Women turn out to can­cer fundraiser

Gatton Star - - Life -

IT­WAS strictly a no boys al­lowed zone at Curves on Satur­day night, as girls turned out to pamper them­selves dur­ing the an­nual Girls’ Night In.

The Curves gym had a colour­ful mar­ket at­mos­phere, filled with an ar­ray of stall­hold­ers and food as at­ten­dees roamed and so­cialised.

The sixth an­nual Girls’ Night In was more than just a great night out, with the event held to raise much­needed funds to­wards breast can­cer re­search.

A raf­fle of more than 70 items on the night helped the cause.

Owner of Curves Gat­ton Mia Stege­man said the night was a huge suc­cess.

“I think that each year some­one in Curves is af­fected some­how by breast can­cer and it’s on the rise,” Ms Stege­man said.

“Two mem­bers were di­ag­nosed this year and it’s show­ing sup­port.

“We are a fam­ily here and any­thing we can do to help any­one we’ll do it.

“And we want to find a cure for it and rais­ing money will help do that.”

Ms Stege­man said Curves mem­bers were gear­ing up to en­ter the Bust a Move for Breast Health fundraiser in Bris­bane in March next year, and hoped to raise $1000 for each mem­ber in the team.
