Team puts char­ity in pink

Pilbara News - - Pilbara | News - Louise Alling­ham

Richard and Narelle Naulls’ team for Ray White Kar­ratha were the eighth-high­est fundrais­ers in the coun­try for this year’s Mother’s Day Classic, rais­ing $16,143 for the Na­tional Breast Cancer Foun­da­tion.

Through the sup­port of lo­cal busi­nesses, the staff at Ray White and the Kar­ratha com­mu­nity, Mr and Mrs Naulls have now raised more than $55,000 for the Mother’s Day Classic since they started six years ago.

Mrs Naulls said she never would have ex­pected their cause to gain such huge mo­men­tum.

“We are so proud of our amaz­ing staff and also the whole com­mu­nity of Kar­ratha for help­ing get be­hind not only what we’re do­ing to fundraise, but also the whole Mother’s Day Classic event,” she said.

The pair were mo­ti­vated to raise money af­ter Ms Naulls and her mother were di­ag­nosed with breast cancer.

Mrs Naulls spent six months fly­ing to and from Perth for treat­ment and was clear of cancer five years af­ter her di­ag­no­sis. She said hav­ing to travel fre­quently for treat­ment added ex­tra chal­lenges to an al­ready dif­fi­cult time.

Over the past decade, 153 towns have hosted 482 re­gional events.

Dona­tions are still open at moth­ers­day­clas­sic.com.au.
