Boyce will once again field a team in the annual City2Surf challenge to raise money for the Burns Support Foundation.
Last year we had a record number of members in our team and raised a phenomenal $33,500 for this worthwhile organisation. We'd love you to join us this year - whether it's your first time, or you're a regular! Read below for details of how to sign up to the Boyce team.

Federal Treasurer, Joe Hockey, last night delivered the Coalition Government’s first Budget and unsurprisingly there were not many surprises. As has been the trend over past years much of the detail had been leaked prior to budget night.
The 2014-15 Budget focuses on the expenditure side for the longer term and includes two main revenue raising measures to address the forecast budget deficits, reducing the 2014-15 cash deficit to $29.8 billion, down by approximately $20 billion from the current $49.9 billion.
The Government has flagged expenditure savings in areas including foreign aid, education loan programs, and family and welfare benefits whilst increasing revenue through the reintroduction of the fuel excise indexation and a 2% increase in the highest marginal personal tax rate for a three year period through the introduction of a “Temporary Budget Repair Levy”.
