Thanks to you, we're one step closer to a cancer free future!
1 in 2 Australian's will be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85. Your support will help us change this terrible statistic.
Every dollar raised will help Cancer Council SA invest in ground-breaking cancer research, empower people to reduce their own risk with prevention education, and provide essential support to everyone impacted by cancer.
Today, you can help Cancer Council SA work towards a cancer free future by supporting me in the Marilyn Jetty Swim. It is sure to be an unforgettable challenge that I will remember forever.
Thank you for your support
Before …Sunday 5th Feb
Yep, it happenedSunday 5th Feb Goals smashed! Thanks to you all!! Over 500 of us gathered at Brighton this morning and together paddled, belly flopped and belly laughed around the jetty. Over $220K raised for Cancer Council SA … and counting. I felt so self conscious walking to the check in, but it was so easy to get into the spirit when you realised you were totally anonymous in the sea of blonde wigs and loveheart sunnies! I found some old friends and made some new ones, and all I can do is recommend anyone out there who’s kinda thinking about it - do it! Now that Sarah has hit her goal of raising $1M in her mother’s memory, the next goal is to have enough Marilyns in the water TO BE SEEN FROM SPACE. So all welcome! Thanks again for your amazing support, I’ll post some pics as promised 💋👍🥰 Share
I know it’s not a competition…Wednesday 25th Jan But you all know that I’m highly competitive!!! Which is why I LOVE that you have all pushed me to No. 3 on the individual fundraising leader board … let’s see how this thing ends! Thank you all so much for getting behind Cancer Council SA 💋👏🤩 Share
I knew I could rely on you excellent people!Sunday 22nd Jan Fundraising is awkward - asking people to part with their hard earned, especially given the eyebrow raising experiences we are all having at the supermarket checkouts, for no reward other than having done a good thing, feels weird. But all you can do is ask, and I am so inspired by your answers - thank you all so much. I was inspired enough to do 70 laps of our pool yesterday arvo (breaststroke, and our pool being around 8m long - so I’m not exactly preparing to hit the English Channel, but it was a tough enough workout). This year is the 10th Marilyn Brighton Jetty swim event, and we’re hoping to hit the $1M fundraising milestone - thanks so much again for playing your part. Two weeks to go 😁👍 Share
It’s the little things that count …Friday 23rd Dec I’m hoping that making an idiot of myself by dog paddling around the Brighton Jetty in a wig and glasses is a little thing that I can do to both get a laugh and help someone with cancer. Cancer sucks for so many people in such a big way. It is overwhelming. The Cancer Council has for decades been doing millions of little (and big) things to help South Australians and their families through a cancer diagnosis, like providing trusted information and advice, a welcome place to stay while receiving treatment, and supporting research breakthroughs. Any little thing you can donate does count ❤️ Share

From the mouth of the great MM herself "I don’t want to make money, I just want to be wonderful." I suspect you’ll do both xxx

Go you good thing, LB!! Forget the jetty swim- I’m cheering you on even for the 70 backyard laps- That’s 68 more than I could do! F$@# cancer!
A great idea Byers, and a cause worthy of support
Go you awesome thing- enjoy the day!
Some Like It Hot
I have to confess I’ve read a number of Norma Jean biographies written by ex boyfriends (and people who pretended to have been). She was a swimmer.
Good luck Luci! Not only will you smash it, but I know you will look fabulous whilst doing so xx
