How 57 squats can help

BREAST cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australia – 57 Australians are diagnosed with it every day and cases are on the rise.

That is why the National Breast Cancer Foundation is calling on residents to rise to the challenge this March and complete 57 squats a day for 31 days and raise funds for life-saving breast cancer research.
Taking part in the 57 Squat Challenge, Canterbury resident Ashley Coelho said it was a way to support all the sufferers in the community including a high school friend whose family was impacted by breast cancer.
First time taking part in a fundraiser, Ashley said she came across the challenge on social media and wanted to also encourage others to get involved in the March challenge.
“I’ve been going to the gym and I’m hopeful others at the gym will join me in the challenge.

“It’s an easy way to do something good for the community, have fun and get fit at the same time,” she said.
“Every little bit of money raised helps so I will be calling on work colleagues and my wider family to support me during the challenge and I encourage others to put aside a little time every day to get involved or please make a donation; we need to find a cure for this horrific disease,” she said.
