Cut it out and have fun this OCSOBER
This years Ocsober ambassadors have been announced with the 2012 campaign spearheaded nationally by Australian cricket captain, Michael Clarke, Nine Network Entertainment Editor, Richard Wilkins, popular TV personality Natalie Gruzlewski and Cricket and Soccer International player Ellyse Perry.
A number of new national ambassadors have also recently signed up to support the fundraising initiative including 2011 Masterchef Winner Kate Bracks , Blake Worrall-Thompson Eat Yourself Sexy Host, Nathan Jolliffe from Celebrity Apprentice, Tom Wren and Sarah Grace from Winners and Losers, and Polly and Waz from The Block. Other prominent ambassadors include Olympian Chantelle Newbery, celebrity nutritionists Lola Berry and Zoe Bingley-Pullin, Miss Earth Australia Deedee Z, and Ten News Presenter Natarsha Belling.
The high profile group is encouraging adults across Australia to cut out alcohol for the month of October in order to raise $750,000 for Life Education. With the support of their iconic giraffe mascot Healthy Harold, these funds will allow the charity to continue to deliver vital health and drug education to 650,000 children throughout Australia, empowering children and young people to make safe and healthy choices for life through the programs delivered in schools.
The key message the charity is promoting this year is Cut it Out. And have Fun this Ocsober. The campaign will highlight the many positive messages associated with Ocsober, from urgently raising funds for Australias kids, through to the health and lifestyle benefits such as feeling healthier, losing weight and having more time to enjoy with family and friends.
Influential support for the campaign has also come from a range of other popular media and TV personalities including Good Health Editor Catherine Marshall, Madison Editor Lizzie Renkert, House and Garden Editor Lisa Green, and Sunrise Host Melissa Doyle.
Registrations are now open and adults across Australia are being encouraged to sign up now. Once registered, they will have their own fundraising page and can easily direct friends and family to sponsor them online.
