Put your drink down and go booze-free for July
YOUR SAY: Whether your drink of choice is a beer, glass of wine, or something sweeter - it's time to put down your drink and go booze-free for the month of July to make a difference!
Cancer Council Queensland has been named a beneficiary of Dry July in 2017, with funds raised supporting more than 27,000 Queenslanders diagnosed with cancer each year.
Dry July takes a light-hearted approach to raising funds for a serious issue by challenging participants to give up booze from July 1 to 31.
By pledging to tighten the lid on alcoholic beverages and opting for a healthier option, you'll not only benefit your own health but impact the lives of those affected by cancer.
Everyone who goes booze-free will be rewarded with a great sense of achievement and improved health and wellbeing.
Why not swap alcohol for a soda water, or a cocktail for a tasty mocktail and raise funds for Queenslanders in need?
Funds raised from Dry July directly benefit Australians affected by cancer in real and tangible ways, providing funds to create better environments and support networks for patients and their families.
Every drink you give up and every dollar you raise helps ease the burden of cancer in our communities, and supporting those in a time of need.
