WITH Ocsober officially kicking off this week, thousands of Australians are clearing their cupboards and packing away the booze for the annual month of abstinence.
Behind the nationwide campaign is Life Education which has received more than 2300 registrations so far.
But NSW Life Education CEO Jay Bacik said they are urgently calling on more Australians to commit to the challenge to lose the booze this October and help raise money for the foundation’s Life Education programs for Australian children.
“Whether it’s to lose weight, set a good example or raise money for Life Education’s drug and alcohol programs, there are plenty of reasons to give up alcohol for the month of October,” Jay Bacik said.
“And if you’re worried about not being able to enjoy a beer with the footy finals this weekend, we do have leave passes available for special occasions where you want to enjoy a celebratory drink,” he said.
This year, Life Education is aiming to raise $1,000,000 for its educational programs which reach children across Australia, empowering them to make better choices and lead healthier and safer lives.
It’s not too late to register yourself or a team for Ocsober.
