Dear Supporter

The countdown is on, just a few weeks to go until summer holidays! To help you stay healthy and happy during the silly season, we share our top tips on how to enjoy the festive cheer without a festive beer and how to make this New Year's quitting attempt a success. This month, we launched an entertaining new ad to highlight the absurdity of alcohol advertising during live sport and we need your support so share it with your friends. Lastly Cancer Council Victoria CEO, Todd Harper, questions the involvement of corporate giant Coca-Cola in bicycle initiatives.

Hope you enjoy this issue and thanks for your support in 2013!
