Blackwood 8

This year in October 2012 400 magazines were donated to the event Blackwood 8.


Blackwood 8 is a team of local volunteers, passionate about making a difference in the lives of people, and their families, affected by cancer. We share a common bond of having a friend diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2007. As a community, we have sought to support our friend and her family in a variety of practical ways. But we recognise there are many more people in our wider community suffering from this disease, and we want to do more. This is why we formed Blackwood 8.

In 2007 and 2008 we raised $45,000 for the Ludwig Institute for Cancer Research in Melbourne.  In 2009 we raised $47,000 for the Cure For Life Foundation. The 2010 Celebration of Hope Gala Ball raised $42,000 for the Cure For LIfe Foundation.
