1 in 2 Australians is diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85 according to the Cancer Council. ONE in TWO Australians!! That is a shocking statistic if we've ever seen one... As a result, the Cancer Council is on a mission to make a change.
Last Thursday, the 23rd of May, they brought over a million people across communities, schools, offices and homes together to raise money in support of their cause at Australia's Biggest Morning Tea.
It is a fun and rewarding way to fund research, prevention and support services for people suffering from cancer.
Last year, the event raised $11.9 million and were hoping to reach a staggering $13 million this year. It is the largest, most popular and most successful fundraising event that the Cancer Council Australia holds each year.
While we're proud to say we raised a solid amount of cash for the cause, we can hardly complain about a plethora of coffee, tea, cakes, cinnamon scrolls, etc. lingering around the office!
Have a peek below for pictures from the event.
