SEC Care Sweethearts raise $2,288 for Relay for Life 2019
A group of South Eastern Community Care staff and their families recently took part in the Cancer Council’s Relay for Life 2019.
Over the weekend of the 23rd and 24th of March, the Athletics Centre on the Hobart Domain became a tent-city, with many people dressing up and enjoying the social occasion, while also remember the serious and important goal – raising funds and awareness for cancer support and research.
We are pleased to have participated in Relay for Life for three years now, as we know cancer has touched the lives of many of our staff, volunteers, clients and their families.
Since 2017, we have proudly raised over $6,050.
