Employees from Edlyn Foods recently participated in the Peter Maccallum ‘One Day’ to conquer cancer charity event, held on the 22nd of October. The event helps to raise awareness and money to support vital cancer research at Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre in Melbourne who treat thousands of cancer patients every year.
The one day event offers particpants the opportunity to ride 60kms or 100kms or walk 25kms, kicking off from Albert Park. Edlyn’s team of riders traveled the scenic route to Frankston and back, and whilst having to battle the rain, wind and cold temperaratures, many finished with fantastic personal best times. The team of Edlyn’s walkers traveled the picturesque route through St Kilda and up to Elwood Sailing Club and back again, all of whom also braved the elements and took motivation from the thousands of other participants in the walk.
With over 1,800 participants, the day raised over $1.7 million for the Peter Maccallum charity and a big congratulations to Edlyn’s team who raise over $23,000 and were in the top 10 fundraising teams for the event, a fantastic effort for all involved.
