Boyce City2Surf challenge is on again
2 March 2017
The annual City2Surf challenge will take place on Sunday 13 August and once again Boyce is fielding a team to raise funds for a very worthy cause.
This year we will contunie to support ‘Amie St Clair Melanoma Trust’ – a charity that is dedicated to raising awareness of melanoma. The trust actively supports medical research and endeavours to provide better access to specialised care for the communities of the Wagga Wagga region.
Amie was only 20 years old when she was diagnosed with metastatic melanoma. In August 2007 she discovered a lump in her groin and went through numerous operations but it had spread too quickly. She battled long and hard for just over three years, trying every available treatment. On 9 November 2009, just one day after her 23rd birthday, Amie lost her battle with cancer.
The Amie St Clair Melanoma Trust has been created in her honour to educate and support families with regards to melanoma prevention and education.
Since 2008, Boyce has raised over $170,000 for charities through participation in the City2Surf. This year marks our 10th year of participation and we are ready and rearing to go and calling for your support once again.
If you are able to run, jog, jump, skip or walk the City2Surf course, then join the Boyce team for a great time! Our team members receive a free t-shirt, a post-race barbeque and drinks to celebrate the end of the race and great company along the way.
