Creating an ocean of hope for Central Coast cancer patients and their families
MAJOR SPONSOR: – CROWNE PLAZA TERRIGAL
The Daffodil Dip will take place again on Easter Saturday for the 2nd year, in partnership with the Terrigal Ocean Swim Classic and Terrigal Surf Life Saving Club.
The Terrigal Ocean Swim Classic is a long running community event which features a 1km & 2km swim around Terrigal Beach. Last year, for the first time, Cancer Council NSW and Terrigal Surf Life Saving Club partnered to bring The Daffodil Dip to life! The Daffodil Dip is a 400-metre dip, paddle, or swim 400m around the ‘goldie’ buoy, or non-swimmers can happily wade in the safety zone and still be a part of the visual.
The Daffodil is the symbol of hope, and each Dipper will wear a vintage yellow swim cap and help us create an ocean of hope for cancer patients with a vision of bright yellow daffodil caps across Terrigal beach.
Jaynie Moloney of Cancer Council NSW says “We had over 300 people participating in our first event last year, raising over $21,000 and creating a visual warm hug across Terrigal Beach and letting local cancer patients know that they are not alone, it was pretty special”.
Every dollar raised will help Cancer Council NSW invest in ground-breaking cancer research, empower people to reduce their own risk with prevention education and provide essential support to everyone affected by cancer.
Jaynie says “It isn’t every day that we see 2 not-for-profit organisations partnering to bring the community together, and we’re just so grateful that we were able to partner with Terrigal Surf Life Saving to bring this event to the Central Coast community”.
