Our tireless supporters never cease to amaze us here at SWCCF. We currently have four teams and individuals who are all doing some amazing things to help us meet the challenge of 100% survival for ALL children diagnosed with cancer. Meet the crew of people who have challenged themselves:
Emma Brooker took part in the Dubbo Stampede on Sunday 28 August, tackling the half marathon or Zebra Zoom as it is called. Emma ran from tigers and lions through Dubbo Zoo for an amazing cause – SWCCF! You can get behind Emma and help her raise as much as she can for SWCCF by donating via her fundraising page. You might recognise Emma, who comes along and sells merchandise every year at the Snowy Ride, and is also one of our merchandise models. Best of luck Emma – we hope its a fun run for you.
The overcoming obstacles team has been taking part in the Spartan Challenge this year. With two events under their belt already, they are gearing up for their third and final challenge in Brisbane on 3 September. Aptly named ‘the beast’, it is a gruelling 21km with 35 obstacles. It will be a test of spirit for the team, who want to overcome the obstacles and help meet the challenge of 100% survival for all children diagnosed with cancer. Show your support for their amazing effort and commitment.
SWCCF supporter Rob Young is taking part in the Postie Bike challenge in Western Australia from 3 to 12 September. After losing his mum and some good friends to cancer, Rob says he can’t imagine what a parent goes through watching their child battle cancer, let along the child enduring treatment. Show your support for Rob as he takes on the vast distances from Perth to Broome across inland WA all in the name of adventure and charity.
Susie Price is one part of an amazing group of friends who regularly come along to the Snowy Ride, and have been raising funds to make an even bigger contribution. As well as organising other fundraising events this year and helping SWCCF sell raffle tickets and collect donations at the Phillip Island Superbikes in February, Susie also takes part in fun runs. She is pounding the pavement on Sunday 4 September in the Mornington Running Festival – with her being to run the 10km comfortably under 50 minutes. Way to go Susie, let’s show her our support!
A huge thank you from the SWCCF family to all of our fundraisers – we truly appreciate your dedication and support for our cause.
