24 hour walk against cancer Macarthur

The 24 hour walk against cancer Macarthur is an annual fund-raising movement that exists to provide our local hospitals and support services with the extra equipment they need to assist in the treatment, care and comfort of children and adults dealing with cancer.

Prior to this year’s event, an amazing $3.7m had been raised.

Our family became involved 8 years ago following the sad death of a wonderful and special family friend Jodie Lakeman who sadly died much too young at 24 years of age. Since this time we have every year joined with her family and friends to walk under the banner of Jod’s team.

She loved butterflies and so each year one of the team wear a butterfly symbol for each lap of the event to honour and remember her.

For the 2017 event, we were extremely fortunate for the Smartline Community Committee to support our efforts with a very generous contribution of $1,000 which was gratefully appreciated by all involved.

Again this year, in addition to raising much needed funds, the event is a real community activity and it was wonderful to see young children and young families out in great numbers and really engaging in the event.

Once the final amounts are tallied it is anticipated that we will have topped the $4m mark in monies raised which is a sensational effort.

Thanks Smartline for your fantastic support.
