Over the weekend of 17th and 18th of September, a Team of Campbell Page employees who operate in the Peninsula, participated in the Frankston Relay for Life.

The event was held at Ballam Park from Saturday the 17th until midday on Sunday the 18th, where the Peninsula Team not only participated in the event itself, but also represented Campbell Page as we were a major sponsor.

The Midnight Marathon is an activity that was held at the Frankston Relay for Life and Campbell Page was delighted to be the major sponsor of this activity. We contributed $300 to the winner of the marathon. – Sarah Ham, Peninsula Business Manager

Throughout the day, the group of Campbell Page employees operated a stall where they provided free career counseling and support to participants, and handed out over 100 free ‘showbags’  that contained healthy snacks. Additionally, direct registration was made available on the spot to eligible participants who were wanting to transform their lives through finding sustainable employment.

Frankston Relay for Life raised over $80,000 for the Cancer Council, which is a wonderful effort for our community. It feels good knowing that as an organisation we can contribute to something so beneficial to so many people. I have been asked to sit on the committee next year, which is a great honour, so hopefully we will also see Campbell Page participate in the event once more – Sarah Ham

Relay For Life is a fun and moving overnight experience that raises vital funds for the Cancer Council’s research, prevention, information and support services. Relay is a chance for the Frankston community to recognise and celebrate local cancer survivors, patients and their carers, to honour and remember loved ones lost to cancer and to raise money to help save more lives.

What a great demonstration on community spirit – congratulations to the Campbell Page Teams throughout the Peninsula!
