Go Dry this July

You can help people affected by cancer in Canberra and the surrounding region.

The Canberra Hospital Foundation has been a proud beneficiary of Dry July campaign since 2009, with funds raised through the initiative supporting patients and their families at the Canberra Region Cancer Centre. Our adult patients living with cancer have gained so much from previous campaign funding, and we are so grateful for the community support!

We invite you to go Dry this July and help us continue to raise funds for this important cause.

So, what is Dry July?

Dry July is a fundraiser that encourages you to go alcohol-free in July to raise funds for people affected by cancer. The Dry July Foundation acknowledges that 2020 has been challenging, and they've therefore introduced new options for Dry July. They're calling it Dry(ish) July. You can now choose to go 14 or 21 days alcohol-free! No matter how long you choose to go dry for, you'll still be raising vital funds for people affected by cancer, who need your support now, more than ever.

Is alcohol not your thing normally? That's okay! Why not try giving up another vice - coffee, chocolate or anything of your choice.

In 2020, through Dry July, we are raising funds for:

• Uplift our Linanc area with art murals
• Blanket warmer
• Two massage chairs, as well as the ongoing provision of;
• Our Therapeutic Harp program,
• Our hospitality trolley providing refreshments for our patients, and;
• Floral arrangements at reception desks within the Centre.

We can't do it without you though!
