Where the funds go
The Founder Ben Roarty
About Ben The Founder
Camp4Cancer was originally founded and developed by Ben Roarty, after losing both his parents to Cancer over a short time. His passion to create an event that was close to my heart has now lead to an event which has grown every year and touched the heart of many lives. Having always helped out with many charities for many causes, once being touched personally by cancer Ben wanted to create an event where he could contribute any way he could to conquering cancer. With a great love of the outdoors he had a crazy idea to bring people together camping to raise funds for cancer research. Having spent some time at Peter Mac with his father, he wanted to make his idea come to life. After realising that one person can make a difference, BUT not without the help and voices of the masses. After pulling in a few friends and Wallan locals, C4C came to life. Having been fortunate to tour the incredible facilities of Peter Mac and after meeting some of the incredible Scientists working tirelessly to find cures for this dreaded disease. Knowing the funds we raise each year for the center, certainly leaves Ben and his dedicated committee proud of the event we run.
