Has your life been touched by cancer?
Has your life been touched by cancer?

Did you know that by following a healthy lifestyle, by engaging in physical activity every day, eating a health diet and maintaining a healthy body weight, one third of cancers can be prevented?

As the only organisation in South Australia that works across every area of cancer, the Cancer Council SA engages in research to find cancer breakthroughs, raises awareness about the benefits of screening and early detection, provides support services to reduce the practical and emotional impact of cancer and advocates to government to provide support.

In order to do this, they need your support. Take up the Charge this March by setting yourself a challenge to walk, run, swim or cycle and raise funds. Charge anywhere, anytime and any how you like. Go in the morning, at lunch or after work. It's your charge and your choice.

To formally participate you will need to register to take the Charge and by doing so and registering before 4 March, you can earn Qantas Points via the Qantas Assure app. When you register you will be asked to set your fundraising target, set your kilometre target and then get ready to start.

Once you have registered, it is time to promote your participation, enlist support and seek donations by sharing your personal fundraising page URL with your networks, friends and family. Then on 1 March, it is time to start Charging.

You can go solo or get your family, friends or colleagues together and tell cancer where to go as a team. Create a team to keep the motivation going and help each other along. You can create your own team or you can join an existing team.

Track your Charge using your fitness wristband or watch (Garmin, Fitbit etc). Strava, Fitbit and mapmyfitness apps will automatically sync with your fundraising page, making it easy to keep track of your activity. You can also manually add your activity through the My Fitness Activity tab.

If the thought of a challenge motivates you, the website has a leaderboard so you can challenge yourself or your team against others for fundraising or kilometre goals.
Take the challenge and join the March Charge now for fun, fitness and a great cause. I have!
