Bowling for Bear


Chris “Bear” O’Meagher was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in November 2017. A formidable presence at the Victorian Open and bowling greens around Australia and the Pacific region, Chris took the opportunity his own diagnosis created to promote pancreatic cancer awareness. The Pancare Foundation - an organisation that supports pancreatic cancer patients and their families, as well as providing funding and research in the treatment of pancreatic cancer - was a great support to Chris.  

It was Chris’ dream to see the purple ribbon - the pancreatic cancer symbol - on bowls shirts and in bowling clubs throughout Australia. It was his goal to return to the Vic Open in 2018 promoting issues close to his heart.

This year, with the support of Bowls Victoria, Anthony Ayoub at Drakes Pride, the Pancare Foundation, Melbourne Bowling Club (President Ewen Wilson and coach Shane Fordham), St Kilda Bowls Club President Dan Manger and Chris’ family the purple ribbon will be present at the Steller Victorian Open in the Greater Shepparton region (November 16 - 23). Merchandise will be available at Shepparton Park Bowls Club throughout the Open, with funds raised going to support the work of the Pancare Foundation. Donations can also be made on this page.

It's time for us to make a change - join in the fight against pancreatic cancer today.
