:: OCSOBER - Cut out Alcohol for our kids this October
By: Carmine Pascuzzi
Celebrity and sporting personalities from Victoria are throwing their support behind Ocsober, and encouraging adults across the state to cut out alcohol for the month of October for a good cause.
Australian photographer, media personality and mum of three daughters, Alex Fevola is the Victorian Ambassador for this year’s Ocsober campaign, which aims to raise $750,000 for Life Education. Andrew Gaze, Dr John Tickell, Nick Bracks, Matthew Richardson, Sam Clark, Russell Mark and Paul O’Brien will also be supporting Ocsober this year. The money will enable Life Education, with the support of their iconic giraffe mascot Healthy Harold, to continue to deliver health, drug and alcohol education programs in schools across Victoria and Australia.
The campaign is being spearheaded nationally by Australian Cricket Captain, Michael Clarke, celebrity trainer Michelle Bridges and TV personality, Natalie Gruzlewski. In addition to highlighting the growing dangers of alcohol abuse and binge drinking, the campaign promotes the health and lifestyle benefits of eliminating alcohol for a month.
Adults across Victoria are being encouraged to register for Ocsober and cut out alcohol this October. Once registered, they will have their own fundraising page and can easily direct friends and family to sponsor them online. Participants can also purchase a special ‘Leave Pass’ for celebratory occasions in October.
