Big Bowel’s 2017 Australian Tour
As part of Bowel Cancer Awareness Month, Bowel Cancer Australia’s Big Bowel toured parts of New South Wales and Victoria in June, providing spectators with a fun and unique way to learn about bowel cancer and how it can be prevented.
The interactive journey through the 7m long and 2.6m high inflatable Big Bowel received great reviews from Australians wherever it went.
Described by observers as a “simple and fun way to effectively educate people about bowel cancer” that was “very awesome and very well done,” comments about Bowel Cancer Australia’s big bowel were enthusiastically positive.
Thank you to everyone who came along to say hello and to help out during the first leg of the Big Bowel’s 2017 Australian tour.
