Making the most of easing COVID-19 restrictions, The Kids’ Cancer Project's golf day raised vital funds for childhood cancer research.

Making the most of the easing of COVID-19 restrictions, The Kids’ Cancer Project held a charity Golf Day on Friday 3 December 2021 raising funds for childhood cancer research.

Held at St Michael’s Golf Club in Sydney with spectacular coastal views as a backdrop, the club house welcomed 112 guests for the event on what was a picture-perfect morning.

The charity is becoming well known for its fundraising golf days where everyone can enjoy the opportunity to network, along with on-course activities such as longest drive, nearest the pin, putting green challenges and the chance to win big! This year $20,000 was on offer for guests who could get a hole in one at hole five.

In total, $67,000 was raised at the event. Special mention goes to Linden Toll, Founder and CEO of Apricity Finance. His organisation has the philanthropic spirit and foresight to sponsor the event for a second year in a row.

Ben Rutherford, Head of Marketing at Apricity Finance encourages other like-minded individuals and businesses to get involved. He said:

If you can, if you’re in a position to donate or raise money for The Kids’ Cancer Project, please do...I’ve got two kids of my own and the thought of them being in a situation with cancer rips me apart.

The work they do is really special, and we know that any part that we can play as a company in support of these guys makes a difference.

CEO of The Kids’ Cancer Project, Owen Finegan, notes that events like the Summer Golf Day contribute greatly to the mission of the charity; to fund research to help discover kinder, more effective children’s cancer treatments, so that kids diagnosed survive and thrive.

The charity boasts being able to extend grants to eight new research projects taking the number of studies supported from 32 to 40. Owen says:

When I meet with families going through the most challenging time of their life and tell them about the fundraising efforts of the community, they are filled with hope.

They find it truly amazing to know that other people are doing something that is genuinely working to help their children.
