Dydi Dreise didn’t hesitate to volunteer to raise money for this year’s Great Lakes Relay for Life, even if it meant shaving off all of her hair.
During the past handful of years Dydi Dreise has watched some family members battle off cancer.
Last week, Friday March 23 Dydi sat down in front of MidCoast Council work colleagues and bravely had her head shaved, and at the same time raised $750.
Sadly, her male colleagues aren’t quite so brave.
Dydi threw out a challenge for a male work-mate to have a leg wax – but there were no takers.
From 10am, Saturday, April 14 Dydi will be joined by hundreds of walkers from throughout the MidCoast LGA for this year’s Relay for Life at the Peter Barclay Field, Tuncurry
The event was forced to postpone the original date following last weekend’s deluge.
Lots of entertainment and activities are still planned for the weekend after the opening ceremony.
There will be plenty of music from live bands to guitar players and singers to a morning performance from Joe the Clown, a jumping castle, a demonstration from the YMCA , face painting, to a tug-of-war, Great Lakes Relay for Life committee member, Roz Dreise said.
The afternoon activities include Miss Relay, a fashion parade, an auction of some clothes from the fashion parade and lots more, she said.
The opening will be held at 10am with the face for relay, local cancer survivor Ashley Duckworth, cutting the ribbon, followed by the survivors and carers walk at 10.20am.
No need to go hungry, food and beverages will be available throughout the day with the team from Bakers’ Delight staffing the canteen.
A barbecue will offer sausages and steaks, while a team will sell cakes and muffins.
