Balmoral Swim for Cancer
Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore) (17:41:01):
I acknowledge the Balmoral Swim for Cancer, which was initiated by the Mosman community in my electorate and 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 was held on Sunday 14 March. I congratulate the overall winners HMAS Penguin team "Lay Flat Larry's", and thank all those in our community who contributed to the fundraising efforts. Unfortunately, due to the inclement weather last weekend, the schools relay challenge was postponed. When it recommences, a number of my local schools will be battling it out in the water and in their fundraising efforts. Good luck to Queenwood, Wenona School, Mosman High School, Sydney Church of England Grammar, Mosman Preparatory School and Redlands. The next event will be on Sunday 28 March for the one‑, two‑ and five‑kilometre Around the Bay swims. Good luck to all participating. I thank the Balmoral Beach Club, Balmoral Swim for Cancer and all the volunteers for all that they do.
