We are grateful so many people could attend last weeks gathering to celebrate The Adventurers taking the next step in its fight for childhood brain cancer and becoming a standalone national charity.
Without the support, help and advice from everyone over the last few months we would not have been able to achieve so much in such a short period of time.
Special thanks goes to Dwight Clark from JB Were, David Murphy from Jackson MacDonald Lawyers, Alex Kempthorne and her entire team from Magnetize, Mark Ratts from RFT Digital, Nicholas Read from Read Corporate, Jayne Griffiths from My HR Adviser, Cameron Shaw from Hall Chadwick, Scott Slawinski: Clip Media, Susan McCarthy at Click Analysis and Justin McGovern at MKT. All of you have been so amazing to us and I feel I have asked all of you (at least once) to pull a rabbit out of a hat. Thank you!
A very special thanks must also be mentioned to Board Directors Professor Moira Clay, Matthew Fitzgerald and Rick Parish for your passion, commitment and hard work since Christmas to drive this project.
In our first Adventurers Newsletter for 2017 I am thrilled to be showcasing our new brand developed for The Adventures, whilst communicating our continued commitment to raise funds for The Brain Tumour Lab at the Telethon Kids Institute.
Next week we will also be launching our new website, which will enable you to have a look at all our opportunities for involvement.
The most significant issue for families affected by childhood cancer is the continued existence of a disease for which there are no solid answers. The Adventurers focus is to fund the answers and cure. With the transformation of The Adventurers moving towards a national charity we are excited about the remarkable opportunities that are now available to us. We want to continue to be a significant contributor in making possible the medical research which ensures the improvement of diagnoses, treatment and cure of childhood brain cancer in the foreseeable future.
The Adventurers are people up for the challenge of raising funds, whilst going beyond their comfort zone.
We look forward in 2017 to build on our amazing beginnings of a community based charity to ensuring the reason for our existence can be realised.
