The Turtle Squad

Our Story

We're taking part in The March Charge with Cancer Council and telling cancer where to go! Sadly cancer still takes too many of us. Research sees more people than ever survive but we’ve still a way to go. And I need your help to beat cancer. It’s going to be a challenge, but it’s nothing compared to those who experience cancer. Please sponsor our team today to support my challenge and join me in telling cancer where to go! Your donation will help our local Cancer Council support those affected right now and fund world changing research to help more people survive. Thank you for your support.

Team Updates

Thanks in advance

Hi there,

If you're reading this message, you have either donated, or are interested in donating, or have joined (or want to join!) the Turtle team to help with donations towards such a worthy cause. What I hope for in time is that the smart people out there (the scientists, professors, doctors etc) find a cure for cancer that does not involve chemotherapy. If there is anything worse than cancer, it's got to be the chemo. The chemo kills off everything, good or bad, and even though it does have an effect on some cancers, it draws the life out of every person going through it. Basically there is very little to no quality of life for the cancer sufferers while they are having chemo.

My 38 year old brother is battling cancer at the moment, so I am seeing first hand how awful it is. I mostly feel useless, because I can't do anything to make him feel better, or to take the cancer away, but I can do something to raise money and awareness.

Thank you in advance for considering donating or joining the team to spread awareness. There is no pressure to run if you join the team! It's about getting the word out there, and keeping your own fitness up.

Lots of love your way!

Jess kiss
