2019's City2Lake smashed all records, bringing in more money for charity than any of the previous City2Lakes.
At $73,000, it raised more than double the amount of donations as 2018's City2Lake, which raised $36,000.
The money will save Can Assist Griffith, which had been on the verge of collapse due to the sheer number of families that depend on its support.
With 150 families currently on its books, Can Assist is a pillar of emotional and financial support to locals battling cancer.
Can Assist Griffith president Olga Forner has helped around 6000 families over the years, and she was relieved that she could continue being there for those people.
"I am just lost for words - I don't know how I can say thank you enough to all the people that became involved with City2Lake 2019," Ms Forner said.
"What a fantastic day it’s been."
The day attracted around 1200 cyclists, runners, and walkers who assembled at Jubilee Oval starting line on Sunday morning.
The morning sun rose on a motley crowd - there were parents with prams, joggers in garish fluro shoes, and cyclists fully clad in their tightest fitting lycra.
They made their way to the finish line at Lake Wyangan, some taking things at a leisurely pace, others sprinting like a bat out of hell.
The fastest runner was Aidan Fattore, who ran the nine kilometre track in a blistering 33 minutes and 30 seconds.
The fastest woman runner was Narelle Lagergren, who completed the run in 40 minutes and 17 seconds.
Once everyone reached the finish line they could slump exhaustedly on the green lawns of Lake Wyangan.
