FIGHTING CANCER ON TWO WHEELS
WELCOME AND THANK YOU FOR CONTRIBUTING TO OUR CAUSE
Jim Waight has pulled together a team of 12 very 'average' riders, to cycle 520km in two days from Swan Hill to Port Fairy, as part of the Murray to Moyne Cycling event on March 27-28, 2021. Jim and his team are aiming to raise over $30,000 for the Fiona Elsey Cancer Research Institute. We hope you can assist the team in reaching our goal. Thank you.
FIONA ELSEY CANCER RESEARCH INSTITUTE
Led by Professor George Kannourakis, the Ballarat based Institute is making a world class contribution to cancer research.
FECRI are non-government funded, and rely on the generous support of the community to continue research into more effective ways to diagnose and treat cancer.
Our goal is to raise $30,000 for FECRI. Please help us reach our target and support us in any way you can.
James Waight, husband, father of 3, and very average cyclist, was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin’s Follicular Lymphoma (a form of blood cancer) in November 2019. Since that time he has undergone six cycles of chemotherapy.
Jim is determined to make a difference to unlocking the mystery around cancer which so many people experience and numerous families are affected by so drastically.
"I think we've all been touched by cancer in someway. I am benefiting first hand from the work FECRI do. Every dollar raised helps their team continue to research better ways to treat this disease, and ultimately the survival of someone's loved one."
