Motorama Supports the Great Brisbane Duck Race

Posted by Motorama in Motorama News

Each year a great race takes place in Brisbane. This race puts rubber ducks head to head in the pursuit of raising much-needed funds for the PA Research Foundation and its cancer research.

This race is known as the Great Brisbane Duck Race! On Sunday October 20th, 40,000 rubber ducks will be lining up on the Brisbane River to hopefully win their ticket holders some great prizes.

The PA Research Foundation not only has contributed to the discovery of the world’s first cancer vaccine, Gardisil, the cervical cancer vaccine. The foundation also aids in running the Australian Prostate Cancer Research Centre and maintains a level of expertise in melanoma, breast, prostate, head, neck, lung, bowel cancers, as well as leukaemia and lumphoma.

It’s a long list, but their work doesn’t just stop there with over 1300 researchers working at the forefront of major health challenges. This year, for the third year running Motorama continues it partnership with the PA Research Foundation as the proud Presenting Sponsors of the Great Brisbane Duck Race. Mark Woelders, CEO of Motorama Group, says the team are invested in working with the Foundation to support groundbreaking cancer outcomes.

“ The PA Research Foundation is well recognised as one of the leaders in cancer research world wide. Since beginning our partnership in 2011, we have contributed $130,000 in support of the duck race for cancer research. This year, our internal target is to raise over $20,000 through our dealerships alone.”

The chances are that 1 in 3 Australians will know a family member or friend who is suffering from cancer.
