Fight on the Beaches
Fight on the Beaches is a Northern Beaches based fundraising group whose aim is to fund Australian cancer researchers in the lab. Over the past 4 years, thanks to the support of the local community, Fight on the Beaches has raised in excess of $1.165 million through its annual ‘Christmas in July’ Charity Ball held at Miramare Gardens in Terrey Hills. This year the Ball will be held on 27th July 2018 and will celebrate 5 years of ‘Fighting for a Cure.’
Manly Touch recently presented a cheque for $1500 to Fight on the Beaches. Thanks to the generosity of the MWTA players at 2017 Senior State Cup in Port Macquarie, this $1500 will fund a cancer researcher, in their lab working to find a cancer cure, for a week!
Julie Randall - Patient 71, a long time Manly Touch member and who was the subject of a Channel 9 Sixty Minutes episode spoke of her fight to survive Stage 4 Melanoma at our recent State Cup dinner, and of her role as Ambassador with Fight on the Beaches. Julie has been a member of Manly Touch for over 20 years.
Fight on the Beaches is now Manly Touch’s 'Community Partner' and 'Primary Charity of Choice' for the next three years.
