Judith's Legacy

After losing his wife and the love of his life, Judith, to ovarian cancer in 2017, Dean Rowe has dedicated his days to raising funds for Cancer Council SA in her honour. Each year in February, Dean celebrates his late wife’s memory with his local community, friends and family through ‘Judith’s Walk’—a 6km walk along the Shiraz Trail in Willunga. In the lead up to the walk, Dean organises many other fundraising events as part of ‘Judith’s Legacy’ with the hopes of raising funds to find better ways to detect and live beyond ovarian cancer.

Fiona Pike Skin Cancer Awareness Campaign

The Fiona Pike Skin Cancer Awareness Campaign is the legacy of professional golfer Fiona Pike, who in 2005 was diagnosed with melanoma. The Campaign is dedicated to encouraging all golfers and sporting enthusiasts to take the lifesaving steps to properly protect their skin and to check their skin every three months.

The Fiona Pike Skin Cancer Awareness in recent years has worked in partnership with the ALPG to raise skin cancer awareness and funds for Cancer Council at ALPG events. For more information about ALPG events please visit: www.alpg.com.au.
