currently one Australian dies every 8 hours from ovarian cancer. There is no early detection test, and by the time it's diagnosed it's in its advanced stages. It is Australia's most lethal gynaecological cancer that takes more than 1000 lives each year. Frocktober October allows you to support a common cause: ovarian cancer research, in a fun way. Register for Frocktober here! Get involved and sign up today for all the lives that have, and will be cut short by ovarian cancer.

You can make a difference amidst this doom and gloom; and you don't have to do it alone. Get family, friends, community and colleagues involved. There are many ways you can make it fun to support this worthy cause. Here are a few ideas to consider . 1) Let your colleagues know you're raising funds for a very good cause and turn your workplace into a fashion-forward hub on Fridays in October. Encourage everyone to wear their most 'out there' looks, and have some fun selfies to post on social media, alerting everyone about Frockober at the same time. 2) Host an event - a chic frocktail party, elegant gala dinner, high tea or fun-filled Frocktoberfest. The possibilities are as endless as your imagination. Collaborate with local businesses, sponsors and volunteers to make the event a success!

3) A Bake Sale has been raising funds throughout the ages, so don't underestimate the power of one. Host a bake sale to raise funds for the OCRF. 4) Dress up your pets in adorable frocks and start a conversation about ovarian cancer, perhaps on your evening walk at the dog park. 5) Frock up by choosing sustainable but stylish fashion choices with preloved clothing. Gather your friends and invite them to bring clothes in good condition they no longer wear and have a clothes swap party. Or have a parade of sustainable fashion choices where everyone puts together their best edgy look wearing only items bought at the op shop. There's no doubt you can come up with many more ideas, whether you choose to wear 31 different dresses in 31 days or choose a few dresses to style differently in 31 days; this is the all-in challenge for the Super Frockers.
