Cancer Council’s The Longest Day is coming up and it is the par-fect opportunity to support South Australians impacted by a cancer diagnosis each and every day.

This endurance golf marathon is the ultimate challenge designed to bring the golfing community together to test their skill, strength, and stamina, while raising funds for Cancer Council’s research, prevention and support services.

Participating golfers will tee-off at participating Clubs on 12 December—the official longest day of the year. It’s a tee-rrific opportunity that we just KNOW you’ll want to be part of. Don’t just take our word for it—here’s what Shaun Holland has to say about his reason for signing up:

“This December I’m taking on Cancer Council’s The Longest Day challenge, because in one way or another cancer has touched all of us. I personally lost my sister at the age of 28 and am now watching my mother and stepfather go through a cancer diagnosis and treatment side effects. If simply playing 54 holes of golf can raise some money to assist families like mine in their hardest times, I’m all for it. Yes, it will be a struggle walking 54 holes of golf, that’s well over 20kms that will be fully walked, no cheating! But to put things in perspective, it’s absolutely nothing compared to the struggle those facing a cancer diagnosis have on a daily basis. I’m motivated and excited about being able to make a difference and help people. I know the financial burden of cancer is huge and I want to assist in any way I can, and this is it. I want to make it easier for other families.”

Shaun has already exceeded his fundraising target of $1,440—which will pay the bills, shopping and provide access to Cancer Council’s Lodge accommodation for 4 people.
