GREAT EF­FORT

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

I CON­GRAT­U­LATE Curtin Univer­sity com­mu­nity for re­cently stag­ing a very suc­cess­ful Re­lay For Life, which raised an in­cred­i­ble $80,000. The pro­ceeds will fund valu­able support ser­vices, along with im­por­tant re­search and preven­tion pro­grams.

This is the third time Re­lay for Life Curtin Univer­sity has been held and the 25 mem­bers of the or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee did an out­stand­ing job in putting it to­gether and gen­er­at­ing twice as many team reg­is­tra­tions com­pared to the pre­vi­ous year.

More than 500 in­di­vid­u­als par­tic­i­pated in the 24-hour event, in­clud­ing 40 vol­un­teers, 25 sur­vivors, 20 car­ers and 48 teams, with a spe­cial men­tion to Team Josh who topped the fundrais­ing lad­der with their $8000 ef­fort.

Talk about man’s best friend. Como res­i­dent Derek Large was down at Deep Wa­ter Point a few weeks ago when he took a lovely photo of what he thought was a guy and a girl. It wasn’t un­til he looked closer he re­alised it was a guy with a dog. Have a photo to share? Send it to south­erngazette@ com­mu­ni­tynews.com.au SUE DO­HERTY, Mayor, City of South Perth.
