My Story

My dear uncle Marco died of cancer on the 11th of May this year. I will be running the City to Surf 14 kilometre / 8.7 miles race, which takes place in Sydney in August each year, in his memory. I began training a couple of weeks ago and am meant to go for five runs a week, although the 30 degree heat in London has made this a bit difficult this week.

I am raising money for the Oncology ward at the Prince of Wales Hospital in Sydney. All the funds I raise will go towards something very unglamorous that would make a huge difference to the lives of cancer patients at the hospital: two good commodes (basically movable loos). The ones that are there are quite humiliating to use and the nurses agree that replacements are long overdue. Professor Zoltan Endre, who treated my uncle, has sent me a quote for a pair of new ones, which come to a total sum of $2070 (about £1242). If I hit my target, the loos will be inscribed with the message Marco penned himself: "Enjoy this comfortable crap courtesy of me, Mark Colvin."

Thank you for your support,

L

UPDATE

A day and a half after sending out this link, two loos for Colvin have been paid for. I have been so moved by the generosity and kind messages of everyone who has donated. Please do continue to donate if you have not yet had the chance; all funds over and above the $2070 that has funded the two loos will go towards other essential equipment at the Prince of Wales Hospital.

Dear Friends,

We are humbled to say that this is the "Heartbreakers" Team 11th year of Fundraising for the Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation.

We are immensely thankful to our Major sponsors "Mortgage Choice", "Coogee Bay Hotel" and "FMayer Imports Pty Ltd" for their long standing support over these years and also importantly to all who donate towards the team members year in and year out.

This year Heartbreakers will be raising money to support the Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation’s 2017 Cardiac Monitor Campaign. “Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death in Australia with 45,000 deaths per year”.

The hospital needs to raise $1 million to purchase new monitors with significantly enhanced features to replace outdated equipment. As the leading hospital in NSW for cardiac services, this equipment is vital and will be deployed in the Stroke Unit as well as various Cardiac Units.

So please dig deep and sponsor your colleague, friend or family member by selecting the team member/s and then the "give now" button to donate.

We really need all your help so that we can reach our target
Thanks in advance!
