What is Frocktober?
Throughout October, the Frocktober campaign invites women to band together, don their most darling dresses and have a bit of fun while raising funds for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation
- Did you know that there is currently no early detection test for ovarian cancer?
- Did you know that in Australia alone, one woman dies every 10 hours from ovarian cancer?
Frocktober empowers women of all backgrounds, lifestyles and fabulous fashion senses to support a common cause: ovarian cancer research. It’s a chance to connect with like-minded women, share personal experiences, and play a pivotal role in the journey towards an early detection test for ovarian cancer.
Frocktober is an opportunity to:
• Celebrate your own style
• Appreciate the joy in life and make the most of it
• Contribute to an important cause affecting women
For a day, a week or the whole month, something as simple as the clothes you wear can start important conversations, raising awareness of the lack of early detection test and of how we as a community can do more to support ovarian cancer research.
How do I get involved?
You can now register as a Frocktober fundraiser for just $25 at www.frocktober.org.au. This year the OCRF has exciting new support packs to help you with your fundraising efforts.
There is also the opportunity to upgrade to the Premium Frocktober Supporter Pack for $65, which includes:
• An exclusive Review Gift Card to the value of $50 for the first 500 registrations
• Exclusive GO-TO cosmetics for the first 500 registrations
• Frocktober drink bottle
I’ll be sharing my Frocktober Style regularly on the blog and also on Instagram and I’ve got something a little special planned – so keep your eyes peeled.
Please make a donation to this worthy cause as ovarian cancer needs all the funding it can get! Every dollar counts – I’d love it if anyone reading this would donate just $1 as even this will make a difference in helping fund urgent and necessary research into this insidious disease.
This cause is close to my heart after losing my friend and sister-in-law Penny 3 years ago only a few months after she was diagnosed, it was too late.
I look forward to following your Frocktober journey for 2017 and sharing mine on #Frocktober2017!
