WE DID IT!!

The inaugural Fortix Volleyball Challenge was a success and we’re excited to do it all again in 2016!

It was a very hot day, but that didn’t stop brave people from great Western Australian businesses from joining us for an afternoon of fun competition on November 13th. We came to play and play we did! Not only did we have fun, but we were able to raise much needed funds for children’s charities, Sock it to Sarcoma! and Camp Quality.

A very big thank you to our Sponsors, Volunteers, and of course the participants for making it a great afternoon!

The funds you have raised go towards creating a better life for every child living with cancer in Australia. Camp Quality supports children and their families by building optimism and resilience throughout each stage of their cancer journey, and it is thanks the generous contribution from the 2015 Fortix Volleyball Challenge event that we can provide this.

Your spirit and sense of community is second to none and to have you all supporting Camp Quality is a blessing for our kids and their families. Thank you for digging deep and helping us achieve our vision!

All of us at Sock it to Sarcoma! would like to congratulate everyone involved with the Fortix Volleyball Challenge, particularly Volleyball WA and Fortix for creating such a wonderful event.

It was a true privilege to be part of such an energetic and fun afternoon and have the opportunity to promote awareness of sarcoma.

The generosity of everyone involved will help us to fund vital medical research into the causes and treatment for sarcoma, a rare and aggressive primary bone and connective tissue cancer that affects far too many children, adolescents and young adults.

A heartfelt THANK YOU! to everyone in helping us to Sock it to Sarcoma!

What if a member of my team does not turn up or is late?

We recommend that you communicate with your team prior to the event that they should arrive at the venue at least 30 mins prior to your first game, better yet travel together from the office so that you are all present and accounted for in preparation for your first game.
