Moira Mac’s recently joined forces with Athletics Bendigo to become the new major sponsor for the inaugural “Run for Dad”, Bendigo’s own Father’s Day fun run held on September 3rd. Designed to raise much needed funds for the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, the 7.5km run and 3.75km walk was held at Bendigo Racecourse.
Moira Mac’s contributed a generous $3000 to the event in support of raising awareness of Prostate Cancer checks. Moira Mac’s financial controller Marc Smith highlighted the importance of making sure people get checks so things can be caught a lot earlier.
“Things such as prostate cancer are easier to treat if detected early on,” he said.
“It’s important men get their prostates checked so they can be around for their children and grandchildren.”
The fun and family friendly event also included a superhero costume theme to support the heroes fighting prostate cancer.
Over 250 runners and over 50 volunteers were involved in the 2017 “Run for Dad” event, a highly successful day in support of the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.
