Fight on the Beaches is a Northern Beaches based fundraising group whose aim is to fund Australian cancer researchers in the lab. Over the past 4 years, thanks to the support of the local community, Fight on the Beaches has raised in excess of $1.165 million through its annual ‘Christmas in July’ Charity Ball held at Miramare Gardens in Terrey Hills.
Manly Touch recently presented a cheque for $1,500 to Fight on the Beaches. Thanks to the generosity of the MWTA players at 2017 Senior State Cup in Port Macquarie, this $1,500 will fund a cancer researcher, in their lab working to find a cancer cure, for a week!
Julie Randall – Patient 71, a long time Manly Touch member and who was the subject of a Channel 9 Sixty Minutes episode spoke of her fight to survive Stage 4 Melanoma at our recent State Cup dinner, and of her role as Ambassador with Fight on the Beaches. Julie has been a member of Manly Touch for over 20 years.
Fight on the Beaches is now Manly Touch’s ‘Community Partner’ and ‘Primary Charity of Choice’ for the next three years.
Each year in February, Manly Touch members are asked to donate any old playing shirts and boots for a great cause.
These are then collected by Manly Touch sponsor Estilo Sports Travel and are taken and distributed amongst various small remote communities in Fiji who are very much in need of sports clothing and equipment.
This delivery always brings a huge smile to the faces especially amongst the kids who are not as fortunate.
