Players visit ahead of 2023 Peter Mac Cup

24 July 2023

You may have seen the buzz around the building today as Carlton and Collingwood  football players visited ahead of the Peter Mac Cup. 

It's been 30 years since the very first Peter Mac Cup clash between the two clubs, the first bounce all the way back in 1993.

It's now the longest running charity match in AFL history - supporting the incredible fundraising efforts of the Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation.

The generosity and support from both teams blows us away every year - and this year was no exception, with seven players from both clubs touring around the centre.

They met fans in Ward 6A, Ward 3A, Clinical Trials, Radiation Therapy and the Chemotherapy Day Unit, plus and a quick stop in the labs to hear about research from Ryan Brown in the Hogan Lab.

Huge thanks to Nick Daicos, Darcy Cameron and Mason Cox from Collingwood, and Sam Docherty, Mitch McGovern, Brodie Kemp and Matt Owies from Carlton. 

We want his year's Peter Mac Cup to help us level the playing field when it comes to treating cancer.

Every dollar raised will help Peter Mac researchers make new world-leading breakthroughs that will help improve treatments, care and outcomes for people with cancer.
