What an amazing turn out for the second Mater River to Rooftop—and some incredible stair climbing!
Thank you to everyone who did their personal best to help the fight against prostate cancer by climbing 1040 stairs! Not to mention the fantastic volunteers and of course those who donated their hard earned dollars to encourage our enthusiastic stair climbers.
Community support from people like you has been vital in helping research continue for many years.
So far you’ve raised an incredible amount but there’s still a way to go until we hit the $100,000 goal.
There’s still time to donate so don’t worry, you haven't missed the boat yet. Simply search for an individual or team and help Mater researchers fight the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australian men.
And now, the part you have been waiting for. Drum roll please.... your race times are here!
See you on the stairs next year!
