24 Hour Fight Against Cancer

I have spoken about the 24 Hour Fight Against Cancer many times in this place. But it would be remiss of me not to talk about the 24 Hour team again. Last year was the first year since 2005 that the annual 24 Hour Fight Against Cancer walkathon at Campbelltown Sports Stadium's athletics track, was not able to be held. The annual event is the organisation's biggest fundraiser and one of the biggest, if not the biggest, fundraiser in the Macarthur region. Despite COVID-19 preventing last year's event from going ahead, the organisation was still able to raise $99,000 through other channels. Last year's efforts brought the organisation's total fundraising tally over the past 17 years to $4.8 million. It is an incredible effort. Those funds have made a huge difference to patients fighting cancer, and their families, in our region. Last year's effort also speaks volumes of the generosity of our community. Helping others out and digging deep into our pockets is what residents in Campbelltown and the wider Macarthur are famous for. Congratulations and well done to everyone involved in last year's fundraising efforts.
