The children from Warilla Baptist Preschool painted rocks to take home and place out into the community to be found, to create awareness for ovarian cancer and it’s symptoms and raise money for vital research.
Each child painted and created their own beautiful and unique rock that had an awareness message label on the back about the Facebook group Rock for Roc group. A group that places painted rocks into the community to be found, pictures and the rocks location are posted to the group, this is known as a “rock drop” with the hashtag #RockforROC
