How you can make an impact on cancer

1. Change your lifestyle

Research shows that improving your diet, exercising more, and giving up smoking (it’s never too late) can decrease your risk of cancer. Your waistline can also affect your cancer risk as well.

2. Ride your bike

Think of it as a history-making opportunity for you to do something big about cancer, something epic (and also an opportunity to help with that exercising thing above). The Rio Tinto Ride to Conquer Cancer is an annual cycling event to raise money for cancer research at QIMR. Riders cycle for two days in August 2013 through the picturesque countryside of Queensland.

Even if you aren’t in Brisbane, you can still conquer cancer by riding. There are Rides in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. Find out more or register to ride here.

3. Walk for women’s cancer

The Weekend to End Women’s Cancers  is a weekend you’ll never forget. It’s a Weekend to remember those lives we have lost to breast or gynaecological cancer and a Weekend to celebrate the lives we are saving. Proceeds from The Weekend will support groundbreaking, critical cancer research at QIMR.

Your funds will also help Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, home of Queensland’s largest cancer care service, purchase vital pieces of equipment and fund world-class clinical research conducted at the hospital.
