Run for a good cause
CURTIN University students are encouraging the community to register a team in the Relay For Life Curtin
The event, to keep a baton moving in a relay style for 24 hours, aims to raise $100,000 for Cancer Council WA.
Event chair Krishan Shah said the event was organised by students and recent graduates who volunteered their time to put on the event.
“This is a great way for young minds to develop their professional skills as well as support a worthy cause,” he said.
The students were recently presented with four awards at the Heroes of Hope Awards hosted by Cancer Council WA.
The committee was presented with the Community Spirit Award for best local community engagement; the Team Growth Award for the largest increase in volunteer numbers; the Most Improved Event Award for the most transformed event from the previous year; and the Youth Spirit Award, awarded to one team member under the age of 25 who has engaged their local community to the fullest.
