Olympian stops off in Bendigo during tour

Ms Curry is travelling to 100 towns around the nation as part of her One Life, One Chance Aussie Road Trip to promote healthy living, and Bendigo is her sixth stop.

 At a training session with members of the Bendigo Dragons Abreast team, Ms Curry said it was important for people to enjoy their life. 

“It is all about life balance,” Ms Curry said.

“You have to have the ‘attitude for gratitude’ and enjoy a healthy life, both physically and mentally.”

Dragons Abreast is a national organisation comprising breast cancer survivors who take part in dragon boat racing.

Dragons Abreast member Jo Haythorne said it was great to see someone of the stature of Lisa Curry come and take part in a training session. 

“The support that she has offered us and the enthusiasm she has shown has been fantastic,” she said. 

As part of her visit, SupaBox Boxing and Fitness Gym and the Bendigo Bank made a donation of $3000 to the Bendigo Dragons Abreast team. 

Ms Curry also held a free seminar at The Capital theatre on Friday night and led exercise and nutrition workshops at Strathdale Park at the weekend. 

Ms Curry is holding workshops about nutrition, exercise and stress levels in each town.
