It was a huge year of Community Fundraising events, and we’d like to thank all those who supported us throughout November and December, which is a particularly busy time for many, with the lead up to Christmas.

Cockburn Cricket Club Diana Smith Memorial Quiz Night Fundraiser

The Cockburn Cricket Club in WA held their Memorial Fundraiser in honour of their inaugural women’s team captain Diana Smith, who passed away in 2021. They had a fantastic turn out of 250 people and were blown away by the support of local businesses and community members with donations of auction items and raffle prizes. A fun night was had by all, raising an amazing $24,640. Thank you to the Cockburn Cricket Club for your ongoing support, and to all those who were involved in the event.

REVFIT 24 Hour Melanoma Marathon

Adam Brooks is a big supporter of our ‘Game on Mole’ campaign and once again hosted the annual REVFIT 24 hour Melanoma Marathon in Tamworth over the weekend of the 2 and 3 December. Over 100 participants were involved in the mammoth effort of keeping the gym equipment running for 24 hours, raising an incredible $7426! What a fantastic achievement! Thanks to all the local businesses and community members who rallied around Adam to make it another successful REVFIT Melanoma Marathon.
