PA Research Foundation Duck Race Support The Duck, Stop Cancer

Motorama raises over $35,000 for cancer research

The PA Research Foundation ‘Support the Duck, Stop Cancer’ campaign has grown to become one of the premier events to bring the community together to raise funds for cancer research in Queensland.

Motorama proudly continues to be a major sponsor for the annual Support the Duck festival and we’re proud to announce that this year, the PA Research Foundation raised $405,529 to help the fight against cancer.

With the help of our customers, the teams at Motorama were able to raise over $35,000 for the Foundation.  It now brings our total fundraising efforts to over $200,000 since we first partnered with the PA Research Foundation.

The PA Hospital treats more than 120,000 cancer patients from around Queensland and northern NSW, and is now regarded as Australia’s busiest cancer clinical trials centre.

Motorama Team Champion Craig Moran rallied his team to a record fundraising total, and praised the entire group’s efforts.

“Everyone at Motorama really united to support the PA,” he said.

“It shows the commitment our team has to the community and making a difference. Overall, my team and I managed to raise over $16,000 which is just part of a fantastic result across the group.”
