GRIFFITH Relay For Life is set to reach a new benchmark following a recent donation by the Rotary Club of Griffith.
In the lead up to the March event Rotary have donated $2000, which will tip the total amount raised to more than $650,000, since beginning in 2002.
The event raises money to help support Griffith’s cancer patients, survivors and carers.
Griffith Relay For Life Chair Grant Hearn said The Rotary Club of Griffith plays an important role in the community’s biggest platform to fight cancer.
“”It is always wonderful to have The Rotary Club of Griffith supporting our cancer patients, survivors and their carers as well as investing with Cancer Council NSW to help find long term solutions to all cancers,’ he said.
“We have to thank The Rotary Club of Griffith not just for this significant donation...but for all the work they do in the community, you have to ask the question where you would be without them.”
Don Best from Rotary said the donation is part of the clubs ongoing support to the community and they intent to continue their support well into the future.
