Pirates were spotted on Dee Why Beach a few weeks ago! However, it wasn’t Captain Jack Sparrow of the Black Pearl but Christine and her team of swash-buckling Pirates of the Cure-ibbean!
Located at the beautifully picturesque Dee Why Beach, the Sun Herald Surf Swim charity challenge attracts hundreds of swimmers, looking to take on the 800m or 1.5km course for a charity of their choice.
A group of fantastic ACRF supporters – including Christine who flew all the way from Perth to participate in the event – cleverly dubbed themselves the Pirates of the Cure-ibbean. They tackled the 1.5km charity challenge all in the name of cancer research!
We asked Christine why she and her team decided to fundraise for the ACRF, “Cancer essentially touches the lives of us all one way or another, and regardless of the type, the aggressiveness or whether or not the victim of such a devastating disease survives or not, it changes us all and is a struggle to witness and/or endure no matter the time or degree of suffering.”
“Between the 5 of us we raised $1,835 for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation which we are each very proud of and very thankful to our supporters for donating for such a good cause,” said Christine.
We’d like to thank Christine and the Pirates of the Cure-ibbean team for their support and kind generosity in raising funds for world class cancer research!
