Physiohealth Supporting My Room
Our good friend Adam Murchie is doing some great things at the moment. Physiohealth are proud supporters of Adam's cause to raise money for the children's cancer centre at the Royal Children's Hospital and we urge as many people as possible to get involved in this fantastic cause. Here is what Adam has to say. Good Luck Adam, we wish you all the best! "A few of you have heard me raving about the My Room ball I recently attended which is associated with raising funds for the children’s cancer centre of the Royal Children’s Hospital. Through my travels, I have become connected with the people who set up My Room and have seen the amazing work they have done. Last year they did their inaugural My Ride which went from the Casa and Bottega café in North Melbourne to Black Rock and back and raised about $4000 for My Room. This year, they have bought in a few new faces, including my good self, to increase the size of My Ride and seek to raise $20k from the event. My Ride will happen on Saturday November 30 and will depart Casa and Bottega Café (Sutton St North Melbourne) at 8.00am (7.30am arrival for on time departure). There are two ways to be involved – do My Ride itself and register yourself as a rider or support someone doing the ride. The ride will be fun and the plan is to have families, friends etc meet the riders back at Casa and Bottega once the ride is finished (approx. 10am). As a few of you know, my racing ambitions and coming to a close and I am keen to be involved with efforts such as these. Imagine having a kid suffering from cancer and the pain and trauma associated with it. My Room is doing all it can to raise funds and every cent of what they raise goes to providing family support facilities, the training and availability of specialised social workers, education and in-service activities of all staff and the ongoing support of fundamental laboratory research, the redevelopment of the Children’s Cancer Centre, assistance with operational expenditure requirements of the Children’s Cancer Centre and the funding of research initiatives through the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute. It would be great if we could get as many people along for My Ride as possible. If you can join in on Saturday November 30, please register at otherwise please donate whatever spare change you can afford here and click on the “Donate Now” button. Help me raise money for children’s cancer and I hope we can smash the $20,000 fundraising target for these guys."
