This year we have chosen ENCORE as the recipient of our donation. This is a Cairns based 8 week program of exercises, guest speakers, information and relaxation techniques offered for free to women who have gone through breast cancer.

CAFE worker Bradley Edwards is taking the fast lane towards his Olympic dream.
Edwards, 19, has been selected in Australia's 4*100m sprint team to compete at this year's IAAF World Championships in Eugene, Oregon. He received the good news from Athletics Australia on Monday.
The Townsville North Star sprinter tore his hamstring in the lead-up to last month’s junior national titles, where he failed to seal a place in his pet 200m event. But his personal best of 21.41sec, combined with his fast-improving times in the 100m, saw selectors give him his relay nod. Edwards' current 100m PB is 10.85sec.
