For Illawarra Coal, bowel cancer is a condition that affects many of their community members yet does not receive enough attention. So, this Bowel Cancer Awareness Month they decided to do something about it.
The team at Illawarra Coal first approached Bowel Cancer Australia to hold some Get Your Rear in Gear presentations both onsite at their coal mines as well as at Head Office. During Bowel Cancer Awareness Month they organised health sessions, and offered health checks and provided a seminar on bowel cancer awareness and healthy lifestyles. The team also raised funds and awareness by selling Bowel Cancer Australia ribbons and by hosting a a morning tea on Red Apple Day.
