Making a difference in the lives of those in our local and wider communities
By August 2019, Reliance Foundation will have been operational for 3 years. Within this short time, employees of Reliance Real Estate have been continuously motivated and inspired to carry on contributing to the community and enriching the lives of those around us. We are a not-for-profit charity organisation created to make a difference in a variety of ways, through sponsorship donations, active involvement in community activities and raising awareness of countless causes and ranging issues from health research to sustainability promotion.
Currently Reliance Foundation has solid partnerships with multiple local schools and community groups and is always looking for further ways to support other organisations. Relay for Life is a well-known community event that is run all over Australia, helping raise vital funds in support of cancer research and assistance to those affected by the disease. We were looking for something to kick-start Reliance Foundation in 2019, and we thought what a fun way to help make such an impact, so here we are!
This cause is close to many people’s hearts as it continues to be an increasing reality for so many lives. Reliance Real Estate is looking to do whatever it can to help make a difference in a hope to speed up the process of eradicating this devastating illness, especially as it so closely affects some of our employees.
Given our industry, it seemed appropriate for our Relay for Life team name to be ‘List to Fight’, representing how funds directly from our sales are put into the Foundation charity fund and subsequently using these funds to support the fight against so many ongoing issues that affect the community. We are excited to come together as a team, spending quality time with one another in an effort to support the Cancer Council in providing invaluable services to so many across Australia.
Our fundraising goal for the event is $2000. This money will be able to support many areas of cancer care including providing important support and information resources to newly diagnosed patients, help transport patients to and from hospital for treatments, help the Cancer Council 13 11 20 provide free and confidential information and support on all aspects of cancer, provide free accommodation for patients and their families/carers during treatment, and helps pay overdue bills of cancer patients who have not been able to work.
If you’d like to get involved and make a donation, you can search our team name on the Relay for Life website by clicking ‘Donate’ and search List to Fight through the ‘Team’ search option. We will be appreciative of any size donation because every little bit counts!
Thank you in advance for all your support – it doesn’t go unnoticed
