Thank you from the Rob MacGregor Research Fund
than 400 family and friends attended a trivia night at the Castle Hill RSL,
Sydney on 11 February for the third annual fundraiser for the Rob MacGregor
research fund, honouring the life of Rob MacGregor who had his life cut short
by a pancreatic neuroendocrine carcinoma (NEC) in May 2014 is the initiative of
his supportive and loving family – Carolyn (mum), Anthony (dad) and sisters –
Alison Mackey and Christine Rutledge. Despite the tragedy of losing a beloved
son and brother, they have been committed to fundraising and improving
awareness of NEC with the support of the Unicorn Foundation. The Rob MacGregor
Research fund is unique because 100% of monies raised will be directed to
Australian research and projects related to the most aggressive type grade of
neuroendocrine cancers – NEC.
This year, the Unicorn Foundation is targeting
to reach $1m to put towards grant requests for Australian based
research into NET Cancers, we are very excited about this and the funds raised
from the 2017 MacGregor Trivia FUNdraiser will make a significant
contribution to this.
you to everyone involved in making the event a huge success. The amazing sponsors, prize donors, wonderful trivia master
Martin Van Eyk and his wife Gina and all the helpers that worked tirelessly
throughout the night to make the event a huge success that it was.
Unicorn Foundation is very proud to be working with Rob MacGregor Research Fund
and is overwhelmed by the community support for this and the amazing work
performed by Carolyn, Tony, Alison, Christine and their families who this year
raised an incredible $49,950. Well done and thank you.
