Townsville local Matthew Dunn is looking to better his last Ocsober effort. Last year, Matthew raised $1500. This year he's hoping to reach the $2000 mark.
This is what Matthew recently told the Townsville Bulletin about his reasons for doing Ocsober again this year:
"I?'ve always been a relatively fit and active person.
For a the most part of my life I have played rugby league and have also had stints in touch footy, road running, cycling, triathlons and squash.
My latest fix comes from hitting the weights and I have stuck to a strict regimen of working out six days a week.
While I have seen some amazing progress in recent months, my love of the bottle hinders my full potential.
Don’t get me wrong, I am far from a raging alcoholic, but I do find solace in weekend binge.
Knowing that from time to time I should take a break from the party life, I make sure to participate in the annual Ocsober fundraiser.
Having participated for the past two years, I have witnessed first-hand how rewarding a month off the drink can be to both my fitness and bank account.
Not only does the challenge help me shed unwanted kilos, but it helps raise funds that will be used to empower Australian children to make healthier and safer choices as they grow up."
Ocsober is wrapping up in just a few days, but it's not too late to donate.
