On Friday the 2nd of December, we held the 11th annual Lambourne Partners Charity Golf Day at the Newcastle Golf Club in Fern Bay. The event has raised $150,00.00 for local charities since 2011.
This year our selected charity was RUN DIPG. This charity is dedicated to improving the outcomes for patients and families impacted by the deadliest form of childhood cancer – Brainstem cancer, Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG).
This Year We Raised $22,000.00 For RUN DIPG
“RUN DIPG and all the families we represent that have been devastated by the most lethal childhood disease, DIPG, thank all the generous attendees at the 11th Lambourne Partners Charity Golf Day. Engaging and well managed events, like last Friday, are critical to allowing us to educate about DIPG, what families experience, and how RUN DIPG is investing the donations we receive.
$22,000 makes a huge impact to how we can support Novocastrian families. This year RUN DIPG committed to funding a Paediatric Brain Cancer Nurse at John Hunter Children Hospital. Our nurse Ti-Anna helps families navigate the medical system and maintain a high standard of care. She is the most important person to all patients and families in the hardest of times. We will be able to cover almost 4 months of her vital role at the hospital. Thank you.”
– Troy Bailey, CEO of RUN DIPG
