Balmoral Swim for Cancer


—Speaker, each year thousands of swimmers take to the water in the beautiful surrounds of Balmoral Beach to raise much needed funds for cancer research. Now in its 33rd year the annual Balmoral Swim For Cancer is a fantastic event that has distances for all ages and levels of swimming capability, encouraging everyone to get in the water and give it a go. Since 2006 the Balmoral Swim has raised over $2,300,000 and has set an ambitious goal to raise $200,000 this year. We know that cancer kills more children than any other disease in Australia with nearly three children still dying from cancer every week. This event is not only an important way to raise money for the Children's Cancer Institute to aid their quest to end cancer, but it has become one of the most enjoyable and iconic events on the Mosman calendar. I wish everyone the best of luck with their swimming later this month, and hope that together our community and friends from elsewhere can smash that fundraising goal to help end the scourge of cancer in our community.
