Thank you

Whitsunday Times - - WHITSUNDAY VIEWS -

ON BE­HALF of Can­cer Coun­cil Queens­land, thank you to the peo­ple of Whit­sun­days for their sup­port of Re­lay For Life at the week­end.

The event was a tremen­dous suc­cess.

More than $19,700 was raised by 18 teams and 190 par­tic­i­pants who took to the track to help us fight back against can­cer.

The fund­ing will go to­wards life-sav­ing re­search, pro­grams, and sup­port for those af­fected.

This in­cludes around 600 peo­ple in the Mackay re­gion who will be di­ag­nosed with can­cer this year.

We take this op­por­tu­nity to ac­knowl­edge the tire­less en­thu­si­asm of the lo­cal Re­lay For Life Com­mit­tee, who vol­un­teer their time to cham­pion our cause for the com­mu­nity.

Be­cause of Re­lay we are one step closer to a can­cer free fu­ture. Thank you once again.

Prof Jeff Dunn AO, CEO Can­cer Coun­cil Queens­land
