Create your Red Apple Day online fundraising page as an individual or a team now.
Red Apple Day (Wednesday, 16 June 2021) is Bowel Cancer Australia’s Annual Giving Day, when Australians are encouraged to support the vital work of the charity.
If you’ve ever thought about raising funds and awareness for bowel cancer, then Red Apple Day is the time to do it!
Host an apple themed virtual brunch, morning or afternoon tea, dinner or evening catch-up.
Bowel Cancer Australia’s apple logo is symbolic of the charity’s bowel cancer message: bowel cancer is treatable and beatable if detected early.
The outline of Bowel Cancer Australia’s apple logo appears as an abstract of a human bowel. The small hole in the apple is caused by a worm. If detected early and removed, the worm is unable to continue affecting the apple or the health of the tree.
It’s the same with people. If bowel cancer is detected early it can be successfully treated, which means patients and their families can continue to enjoy a healthy life.
Both red and green apples are also a nutritious source of dietary fibre.
