BRAVE - Aberdeen Beach Ballroom

Friday 5th May 2017

Aberdeen Beach Ballroom


On the 5th May, the night before Courage on the Catwalk, we hosted the inaugural Brave show exclusively for men.

The show took place in front of a sell-out audience of over 550 to capture the strength of men who have faced the reality of a cancer diagnosis.

24 men for across the North-east, as far north as Elgin down to Laurencekirk, took to the runway for the very first time to unite together for what as an evening of real camaraderie and a celebration of life in the face of a cancer diagnosis.

The model line-up included 18 different cancer types- including testicular, prostate, bowel and lymphoma- from 18 to 78 years old.

Over £100,000 was raised at the show which is a testament to the incredible men who so bravely shared the stories with the people of the North-east.

Stay tuned for further information about Brave 2018!

Every penny raised from Courage on the Catwalk and Brave has gone directly to Friends of ANCHOR’S biggest fundraising appeal, ‘Dream Big’ pledging £1milllion to the University of Aberdeen’s ambitious £4.5million project to attract and recruit a world class cancer research team to the North-east. This is a huge investment which will ultimately have a significant impact on the care, treatment and wellbeing provided to local cancer and haematology patients.
