‘Reach Out’ and Join the Relay for Life 2014

daffoldilAs we hit the final stretch of 2013, we know many Mudgee residents are starting to purchase their 2014 calendars, and have started writing important dates into their new diaries.  Well, while you’re drawing love hearts on your anniversary or cakes on your family members’ birthdays, make sure you add in a large daffodil on May 3, 2014!  Mudgee & Districts Relay for Life is coming, and now’s the time to jump on board to show your support for the Cancer Council by helping to make the 2014 Relay a huge success.

The 2012 Mudgee & District Relay for Life won the ‘Community Event of the Year’ at the Australia Day Awards… an absolutely sensational effort, and one that deserves much praise.  It’s wonderful to know that we have such a dedicated group of local people doing such wonderful things for those suffering in the community.  Perhaps buoyed by the success of the 2012 Relay, the committee have this year raised the bar.  The target for the 2014 Relay is to have 60 teams registered, and to raise $150,000.

While this may seem ambitious, it is certainly achievable with community support.  There are already 15 teams registered to go, and a total raised (so far) of nearly $4,400.  Not bad when we’re still almost 5 months away from the starting line.

Register your team now by clicking over to the Relay for Life Mudgee & Districts webpage, and please note the next information night will be held at Club Mudgee on February 26.  For more information you can also contact Christina Caughey (Teams Coordinator) on 02 6378 2730 or via email at Christina.Caughey@midwestern.nsw.gov.au.  Make sure you take advantage of the early bird discount by registering now, and pay just $15 per person.

Our Professionals Mudgee Real Estate team will continue checking in to see how the totals are going for this fantastic community event.  We hope to see the tally skyrocketing very quickly with support from all our Mudgee friends.  All you need to do now is to create and register your own team, and start brainstorming some fundraising ideas.  Don’t forget, they’re aiming for 60 teams, so please help to spread the word by sharing this post with your friends, family, co-workers and bosses.  Let’s get all Mudgee businesses and families on board!

Relay For Life 2012 Wrap Up

The 2012 Mudgee and District Relay For Life in May 2012 was a tremendous success and now that the final tally has been calculated, we’d love to thank all of the locals, friends, family and even people from interstate who have kindly donated money towards our fundraising efforts.

Our Professionals Mudgee team came close to raising $4,000 dollars of the overall $169,367.28 that was raised in the Mudgee region. The region’s goal of $75,000 was more than doubled in actual fundraising, and what an amazing effort by everyone involved – a whopping 66 teams!

Just to recap, in mid May and with a great crowd of 868 people we were off and walking, even in the brisk air of a Saturday and Sunday morning, and we were pumped about the funds we’d raised for the Cancer Council. We were entertained, and certainly kept on our toes throughout the entire event. Our legs have well and truly recovered now and we’d like to offer a massive “congratulations” to the organisers for making it such a successful event.

We’d love to see these efforts continued next year and hope to see all the friendly faces from this year at the next event. We’ll keep you posted with details on the I Love Mudgee blog and facebook page!

Update on Mudgee Relay for Life 2012

We’re coming a strong 8th out of 52 teams taking part in the Mudgee Relay For Life on May 12th 2012, but we’re not quite at our fundraising target yet, so we’re asking for support by the way of sharing this with your family and friends or kindly donating as much or as little as you can to our team’s fundraising efforts.

We have been very humbled by the kind contributions that not only have our local counterparts donated, but also our wider networks across much of the country. It means a lot to have the support of our networks of friends and family, and we thank you all very much for your generosity.

One of the great things about having such a wonderful community behind us is knowing that all the efforts we go to to raise funds, it is ultimately our beloved community that is helping the Cancer Council find ways to manage and research cancer and help cancer patients.

There would be few people in Mudgee who don’t know someone who has been affected by cancer of some type, so it’s something that we know is close to the Mudgee’s community’s heart. Together we can help kick cancer’s butt, so again, we thank everyone who’s shown their support thus far, and ask anyone who can, to share this post, or donate to our team!

Mudgee Relay For Life 2012

It’s on again this year; the Mudgee Relay For Life! We’re keen to get as many people involved as we can and whilst there are already a number of registered teams we’d love to see more Mudgee support, whether by way of donations, spreading the word or participation.

The February information evening had a great turnout, and we’d love to encourage anyone who is participating or just wanting to know more about the event to come along the March information session being held on the 7th of March 2012 from 6pm at Club Mudgee Soldiers Club, 99 Mortimer Street. There are monthly information sessions leading up to the event that takes place on the 12th of May 2012.

Early bird registrations are being accepted until the 27th of April 2012 for just $15 per person, and $20 thereafter. The Relay For Life is a great way to show your support for the Cancer Council and the work that they do, as well as see great parts of the Mudgee Region.
