Rendezvous Hotel Perth Scarborough supports local charity ‘Jog for Jugs’

October 8, 2014 Charity No Comments Email Email

While hotel teams generally take more steps than the average Aussie, attending to the needs of their guests, the team at Rendezvous Hotel Perth Scarborough will be going one step further on Sunday 26 October, when they’ll don their runners for the annual ‘Jog for Jugs’ charity initiative.

Now in its fourth year, the annual ‘Jog for Jugs’ initiative was established by Peta Burton to help fund the fight against Breast Cancer. ‘Jog for Jugs’ has raised more than AUD $30,000 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation and Breast Cancer Network Australia, with events now held simultaneously in Western Australia, Queensland and Northern Territory.

Matthew Richardson, Rendezvous Hotel Perth Scarborough Hotel Manager, and Director of Operations, WA, NT, SA and NZ Emilio Fortini, will lead the charge along the Sunset Coast for the five-kilometre event.

“It’s truly a privilege to be in a position to support such a worthwhile initiative as ‘Jog for Jugs’, and here’s hoping the Scarborough community will join us on 26 October,” said Matthew.

“Peta and her team should be commended for not only helping to raise money for breast cancer research, but also for raising awareness of the prevalence of breast cancer across Australia.. According to the Cancer Council of Western Australia, one woman in 10 is expected to develop breast cancer.[i] If ‘Jog for Jugs’ spurs even just one woman to have a screening test, that would be a significant achievement for the campaign,” he added.

In addition to sponsoring ‘Jog for Jugs’, Rendezvous Hotel Perth Scarborough will offer a $25.00 buffet breakfast special for event participants on 26 October, with all proceeds to be directly donated to the charitable cause.

Furthermore, the team at Straits Café, the hotel’s signature dining outlet, will wear pink ‘Jog for Jugs’ t-shirts the weekend of the event with campaign t-shirts available for purchase for $25.00 each.
