Victoria Police are about to launch a fundraiser for “My Room”. My Room is a part of the cancer Ward at the Royal Children’s Hospital. The Administration and Director of My Room are volunteers and no person gets paid for their work at the Royal Children’s Hospital. For those of you who know a child who has been in My Room you will be aware of the help they give to children living with cancer. Further details about My room can be found at www.myroom.com.au

As a part of the project sixteen Police will be walking from Wodonga to Melbourne from 22nd November to 28th November. The Police will stop in Beechworth, Wangaratta, Benalla, Mansfield, Yea and Whittlesea where there will be activities at each venue. The activities will include, fetes, carnival rides, sportsman’s night, Police bands, auctions and other charity events to raise funds for the cause. The final leg of the walk will conclude at Royal Children’s Hospital on Friday 28th November at 11 am with the Police showband, and activities on the day. Silvers Circus on the night will be selling tickets for the night show and all proceeds will be donated to My Room.

I have been selected to take part in the walk and will represent Police from the Western Suburbs. My motivator is a young 8 year old boy who is currently undergoing treatment for cancer and he is going to walk the last few kilometres with me subject to his health.

As a part of the project, I would hope that local services or businesses will get on board to support me. Support may include meeting me at the end of the walk, donations of merchandise that can be auctioned at one of our events or even a personal sponsorship for each kilometre I walk. As we speak, I have a pledge sheet and donation book ready to fill. You may have other ideas in which to be involved so please let me know.

If anyone knows of any business groups that wish to get on board, there is also an opportunity for corporate sponsors. At this stage, I have received generous support from the Western Rotary cluster group and Western Bulldogs Spirit West Services.

Should you wish to get on board and support me in any way, I am only to happy to speak to you.
