Scots boys raise $20,000 for cancer research

A group of 55 students from The Scots College's Glengarry campus rallied together to raise funds for Cycle for Cancer. Braving against the weather on Sunday 3 May, the group cycled for over four hours raising more than $20,000 for the cause.

Mr Mike Pitman, Director of Glengarry at the Scots College, who also competed on the day, said, "It was great to see the College community rally. I am very proud of the boys and their commitment to the cause. Despite the conditions and long hours, the boys never lost the smile on their face."

With a member of the Glengarry teaching staff recently diagnosed with Cancer, the campus viewed the relay style race as the perfect opportunity to show support while enhancing the boys' education in teamwork.

The race took place atop Kangaroo Valley at Fitzroy Falls on the property of ex-Olympian and Tour De France stage winner, Brad McGee. Following a morning of rain, the track state was not ideal with the muddy and wet conditions truly testing the dedication of the boys and staff involved.
