‘Old blokes’ exceed their target in fundraiser for Australian Cancer Research Foundation

When six friends took off on a five-day road trip across NSW earlier this year in vintage vehicles, little did they know how much they would raise in their efforts.

The group of car enthusiasts steered across country, notching up 800 kilometres to raise $50,000 for Australian Cancer Research Foundation.

Not only did they breeze through the adventures, the mates almost doubled their target. Mario Nearchou, Harry Moustakas, Nick Harris, Michael Skyllas, John Assarapin and Bob Hickman, doubled their target!

On June 2, the ‘Old Blokes Driving for a Cancer Cure’ hosted an incredible fundraising event at Doltone House Sylvania Waters. Together with the funds raised during their inspiring road trip around NSW in April, they have achieved an outstanding total of $94,406 life-saving funds raised to help back the brightest minds and boldest ideas in cancer research. Their support will play a vital role in advancing cancer research and making a difference in countless lives. 

“The loss of my father and father-in-law, as well as work colleagues and friends, to this disease has inspired me to take action and raise funds for cancer research.” Mario Nearchou, Old Blokes fundraiser
