Tiffany Cherry joins Women’s Health Week to help spread the good health message

We are delighted to welcome Tiffany Cherry as our newest Women’s Health Week Ambassador.

Tiffany is one of Australia’s leading sports presenters and producers, with a media career spaning two decades and three continents across television, film, radio, print and digital.

Tiffany is an award-winning broadcaster with an undying love for all things sport who has covered a variety of sports in Australia and around the world, including the NFL Superbowl, the Olympic Games, NBA finals, Wimbledon, US Open tennis, the PGA tour and the Volvo Around the World Yacht Race. She is a popular media personality in Australia and has been a Foxtel Olympic Host, a SKY News Sports Presenter and a Fox Footy Presenter.

Tiffany is passionate about diversity and helping drive social inclusion and equality in the workplace, and is also an ambassador for Australian Prostate Cancer Research.

“Without our health, we have nothing and while men are more notorious for not getting their health checked, women are generally guilty of putting everyone else first before looking after themselves, especially when it comes to getting active and making physical activity a priority,” says Tiffany.

“Having worked in the health care industry and also as a sports journalist, as well as being a competitive runner and triathlete in my younger years, I have from a very young age understood the importance of my own health. But nothing has enforced the point more than being a single mum to a three-year-old. Without my health, my daughter’s will suffer, so I’m embracing the challenge of a healthy lifestyle around the new time challenges my work and personal life present. 

Women are great at forming networks and communicating, so let’s network together and communicate until we can’t talk any more about the benefits to all of us that are derived from females, young and old, making their physical and mental health and fitness a priority.

I’m excited about becoming a Women’s Health Week ambassador and can’t wait to get healthy and fit with you all.”

The national campaign, run by not-for-profit organisation Jean Hailes for Women’s Health, is held in the first week of September (3-7) and encourages women to make time to focus on their own health and wellbeing. 

 “We are thrilled to have the support of Tiffany as a Women’s Health Week ambassador,” says Janet Michelmore AO, executive director of Jean Hailes. “We want to get the message out to all women that it’s time they put themselves first and having strong female role models such as Tiffany lend their voice is really powerful.” 

“We know women can be so busy taking care of others that they often fail to find the time for their own health. The week is a good reminder for women to put their own health at the top of their to-do list.”
