Don’t just take our word for it though
Coming on board as a strategic partner to the Foundation in 2021, Club Central have committed to supporting SSMRF for the next three years. Through the Club Grants programme, Club Central support all SSMRF’s major campaign and events including Red for Research, the Beachside Dash and our annual golf day. Funding from Club Central also allowed SSMRF to build and launch a new website in November 2021.
Over the last few years, Austbrokers SPT have been regular supporters of SSMRF. As the Covid-19 pandemic caused 2021 & 2020’s editions of the Beachside Dash to go virtual, Austbrokers have continued to sponsor the event and enter virtual teams to fundraise for the Foundation. As well as attending our annual golf day in 2021, Austbrokers SPT also donate monthly to the Foundation.
Through the Club Grants programme, Ramsgate RSL continues to be a supporter of SSMRF and their annual Beachside Dash. The last two years have seen Ramsgate RSL and their team complete a walk for research between their Club and St. George Hospital raising funds for vital medical research. Ramsgate RSL also supports the Foundation’s annual Red for Research Campaign by fundraising through events held at the Club.

St George District Cricket Club Charity Walk
In November 2020, the St George District Cricket Club hosted their 7th annual charity walk to help raise awareness and much needed funds to SSMRF. Club President and Georges River Mayor, Kevin Greene and his wife Frances lead the walk each year. Last year’s walk started at Hurstville Oval and the U21 team commenced T20 double header against Sutherland. The walk covered 20kms through Hurstville, Allawah, Carlton, Oatley, Peakhurst, and Penshurst before returning to the Hurstville Oval in time for the 1st Grade game at 2:30pm. We are extremely grateful to the Club for their continued support.
Michael Tynan Challenge
In 2020, participants battled through various challenges to continue its 5th year of supporting local medical research. Challenges included a spectacular coastal walk from Otford through to Bundeena and a virtual challenge where you could walk, ride or swim to reach your 30km goals in 24 days. Through the support and funds raised by the Challenge, the Foundation has been able to raise much needed funds for vital medical research in both St. George and Sutherland hospitals. Unfortunately, due to restrictions in 2021, the next challenge has been postponed to 2022 but we cannot wait to see what fantastic events and challenges are held to support medical research.
St George Dragons – 50/50 Raffle
Over the last few NRL seasons, the St. George Dragons have selected SSMRF as one of their charity partners and beneficiaries for the 50/50 raffles. Attendees of Rounds 1 and 13 in the 2021 season bought raffles tickets at the match with 50% of the total raised going to one lucky winner at each game and the other 50% going to the Foundation. Thanks to the generosity of the Dragons’ fanbase we were able to raise almost $3,000 for medical research.
