The Beacon June FY22



In April, Peta Dunlop and her dad Trevor shaved their heads (and his beard) to support Australians affected by breast cancer, having known six women who have been diagnosed with the disease. Thanks to the incredible support of the Mooroopna (VIC) community, Peta and Trevor successfully raised $6,118.50 for BCNA . To find out how you can support BCNA through your own personal challenge, please contact us on 1800 500 258 or visit the BCNA website .

From 22 to 24 April, a team of 27 cyclists cycled 400km in three days through WA’s Margaret River Region to Alliance Airlines’ Perth Airport hangar, raising over $150,000 for BCNA . A massive thank you to the Alliance Airlines team, their sponsors and event organisers Entoure as well as our local ‘ BCNA H2H Support Crew’ who came down to cheer on the team. We couldn’t have done it without you! HANGAR2HANGAR 3.0
