Latest Updates

Thanks to Dry July fundraising, Look Good Feel Better NZ are kicking off their confidence building classes in Hamilton

The first Look Good Feel Better NZ community class of 2021 starts this week in beautiful Hamilton.

Look Good Feel Better NZ are thrilled to have a full class of wonderful ladies who will learn practical tips, tools and techniques to feel more like their normal selves to be able to face every day with more confidence.

In the words of a recent participant:

"Very good confidence building for me as it was my first time with other cancer sufferers. The facilitator was professional, friendly and knowledgeable. The volunteers were lovely, helpful, and put you at ease. Wow, the products we received were incredible! Thank you to all donors. I would certainly recommend cancer patients attend as it helped rebuild my confidence while on my journey."

Look Good Feel Better classes are FREE and for any person, with any cancer, at any stage. You do not have to be referred by a medical professional, you do not have to be suffering from hair loss or be in active treatment. Everyone is welcome.

Look Good Feel Better NZ classes provide you with an opportunity to learn while connecting with others for mutual support and understanding.

Prost-Fit classes have been supported across New Zealand thanks to Dry July fundraising

Currently running in multiple locations across New Zealand, Prost-FIT exercise programme is designed specifically for men who have been diagnosed with and/or treated for prostate cancer. Research has shown there are significant benefits gained from exercise that may both assist with recovery and delay the advance of the disease. 

Prost-FIT is accredited by the Prostate Cancer Foundation NZ (PCFNZ) and delivered by trained registered exercise professionals.

Alongside the original Prost-Fit class available in Christchurch, your Dry July fundraising has contributed to the launch of Prost-FIT in two locations in Auckland, one in the Tauranga area, and New Plymouth is just about ready to go! 

PCFNZ has more locations in the pipeline for early next year - how great is that!

Look Good Feel Better face-to-face workshops back up and running across New Zealand

Excitingly, Look Good Feel Better have been able to re-introduce their face-to-face workshops!

Since October, they have run over 100 in-person community classes, and live classes are still available for men and women across New Zealand. 

This wouldn't be possible without the fantastic efforts of Dry July participants and donors.  

Pinc & Steel and Bowel Cancer New Zealand partner thanks to Dry July fundraising

Bowel Cancer New Zealand has partnered with Pinc & Steel NZ to help support Kiwis living with bowel cancer by providing financial assistance to attend cancer rehabilitation programs each year.

Bowel Cancer New Zealand has already helped 7 people affected by bowel cancer to attend Pinc & Steel's exercise rehabilitation programs, and intends to fund many more.

This is only possible thanks to the funds raised by our incredible Dry July 2020 participants - thank you!
