In a month of events to raise funds, the Stars Of Byron Shire Dance For Cancer is one of Cancer Council’s most exciting events in the area.
Three community teams of novice dancers will be showcasing their hard work and celebrating their incredible fundraising efforts.
There will also be live music and special performances from That’s My Jam, Byron Gym and Star Pole Studio.
Since its inception Stars Of Byron Shire Dance For Cancer has raised almost $95,000 for Cancer Council, a truly incredible effort by the community.
Every year in NSW alone, more than 48,000 new cases of cancer are expected to be diagnosed, and the impact on families, carers and communities is significant.
Cancer Council Far North Coast Community Relations Coordinator Hannah Nairne says the Cancer Council are committed to reducing the impact of cancer on individuals and the community. ‘We want to reduce the burden for people affected by cancer.’
The Cancer Council are the only organisation in Australia that works across every area of every cancer by: conducting and funding world-class research that underpins our work across the cancer journey; preventing cancer; supporting people as they navigate the cancer journey; and, advocating to ensure that governments take action on cancer.
Cancer Council support services aim to help those affected by cancer at every point in their journey, and over the past few years the local Byron Bay office has been working on launching new Transport to Treatment services that aim to assist people from the local area, spanning across from Ballina, Byron Bay, Alstonville, Lismore and Wardell, to get to their treatment where there are no other options.
Cancer Council believes in a cancer free future. Join them and some awesome dancers for an interactive and fun night this Friday, 6pm at Byron Theatre. Tickets are $30.
