FOUR friends are teaming up to raise funds for childhood brain cancer research while doing the Rottnest Channel Swim this month.

Hillarys resident Luke Pardini said it was his second time fundraising for The Adventurers, and his teammates this year were Courtney Armstrong, of Maylands, Miranda McCurry, of South Perth, and another Maylands resident Felicity Coupland.

“As a collective group, we have chosen to support The Adventurers on their quest to find a cure for childhood brain cancer,” he said.

“The team we are with now, everyone has had relatives that have been diagnosed with brain cancer.

“We’ve all seen the devastating effects that it has on not only the family member diagnosed, but the whole family.

“Unfortunately for kids who are diagnosed with a brain tumour, they aren’t given such opportunities to experience precious life moments.

“We would like to raise funds for The Adventurers to contribute to finding a cure for childhood brain tumour to allow kids the opportunity to experience precious life moments.”

Mr Pardini said their fundraising target ahead of the February 24 swim was $3000, which they were promoting through their Facebook page.

The electrician said while the swim was challenging, he was looking forward to when they finished it and raising the money for the charity.
