There is no better way to see 2022 out, than providing hope for the future to all those living with a sarcoma diagnosis.
We are honoured to announce CRBF was the nominated charity for the annual Macquarie Group Banking and Financial Services (BFS) Trivia Night. This is a staff event organised by volunteers within BFS to support philanthropic causes.
The event commenced with a CRBF sarcoma awareness video containing snippets of the speech Cooper Rice-Brading delivered to 250 guests at the launch of CRBF in March of 2017, using the platform to highlight the insidious nature of the disease, together with the severe lack of awareness in the community, and the dire lack of funding sarcoma receives.
Through the event, Macquarie staff raised over $173,000 for CRBF, a truly remarkable effort which will contribute to sarcoma specific clinical research and patient support in Australia. This will be allocated to two very exciting high level projects to commence in early 2023.
Our thanks cannot be adequately articulated to all of the Macquarie BFS staff who participated and their immense generosity. This event would not have been possible without the organisational skills of the Macquarie BFS volunteers who organised the event in support of CRBF. Special thanks must go to Cooper’s school friend Mark Yam, together with Avantika Pratap, Georgia and Maddie Waites who worked diligently behind the scenes to ensure the resounding success of the event.
As the sun sets on 2022, we take this opportunity to wish each of our supporters the promise of hope, good health and happiness in 2023. The work we do for those living with a sarcoma diagnosis would not be possible without your ongoing support and generosity.
