Community Recognition Statement - Angus Mcinnes

Today I recognise Angus McInnes, a student at St Augustine's College - Sydney, for his most admirable fundraising for the 'Cut for a Cure' campaign to raise awareness and funds for brain cancer research at the Children's Cancer Institute.

Angus' older brother Isaac was diagnosed with an inoperable, rare and aggressive brain cancer in 2017 and passed away 10 months later at the age of 13, with Angus just 12 at the time. In the wake of such an unimaginable tragedy, Isaac's family set up a fund in his name to enable research at the Children's Cancer Institute into a cure for aggressive brain cancers. Now years later, Angus' efforts in the 'Cut for a Cure' campaign have meant the fundraising goal of $50,000 has already been reached and continues to climb! Students who participated in the campaign at St Augustine's can get a mullet, shave or dye their hair on the 24th June during school lunch. To Angus, his family and school community, I say thank you for your phenomenal fundraising efforts for the Children's Cancer Institute. We are so proud of Angus McInnes and his mates at St Augustine's - Sydney. You boys rock!
