2016 Wellard Star of the West Campdraft

The spectacle of a sport synonymous with outback Australia in suburban Perth is always a certainty to draw a crowd. The ninth annual Wellard ‘Star of the West’ Campdraft delivered for spectators and competitors all in the aid of raising funds for CLCRF.

The event drew together some of the State’s and country’s finest stockmen and women on horseback showcasing their skills from 25th to 27th November last year at the Boar Swamp Campdraft Club Grounds. With such a high calibre of riders, judges also travelled from interstate.

Campdrafting is a uniquely Australian sport dating back to the late 1800s and involves a horse and rider working cattle for the coveted title of the best stockhorse and rider. Points are awarded to the horse and rider for cut out, horse work and course completion from a possible 100 points.

A good campdrafter is not just a fine horseman/woman, but has the skill to select a suitable beast from a mob that will run well in the arena.

Following the main event on the Saturday, the evening was about catching up with friends, meeting people and having fun in a safe and friendly environment. In addition to a delicious free BBQ dinner, live music and a licensed bar, the awards of the day’s events were presented.

Donations of $3,300 were received from this event.

We would like to give a special thank you to the McLarty family for their generous hospitality, the Boar Swamp Campdraft Club and Wellard Group for their continued support.

Dance for a Cure 2016

Once again, the families of Perth turned out for the Children’s Leukaemia and Cancer Research Foundation’s annual Dance for A Cure event – held in Forrest Place, Perth, on Sunday 30 October 2016.

The Dance was supported by Channel Nine with event Ambassador, Lisa Fernandez, encouraging the community to get involved. Combined with our Patron, Justin Langer, in the official TV commercial, it proved to be a wonderful way for the community to hear about how they could join the Dance for a Cure.

Louise Momber, also from Channel Nine, was able to attend the official day and was very excited by the dancing and the energy the families brought to the event.

“Being involved in Dance for a Cure was such a highlight for me. I loved seeing the happiness on the faces of the participants – knowing they were making a difference to such an important cause and having so much fun at the same time!”, said Louise.

Each year we try to offer the people of Perth something new and fun for families to participate in with a very important message to highlight the need for more research into childhood cancer.

This of course takes lots of dollars and it’s with events like these that we can help fund more research. So the next time you hear about a CLCRF event, get involved and tell your friends because everyone who supports our events supports our research. Stay tuned for the next Dance for A Cure because it will definitely be different and fun!
