Newcastle’s most unique surfing competition, Tubes4Boobs, is back at Dixon Park on October 29 and 30 to raise a few laughs and vital funds for Cancer Council NSW.

There is a longboard and shortboard division plus a tag team contest where teammates must exchange a bra. Last year over 70 participants took part across 12 divisions and raised $20,000 for the first Newcastle event.

Event organiser Courtney Bower is hoping to match the effort. She has seen first-hand the impact that a cancer diagnosis can have on a family as both her mother and grandmother are survivors of breast cancer.

“Breast cancer will affect one in eight women and with October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month it provides an opportunity for all of us to focus on the impact of breast cancer,” she said.

“Money raised from Tubes4Boobs will enable the Cancer Council to continue to support women and their families here in the Hunter affected by cancer through providing prevention and support services as well as funding research.”

In addition, the 3 Peas Markets is on October 30.
