"I am honoured to host this event to help raise awareness and much needed funds for Cancer Council," says Josephine. "After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014 I was very grateful for the support I received from Cancer Council during my cancer journey. I’m bringing everyone together to raise funds to support cancer research and provide vital services for Australians living with cancer”

Every year in NSW alone, more than 48,000 new cases of cancer are expected to be diagnosed. The money raised from this event will fund Cancer Council’s world-class cancer research, prevention, advocacy and support programs. If you are unable to attend the event we greatly appreciate any donation to help those affected by cancer.  

Thank you to my Supporters
