The Great Cycle Challenge 2014

Hannah’s Chance Foundation
Since October 2007, Hannah’s Chance Foundation has been the passionate voice in the fight against sarcoma. Sarcoma is a type of cancer that predominantly affects young people between the ages 12 and 25.
There are various types of sarcomas, all of which are very aggressive and almost 50 per cent of sufferers do not survive. Hannah’s Chance Foundation aims to raise valuable funds for medical research into finding a cure for sarcoma.
The Foundation is also focused on helping to provide sarcoma patients and their families with comfort and support once they are diagnosed and on their journey.
QuickSelect supports Hannah's Chance Foundation.
Children's Cancer Institute
Every year more than 625 Australian children will be diagnosed with cancer. Every week nearly three Australian children will die of cancer. The vision of the Children’s Cancer Institute is 'Our organisation exists solely to put an end to childhood cancer. We don’t just hope to do it. We will do it!!'. A very determined vision and a vision that we share with them.
After four years of blood, sweat, trainers and perseverance, one of our top brokers, Rajesh Ladher, took the plunge and ran the Sydney Marathon in September 2014 to raise money for Children's Cancer Institute. This charity is close to our hearts, purely as the two words 'Children and Cancer', should not be in the same sentence.
Rajesh proudly completed the marathon with an outstanding time of 3:41 and to raise funds for Children's Cancer Institute.
Ovarian Cancer Australia
Each year in Australia around 1400 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer and more than 1000 will die from the disease. There is no early detection test for ovarian cancer and the symptoms include bloating and indigestion making it hard to detect. Approximately 75% of women are diagnosed at an advanced stage, where the cancer has spread and is difficult to treat successfully. But if ovarian cancer is diagnosed at an early stage, women have an 80% chance of being alive and well after five years.
After training for months, doing long hard bushwalks every weekend, Nermalee Bowe, one of our award-winning mortgage brokers, decided to put herself to the challenge and do the 7 Bridges walk (a whooping 27kms) in October 2014 to raise money for Ovarian Cancer.
Nermalee raised money which will be used to fund research
required in early detection of Ovarian Cancer.
