Amber’s world rocked in September 2012 when she heard
   the words “you have breast cancer.” She was just 34
    years old. She stared at her doctors and said ‘you’re
joking’ and then laughed. Breast cancer is for women over
    50, I’m 34 there must be some mistake – only older
  women get breast cancer.’ Little did she know just how
               very untrue that statement was.
  After 5 years, Amber discovered that her breast cancer
 had spread. She says, ‘it’s tough, you don’t just get over
   cancer once treatment is over, you continue to live it,
   every single day. If anything, finishing treatment is the
 scariest thing. You’re thrown back into the real world and
     the emotional and mental strength it takes to keep
yourself out of a mentally dark place is exhausting.’ When
  Amber was asked why she is fundraising for BCNA she
told them it’s because she doesn’t want anyone to have to
 go through this journey alone ever again and BCNA can
                        help with that.

 There are two ways you can help support BCNA. It’s not
too late to start fundraising and it’s also not too late to give
  a one off donation to support all Australians affected by
                        breast cancer.

small gravel section following the aid station.

When approaching Newstead-Guildford Road from Midland HWY, the
course will now turn LEFT. However, the aid station will still be located at
John Powell Reserve approx. 500m ahead. Signage will outline the turn or
continuation to the aid station.
Please take care when returning to course from the aid station. There will be
signage to direct you. Here you will make a RIGHT hand turn back onto
