Uniting to fight cancer
CANCER changes the lives of families over Australia every year, and Victorians are once again fighting back, as proved in the Unite to Fight fundraiser marathon held at the end of last month.
Over 1600 passionate people took to the streets and parks of Melbourne to ride, run and walk, and successfully raised $1.3 million to support vital research at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.
Participants were encouraged to set up fundraising pages where people could donate money towards the Peter Mac foundation.
Peter Mac is one of the world’s leading cancer research and treatment centres, and is Australia’s only public hospital which solely cares for people affected by cancer.
