LoveYerGuts Day | Friday 31 May 2019

 Campaign Image - Gut

14 kiwis are diagnosed with a Gastro-Intestinal (GI) Cancer every day. That’s over 5,000 kiwis every year, making GI Cancers the most common type of cancer in New Zealand. And sadly, over 50% of those diagnosed will die within 5 years of receiving their diagnosis.

A balanced lifestyle including a healthy diet and regular exercise can reduce your risk of cancer. So why not start now?

Complete 14 gut crunches every day in May and help us raise $100,000 to fund vital clinical research and trials to help improve the outcomes for the 14 kiwis diagnosed with a GI Cancer today, tomorrow and every day.

Challenge yourself, create a team at work, the gym, or just get your friends and family together and keep each other motivated to complete the challenge of 14 gut crunches every day.

Volunteer and become a local champion in your community. Set up a bucket collection on May 31st LoveYerGuts day or ask you local school to have a day wearing orange with a gold coin donation.
