What an event! What an incredible achievement! What a wonderful example of a whole community coming together in fun, fellowship and demonstrating such massive solidarity for a common cause – the fight against cancer.
The 10th anniversary of the Casey Cardinia Relay For Life raised a staggering total of over $450,000 – the largest ever in Victoria.
Team Katrina’s contribution to this massive effort was over $10,500! This amazing figure ensures that, once again, and for the 3rd consecutive year, a research grant will be made available in Katrina’s name.
With more than 100 registered team members, we had an army of support on and off the track as the baton was carried in memory of Katrina for the 24 hours.
We extend our sincere thanks to everyone who supported Team Katrina but especially to Maxine Curtis and Joan Mc,Kendry for their huge contribution, for making possible this wonderful achievement. Our final total was raised from the following:
- Bollywood Night fund raiser on March 1st.
- Catering at Relay for Life by the Rotary Club of Narre Warren
- Team registrations
- Sales of pre loved books at Relay for Life
- Donations made to Berwick Physios for massage treatment at Relay for Life
- Donations from individuals and organisations
Despite the challenging conditions at the end when the heavens opened and drenched the exhausted participants, Relay for Life 2103 was a very special event to be remembered and locked away in the memory bank for all time.
Congratulations to everyone involved!
