Rachel Mason has supported and raised money for a number of different causes over the years, one of them being Dry July.
Ms Mason, who has recently started her new role as part of the fundraising team for the Bendigo Health Foundation, has opted to give up alcohol to raise money for Bendigo Health and their patients and families affected by cancer.
“Our involvement with Dry July aligns so well as it aims to raise funds to improve the wellbeing of people affected by cancer and awareness of drinking habits and the value of a balanced, healthy lifestyle,” Ms Mason said.
The money that has been raised through Dry July has and will be put towards a number of projects around Bendigo Health.
“[Dry July fundraising] has resulted in the purchase of specialised medical equipment and projects such as the refurbishment of Bendigo Health’s Nolan Street patient accommodation, used by patients that have to travel long distances to receive treatment,” Ms Mason said.
From 2013 until now, Dry July has raised approximately $324,652 for Bendigo Health.
As well as Dry July, Ms Mason has been part of fundraisers such as the Little Blue Towel, OTIS’ Tuscan Adventure and a Mother’s Day luncheon as part of her past job as general manager at the OTIS Foundation.
