Run, walk or ride - arrangements for Griffith's most popular fundraiser The Casella/Visy and Griffith City Council City 2 Lake for Griffith Can Assist are in full swing.
This is a fundraiser which is important to Griffith as all funds raised will remain in Griffith and used to assist and support cancer affected families.
As Griffith Can Assist is community-funded, support from our community is vital to help keep our charity strong and viable so we are able to continue offering care and comfort.
