Corporate giving in QLD comes alive on the sporting field!

Company fundraising via the QLD Corporate GamesThe 13th annual QLD Corporate Games will finish with a bang this evening after a weekend of sporting enthusiasm, friendly competition, and of course, cancer fundraising for the ACRF.

As the Games’ official charity, the ACRF is delighted to be attending the Corporate Games Cocktail party tonight (and speaking more personally with the many staff and company representatives now that they’ve hung up their runners and football boots).

The QLD Corporate Games was a fantastic success! The ACRF would like to congratulate Walt Hiltner and Ellen Goff for such seamless organisation and for generating a fantastic community spirit. We also thank the Queensland government and the other major sponsors Canon, Marriot Brisbane, 4BC Radio, Scody and OKI.

It was a pleasure to visit the sporting grounds at the University of Queensland over the weekend (a location in which we are particularly proud to have two ACRF-funded cancer research facilities) and watch the 5000 staff from the finance, mining, retail, tourism and government sectors going head-to-head for their health, fitness, and a fantastic cause.

Queensland is one particular Australian State where cancer researchers punch well above their weight on an international level, and the ACRF is proud to have provided $14 million to support the work of these world-class cancer researchers.

The ACRF has recently closed its 2012 grant application rounds where, out of 12 submissions, 6 of these came from Queensland. It is an indication of the quality and rate at which researchers in Queensland are working to find the treatments and cures for cancer.
