The Cherish Women’s Cancer Foundation is putting the call out to the people of Brisbane ahead of their annual beach volleyball fundraiser, The Battle.

For the sixth year running, The Battle will see teams from across Brisbane hit the sand for a friendly beach volleyball tournament.

Hosted by Olympic beach volleyball gold medallist, Natalie Cook, The Battle will raise much-needed funds to research more targeted, effective and less invasive treatments for gynaecological cancer sufferers.

People of all ages can register a team (of five to eight people) in the tournament, and pledge to raise a minimum of $750 for Cherish. No beach volleyball experience is required.

You’ll also be able to enjoy delicious BBQ fare, and stick around for a celebratory drink or two after the presentations.

More than 5,500 Australian women are diagnosed with gynaecological cancer every year, and 1,000 of those women are in Queensland. The grim reality is that one in three of these women will not survive.

The Battle is for them.

The Battle will be held at Sandstorm Beach Club (Queensland Sport & Athletics Centre, 590 Mains Road, Nathan) from 5pm on Friday 17 March. For more information on how to register your team, visit
