Balmoral Swim for Cancer
Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore)
—I would like to acknowledge the 'Balmoral Swim for Cancer', initiated by the Mosman community in my electorate, which has been raising funds for cancer related charities since 1990. A number of events are included in the calendar, all organised by the locally based Balmoral Beach Club and a number of founding members since 2005. The Balmoral Team Challenge is one of those events and it was held on Sunday March 14. Congratulations to the overall winners HMAS Penguin team 'Lay Flat Larry's', and thank you to all those in our community who contributed to the fundraising efforts. Unfortunately due to the inclement weather the Schools Relay Challenge on Sunday March 21 was postponed. A number of my local schools will be battling it out, both in the water and in their fundraising efforts. Good luck to Queenwood, Wenona, Mosman High, Sydney Church of England Grammar, Mosman Prep and Redlands. The next event will be Sunday March 28 for the 1, 2 or 5 km 'Around the Bay' swim. Good luck to all participating. Thank you to Balmoral Swim and all the volunteers for all that you do.
