An important message from Shuey and Gaff:
This year's Dig Deep campaign has raised an outstanding $101,833.15 for research into better ways of detecting, treating and defeating cancer.
The grand total would not be possible without the support of our proud partners, West Coast Eagles, Caltex, The West Australian and the generous WA community who purchased Dig Deep merchandise in Caltex stores, during the derby match between West Coast and Fremantle on August 5, and bid in the Dirty Boots online auction.
The West Coast Eagles have been supporting us since our partnership began in 2005, helping us to raise funds through the annual Dig Deep Campaign.
This year, Dig Deep will be celebrating its 14th year, and to date has raised over $1.3 million for us.
Last year alone, Dig Deep raised a fantastic $77,000, which went towards a research fellowship awarded to Professor Daniel Galvao for his work developing a survivorship program to improve health outcomes after cancer through exercise.
The funds raised also helped support Dr Carolyn McIntyre's research into exercise as medicine in the management of mesothelioma.
