Winners of the Balmoral Swim for Cancer
Ms FELICITY WILSON (North Shore)
—Hundreds of local residents recently participated in the annual Balmoral Swim for Cancer. Congratulations to Karen Panaretto for taking out the 1km swim, Lindsay Cavanagh who won the 2km race, and Carl Sorensen for winning the 5km race. It was an excellent effort by all participants who made the most of the event on a spectacular blue sky day. The Schools Relay Challenge took place a few weeks later and a number of my local schools battled it out in the water. Well done to Queenwood, Wenona, Mosman High, Shore, Mosman Prep, and Redlands. Redlands won the Charity Cup for the highest average funds per team and, with a very tight scoreboard, Shore was the overall winner of the Challenge Shield. Due to COVID restrictions last year, the swim could not take place as anticipated and this created more excitement for this year's event, helping to make it a huge success in raising funds for the Children's Cancer Institute. Thank you to the volunteers who made the event possible and to everyone in our community for their continued support of this worthy cause.
