Volunteering at the Mackay Marina Run over the last 3 years has been a rewarding experience. Both in joining with the wonderful hard working and enthusiastic organisers to support this event and by cheering on the participants of all ages, abilities and fitness levels. Everyone showing great spirit and dedication to giving their all on the day.
It is also exciting to note that funds raised during this event are donated to a very worthwhile cause in the Leukaemia Foundation. This organisation is dedicated to supporting people diagnosed with a blood cancer and their families during treatment and recovery whether with accommodation when away from home or assisting with practical, financial or emotion concerns. The foundation is also committed to continuing to fund research and new trials and hope to eventually assist in the discovery of a cure for all blood cancers.
We would encourage everyone to support this wonderful organisation by joining our great bunch of volunteers. A few hours to enjoy a great day to share the load. You won’t regret it.
