    Each of these teams rose to the challenge and excelled in their fundraising efforts, where together, they raised a combined $28,952 during the competition period! This incredible amount will help fund local research projects, and information and support services to support South Australians impacted by cancer. 

    Each of these teams will receive a food hamper full of goodies and a heater to stay cozy and warm throughout the night (and early hours of Sunday morning!).
