Fundraising can be difficult, but even more so in this new world of COVID-19.

Many social fundraisers have had to be cancelled, but with restrictions easing, a new team in the Cancer Council’s Relay for Life, Dare to Dream, is determined to keep the fight against cancer alive. Dare to Dream teammates came together as health industry colleagues, friends and family.

All have been touched by cancer in one way or another.

Their team captain, Dianne “Grandma” Grima, wants everyone to remember having hair is a choice few cancer patients get.

Phase one of the team’s campaign saw Shampers at Three create Grandma’s multicoloured curly coif, which has been turning heads.

Grandma will keep her fancy “do” as she encourages donations to Relay for Life.

Her efforts will culminate on Sunday, August 30, between 10.30am and 1pm on the foreshore near Dome, when her hair is shaven to the scalp.

To support the initiative, search for Relay for Life Cancer Council WA online.

Any amount over $2 is tax-deductible.

The Relay for Life will take place at GBSC Sports Park in Spalding on Saturday, October 17.
