Benefits of skipping the booze

July is fast approaching, and for some of us that means cutting out alcohol to help those in need.

Dry July is a 31-day challenge that raises funds for people affected by cancer.

The challenge started in 2008 when a group of friends wanted to take a break from alcohol. It was originally intended as a joke, but has since raised more than $49 million for cancer organisations.  

So far more than 17,500 people in Australia have registered and almost 4000 in New Zealand. Are you up for the challenge?

Dry July New Zealand CEO Brett Macdonald spoke to The AM Show.
