42kms Closer to a Cure – New York Marathon for Cure Cancer Australia
InSite Commercial Interiors is committed to supporting the community in fundraising efforts for a number of valuable causes.
At a recent cocktail evening hosted by Accountancy firm HLB Mann Judd, InSite was made aware of one staff member’s commitment to the Cure Cancer Australia Foundation.
Holly Ord is a Supervisor at HLB Mann Judd Accountants in Perth, and will be heading to New York in November to run the New York Marathon in support of the Cure Cancer Australia Foundation.
When InSite Managing Director, Ron Bullen was told of Holly’s mission, he was quick to support her efforts.
Cure Cancer Australia’s focus is to find a cure for cancer.
One in two families are touched by cancer in their lifetime and Cure Cancer Australia is determined to improve prevention, detection and treatment outcomes to reduce the suffering caused by cancer.
In 2011, Cure Cancer Australia will provide 21 one year grants of $90,000 each to the best young researchers in our country with fresh approaches across all areas of cancer research.
$50 funds one hour, $1,900 funds one week, $7,500 funds one month and $90,000 funds one year of vital cancer research.
Without these funds many Australian scientists would have left the research field or not have had the chance to apply for further funding.
Without research there can be no cure for this devastating disease.
