Bondi Surf Club — In a display

Bondi Surf Club — In a display of community strength and commitment to sun damage prevention, Bondi Surf Club proudly announces the outstanding results of our recent 10-day skin health activation, made possible through the collective efforts of 1545 participants. United with La Roche-Posay and our dedicated skin check champions, the event has left an indelible mark on the well-being of our community.
Achievements at a Glance:
1545 Skin Checks: An impressive number of individuals prioritized their health by participating in thorough skin checks.
1709 Suspect Spots Found: Vigilance paid off as a substantial number of potentially harmful spots were identified and brought to attention.
25 Melanoma Cases Detected: Early detection is the key to successful treatment, and this event played a crucial role in identifying and addressing melanoma cases promptly.
130 Non-Melanoma Skin Cancers Uncovered: The proactive approach adopted during the activation led to the discovery and subsequent management of various non-melanoma skin cancers.
62,000 Sunscreen Samples Distributed: As a sun-soaked community, it warms our hearts to know that 62,000 individuals are now armed with the means to protect themselves from harmful UV rays.

Bondi Surf Club extends its heartfelt gratitude to everyone who participated, making this initiative a resounding success. The collaboration with La Roche-Posay and our dedicated skin check champions exemplifies the power of unity in fostering a healthier community.
Community Well-being Matters:
At Bondi Surf Club, we view our community as an extended family, and events like these hold special significance. Your health is invaluable to us, and we are here to support you every step of the way. Together, we create an environment where everyone can thrive.

#WOMENINPOWERCRAFT Bondi Surf

#WOMENINPOWERCRAFT
Bondi Surf Club is very excited to be hosting the SLSA Powercraft Training for Women in Lifesaving program.

For several years there has been a shortage of IRB Crew and Drivers within the SLSA membership, and many solutions and suggestions have been offered to alleviate this. There is also a significant underrepresentation of women who
hold these Powercraft awards (see below table).

We are looking for females aged 15 to 20 years to do their IRB Crew award in a specifically designed, women only training course, supported by SLSA.

The power of women training together is huge, and participants will be part of a supportive group of like-minded members who will assist each other through the course and become champions for each other ongoing.

If you are Proficient in your Bronze Medallion, female, 15 – 20 years and willing to dedicate yourself fully to the Program for the duration please fill in the form below.
All details and dates outlined in the form.
Course is starting on 8th December 2023.

This is open to other clubs membership to apply.

Any Questions Please reach out to Nixy Krite pinkpatrol@bondisurfclub.com
