The Chewy Reds

Intensive training reaping rewards

As you can see from the attached photo, some intensive training has already taken place by the team. One month to go and we have our shirts ready - proudly emblazoned with the Chewy Reds 'JB' leprechaun emblem and Cancer Council Longest Day motif on the back. Someone remarked that old fart golfers come in all shapes and sizes, The Chewy Reds could in fact be a Russian doll going from small to extra large! The mind boggles. We are fast approaching $10K in sponsorship - thanks to everyone so far...we are pushing on and hope to get to $12K by December 17th!

We're taking on Cancer Council's The Longest Day...

...the ultimate golf challenge to complete four rounds of golf in one day. That's 72 holes!

We'll be testing our skill, strength, and stamina to raise funds for Cancer Council.

Almost all of us have very likely been touched by the impact of cancer, either personally,  through family members or friends.

Each of our team has their own story and motivation, and we all share one in common.

Our leprechaun golfer is the emblem of our dear friend Jonny Branagh, who valiantly completed this challenge 2 years ago on behalf of his team after we were originally derailed after 36 holes by 42c heat.

So if you can, please sponsor our team today, to make every hole count!

Thank you for your generous donation. Together, let's tee off for a cancer free future.

Thank you to our Sponsors
