On Friday 13th March, the Werribee Mazda Challenge Golf Day celebrated its 10th year supporting Challenge.
Swinging into action and putting for a purpose, more than 100 people gathered on the glorious fairways of the Kooringal Golf Club to raise funds for children and families living with cancer. The day also welcomed The Block's Keith Schleiger and Essendon Football Club's Jake Stringer, Devon Smith and Dr Bruce Reid.
The event is organised every year by Yarraville locals, Tony and Helen Barr, who first became involved with Challenge in 1996 when their nephew, Nick, was diagnosed with cancer. They have since been invaluable members of the Challenge community and we are very grateful to them for their efforts and contribution to this Golf Day, which is proudly sponsored by Werribee Mazda.
The funds raised from the event go specifically towards supporting Challenge families who live in the Western suburbs of Melbourne.
What Tony and Helen have been able to achieve over the last ten years is truly remarkable and a testament to their determined spirits. The support of the Kooringal Golf Club, Werribee Mazda and local businesses is also hugely important and the day would not be the success it is without them.
A big congratulations to everyone involved! We cannot thank you all enough - especially our volunteers - for devoting your time and energy into this event!
