We had a fantastic night at the charity premiere of Alex and Eve movie. Thank you to our generous friends for supporting us. A special thanks to Doltone House for the wonderful food and Roses Only for the beautiful flowers.
We were very fortunate to have the Australian Tax Commissioner, Mr Chris Jordan, speak at our annual CEO breakfast. Mr Jordan spoke about recent changes at the Tax Department and then joined a Q&A session with former Federal Finance Minister, The Hon Helen Coonan and President of The Gut Foundation, Professor Terry Bolin. Guests were encouraged to take better care of their health and get checked for bowel cancer.
Congratulations to all the runners in our Treadmill Marathon, who raised funds for our bowel cancer prevention research project.
What an amazing afternoon! It was almost a battle of the banks, with teams from Citibank, Westpac, Macquarie and CBA racing each other to be 1st to finish 42.2km. Event sponsors, Kelloggs, put in a strong performance but it was AMEX who took out the winning trophy.
Alan Tongue and Mario Fenech, NRL Kick Bowel Cancer Ambassadors, joined us to cheer on the runners and present the trophy to the winning team.
Thank you to Kelloggs for sponsoring the event and providing samples of their new All Bran cereal.
A special thank you to Luca from Outrun Cancer, for his amazing fantastic efforts in organising the event.
