Cottonsoft move their butt for Bowel Cancer New Zealand

Bowel Cancer Awareness Month is an annual initiative of Bowel Cancer NZ running annually in June to raise public awareness of a disease that claims the lives of 100 New Zealanders every month. June is also when this fantastic charity raises funds so they can keep continue to work to reduce the impact of bowel cancer in this country through lifesaving awareness, education, advocacy, research and support.

CottonSofts have been a key sponsor of BCNZ for over 10 years now, and are proud to again support this year’s MOVE YOUR BUTT challenge. Last year as a team we ran, rowed, walked and more to raise over $10000 for Move your Butt and this year we are going even further to support and raise awareness of this devastating disease.

CottonSofts are the first brand of toilet paper in New Zealand to print bowel cancer symptoms on their packaging. The aim of this is to encourage Kiwis not to sit on their symptoms, but to get them checked out if they have any. Additionally, bespoke packaging was specially created to encourage Kiwis to participate or support the Move Your Butt Campaign.

Also, every purchase of a CottonSofts bespoke Move Your Butt 24 pack helps support the Move your Butt campaign by providing a 50 cent per pack contribution to help Kiwis fight bowel cancer. CottonSofts initiative gets the symptoms directly into New Zealand households – prompting earlier checking and diagnosis.

You can join this great cause.  Every move you make in June can literally make a difference. Taking part in the Move Your Butt campaign is easy; all you need to do is sign up, challenge yourself to move more in any way you choose, get sponsored and raise funds. Every dollar goes a long way so get your family, friends and workplace to join in.
