The local legends who deserve to win these awards are working tirelessly within their communities, driven not by recognition but by a passion for reducing the impact of cancer. The Community Chosen Supporter Awards are a great opportunity to recognise this unsung hero that exists within every local community.

In your entry, make sure you include detail as to why your chosen individual or team should win that award, as this will be how we determine the finalists. Also, please double check the contact details are correct because we’ll need to reach the finalists to invite them to the awards night in Sydney.
