Join us for the World’s Greatest Shave at PARC!

World’s Greatest Shave – Friday 20 May 

Visit us Friday 20 May between 10am-12pm and help us raise important funds for the Leukaemia Foundation! 

The Leukaemia Foundation gives hope to and support to the 110,000 Aussie families that are currently facing blood cancer, and the funds we raise will provide precious relief to those who need it most. 

This is cause that is very special to our PARC family, as we honour Sam Newman, a PARC employee that sadly passed in away in April of 2017, after being diagnosed with Sever Aplastic Anaemia.  

Sam’s brave son, Deagan Newman, will be leading the way this year, and will be shaving his head to help raise money for the organisation that helped support his family when his Dad was diagnosed. 

How can you help us raise money? 

  1. Come along and get your head shaved for $20!
  2. Don’t want to commit to a full shave? No worries! You can also get your hair braided or coloured for $5. 
  3. Buy a delicious morning tea from the Café for $5 – all proceeds donated. 
  4. Buy a raffle ticket for $2 or 3 tickets for $5. There are awesome prizes to be won! 
  5. Buy a coffee from the Café anytime on Friday 20 May and $1 from every coffee will be donated.  
  6. Buy a snag from the BBQ outside for $2 (until sold out).
  7. Donate by clicking on the link – any amount is greatly appreciated! http://my.leukaemiafoundation.org.au/peninsulaleisure3199 

All funds will go directly to the Leukeumia Foundation.  

We look forward to seeing you there!

This week is Men’s Health Week, an important time in the year to raise awareness in preventable health issues in men and encourage the early detection and treatment of diseases amongst men and boys. 

With only 27% of men being active enough to stay healthy, it's important to prioritise your health and get movement into your day. 

To help raise awareness for the week, we interviewed Mark. One of our very dedicated members of PARC who has gone through his own journey to become active and healthy in his life. We spoke about the start to his health journey, his relationship with the PARC community and why he thinks that men's health is so important.

To read our blog interview with Mark head to the link in our bio.
