Sin­cere thanks

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Opinion -

ON be­half of Can­cer Coun­cil Western Aus­tralia, I would like to ex­tend a huge thanks to all of those in­volved in last month’s Re­lay For Life held at UWA.

The 750 par­tic­i­pants from 66 teams who braved bad weather at the open­ing to even­tu­ally raise $85,000, and all of the sup­port teams, were ab­so­lutely amaz­ing!

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the ‘Knitters for a cure’, who were the high­est fundrais­ers, and to (can­cer sur­vivor) Matthew Ea­ton who gave an amaz­ing speech at the can­dle­light cer­e­mony.

Your ef­forts have made an enor­mous dif­fer­ence to the many peo­ple around WA touched by can­cer who are helped by the pro­grams, ed­u­ca­tion and ser­vices we pro­vide as well as help­ing us to fund vi­tal can­cer re­search so that we can move closer to a can­cer-free fu­ture.

It was great to see so many young peo­ple in­volved in this com­mu­nity event and we look for­ward to your on­go­ing sup­port of Re­lay For Life. Su­san Rooney, chief ex­ec­u­tive, Can­cer Coun­cil WA.
