Relay for Life: Point Cook

I rise today to bring to the attention of the house a number of matters concerning our community’s collective fight against the scourge of cancer. On the night of 17 November and into the morning of 18 November this year members of my electorate will come together to take part in the inaugural Point Cook Relay for Life. Some great work by a fantastic band of volunteers has already taken place. Bands, activities, food and drink have been arranged for the event, which will be held at the Featherbrook Oval in Point Cook. To date we have raised over $3000. This is a terrific start. Over 18 teams have registered, and I hope this is a sign of terrific things to come. I am honoured to be patron of this event, which is designed to raise much-needed funds for cancer research.
