Beaconhills College has officially kickstarted its 2018 Relay for Life campaign with a cupcake fundraiser at the Pakenham Campus which raised $900.
2018 will be the tenth year that Beaconhills has participated in the event, which raises vital funds for the Cancer Council’s research, prevention and support services.
Once again the College’s two campuses expect to sign up hundreds of families from the school who will walk as the ‘Beacon of Hope’ team at both the Cardinia and Casey events.
Last year the Berwick Campus team was the highest fundraiser at the Casey Relay for Life.
The College’s 2017 donation to Cancer Council totalled $50,613, which went to The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute of Medical Research to help with research into the role of Epstein-Barr virus (EBV) in certain types of lymphomas.
Beaconhills’ Head of Citizenship and Service, Clare Tuohy, said there was no doubt that the school community, from Little Beacons Learning Centre through to alumni and board members, had enthusiastically embraced the fundraising event.
“We are all touched at some point of our lives by cancer,” Mrs Tuohy said. “As a College, we want to be part of the research and development so that a cure for cancer can be found.”
