Learn why they Charge and what it means to them.
At just 25 years old, Rebecca was diagnosed with stage IV ovarian cancer, and last year decided to take on The March Charge alongside 11 of her amazing friends from work – Everyday Independence Team Epping.
The team Charged along; walking during their lunch breaks and pacing around when on phone meetings to up their activity for each day!
"It will be challenging, as I’ve just had surgery, but I want to show that people with cancer can still thrive and participate in physical activities"
Rebecca Charged 94KMs and raised an inspiring $10,701!
September was bittersweet for Darrin. He marked five years since finishing chemotherapy for Lymphoma in 2015 but it was also the anniversary of his fathers passing from lung cancer, that same year.
Darrin and his dad were diagnosed within months of each other. Darrin decided to take on The March Charge last year, saying: “I love the fact that it's a month-long event and not just one day. I can't think of a better way to honour Dad and mark my own milestone than through this challenge."
He smashed both his goals, Charging an incredible 382KMs and raising a fantastic $1,890!
Last year was Amanda's 3rd March Charge, inspired by her mum, who passed away 10 years ago from breast cancer.
“I tore my hamstring earlier in the year, so I couldn’t up my KMs as planned but I was determined to take part again. I just remember the strength my mum had – she was such a strong lady – and it keeps me going.”
“I love seeing stories from the other Chargers, too! It’s so inspiring to see what we’re achieving and I know that together, we’ll find a cure one day.”
Amanda Charged 271 KMs and raised an amazing $847!
People around Australia are Charging this March to tell cancer where to go.
