St Rita's 2021

Ponytail Project 2021 QLD

We're rocking the chop to put a stop to cancer!

Did you know that 1 in 2 Australians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime?

We're taking part in Cancer Council’s Ponytail Project campaign to raise funds that will support people impacted by cancer.

Throughout the year, we will be growing my hair as long as possible, alongside peers all across Australia, before chopping off my ponytail and rocking a brand new hairdo. Every ponytail chopped will make a difference to the lives of people affected by cancer #chopforchange.

All funds raised will go towards essential cancer support services, prevention programs and lifesaving research. This means everything from transport to get cancer patients to and from their medical appointments, to assisting childcare facilities to keep kids safe from the sun.

We know that we can help create change.

Will you support us?

You can find out more about where your donations go at ponytailproject.com.au/about-cancer-council

Thank you!
