Car-lover revs up can­cer fight

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

HE lost his mother to can­cer, has watched his brother and fa­ther fight off the dis­ease and has even been di­ag­nosed him­self.

But East Victoria Park’s James Hol­beach is de­ter­mined that can­cer will not beat him.

The avid car and pho­tog­ra­phy lover is now on a mis­sion to raise money for Can­cer Coun­cil to help find a cure for the dis­ease.

Mr Hol­beach signed up to take part in the Mystery Box rally, where par­tic­i­pants drive un­known cars along a mystery route.

Teams fly to a de­par­ture lo­ca­tion in Ade­laide, but have no idea where they are head­ing or where the track will take them.

Mr Hol­beach, who had surgery in Fe­bru­ary to treat his bowel can­cer, said he was ready for an ad­ven­ture.

“The best we can do is help raise money for fu­ture re­search,” Mr Hol­beach said.

“The Can­cer Coun­cil does valu­able work and we would like to help.”

Mr Hol­beach will be driv­ing the Mystery Box rally in Septem­ber with friend James Guy.

The pair have so far raised more than $11,400, but hope to reach $20,000.
