Cruise for a cause on free road trip

Isis Town and Country - - News -

THE com­pe­ti­tion for the road trip of a life­time, Dometic Fol­low the Sun 2016, has part­nered with the Na­tional Breast Can­cer Foun­da­tion to pro­vide the added in­cen­tive for en­trants to cruise in com­fort for a cause and help in the quest to raise aware­ness and save lives.

NBCF am­bas­sador and Mel­bourne mum Sarah Singer sur­vived her bat­tle with can­cer at age 32, in­spir­ing her to leave the cor­po­rate life be­hind and move the fam­ily from Lon­don to Mel­bourne for a bet­ter qual­ity of life and to re­alise her dreams.

As Ms Singer dis­cov­ered, noth­ing changes a per­son’s per­spec­tive on life more than a can­cer di­ag­no­sis and now, at age 40, she wants to be able to en­cour­age oth­ers to ful­fil their dreams, such as trav­el­ling Aus­tralia and help­ing oth­ers over­come their bat­tles.

In its third time run­ning, the Dometic Fol­low the Sun com­pe­ti­tion pro­vides the op­por­tu­nity for three cou­ples or fam­i­lies to win an ex­penses-paid, three-month trip around Aus­tralia as Dometic Am­bas­sadors, worth up to $35,000.

As part of its part­ner­ship with the NBCF, one win­ning duo will be leav­ing a trail of pink on their jour­ney, cruis­ing in com­fort in the foun­da­tion’s Pink Min­nie Car­a­van.

Trav­el­ling thou­sands of kilo­me­tres and vis­it­ing a di­verse range of des­ti­na­tions across the coun­try, the Pink Min­nie’s jour­ney will share a mes­sage of aware­ness and hope for the fu­ture for breast can­cer pa­tients to thou­sands of Aus­tralians.

Ms Singer said Fol­low the Sun was a win-win part­ner­ship.

“The lucky win­ners get to ‘live the dream’ and take the Pink Min­nie Car­a­van or their RV on a trip of a life­time and they can po­ten­tially save lives by fund­ing re­search that makes a real dif­fer­ence in the way breast can­cer is de­tected, treated and man­aged in Aus­tralia.

“To be hon­est, I wish it was me go­ing.”

En­try closes on May 8; win­ners will be no­ti­fied on June 3 and the road trip will head off from Au­gust to Oc­to­ber.
