Go Dry this July for Bendigo Health

Receiving a cancer diagnosis is devastating for a patient. At Bendigo Health we believe that living in a regional area should not contribute further to this challenge.

In conjunction with our world class Cancer Centre, our dedicated Gobbé Wellness Centre and Cancer Wellness Program aim to support our patients’ emotional and physical wellbeing, helping to reduce some of the burden of the disease by offering programs that extend beyond traditional medical treatment.

Your pledge to go Dry this July will help raise vital funds for Bendigo Health’s Cancer Centre Wellness Program and the range of programs on offer.

Bendigo Health’s Cancer Wellness Program incorporates oncology massage, cancer rehabilitation, yoga, meditation, music and pet therapy and importantly a Cancer Wellness Coordinator to connect our patients to the services that best meets their physical and emotional needs.

You can help by raising funds for Bendigo Health this Dry July so that we can continue to offer these valuable services to our local and regional patients.

Golden Tickets

If you have a special occasion in July, you can always buy a Golden Ticket. A Golden Ticket gives a Dry July participant a night off their challenge. For a minimum $25 donation, even a night off can still make a difference to the lives of people affected by cancer.

Important Note

Dry July is a fundraising campaign aimed at challenging social drinkers to change their habits for a month and make some healthy lifestyle changes. We would encourage people to drink responsibly and stick to the recommended daily guidelines for the rest of the year. We advise heavy drinkers or people dependent on alcohol to speak with their GP before signing up to Dry July.
