In 2019 I am dancing in the Stars of Parramatta to raise funds for Cancer Council NSW. I will be dancing the TANGO with Nicola from Arthur Murray Parramatta. From the launch in May until the dance off Saturday 27th July I have about 8 weeks to learn all the Tango dance steps and perfect my routine with the help of Nicola.
By sponsoring me you will help Cancer Council NSW to fund vital Cancer research and support. I have many family members who have been touched by cancer so you will be helping them along with the 150,000 new cases of cancer set to be diagnosed in 2020.
My colleagues at the Children's Medical Research Institute (CMRI), where I work as Head of Operations, will also benefit from your support. CMRI is a beneficiary from multiple Cancer Council NSW grants.
If you would like to come and watch me dance on Saturday 27th July at the Parramatta RSL please check the details below.
