The invitation is from Richmond Valley Council Mayor Robert Mustow who will join Trevor on his marathon walk from Casino to Kyogle to present to invitation to Cr Mulholland at the Kyogle Bazaar on Sunday 23 September about 11am.

Trevor hopes his walk will inspire and bring both the Richmond Valley and Kyogle communities together at Casino & Surrounds Relay For Life to celebrate cancer survivorship, remember loved ones lost and empower teams of families, friends and colleagues to raise money to fight back against cancer.

Richmond Valley Mayor Robert Mustow, a survivor of a melanoma scare, said it was a privilege to be joining Trevor on his walk to raise awareness of cancer while supporting the Cancer Council’s 2019 Casino’s Relay for Life.”

Kyogle Council Mayor Danielle Mullholland described the marathon walk as a tremendous personal achievement for Trevor.

“Everyone has been touched by cancer at some point in their life and Trevor is highlighting this very important issue. I hope everyone will turn out to support him,” she said.

Relay For Life is a community fundraising challenge for Cancer Council. Teams of friends, families and colleagues raise money in the lead up to an overnight event, where team members take turns walking around a track to signify that cancer never rests.

The funds raised at Casino Relay For Life help Cancer Council NSW support local residents in the Richmond Valley affected by cancer through vital research, prevention, information and support services, so no one faces a cancer diagnosis alone.

Trevor said people signing on for the Casino Relay For Life people were helping the valuable work of Cancer Council NSW.
