A special charity day will be held at The Forum University this Sunday, to help save a life.

In 2008, Forum staff member Matt Storey was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma and after many rounds of chemotherapy and radiotherapy as well as two bone marrow transplants, all curative measures have been exhausted.

Now at just 23 years of age, Matt needs a drug called Brentuximab to help keep him alive. This drug will cost more than $160,000 so his workmates decided to hold the Matt-a-thon to help raise some funds.

Matt has been a part of The Forum team since 2002 and works as a lifeguard, swim instructor and swim coach.

The Forum hopes to raise $40,000 for Matt and his family.

The Matt-a-thon event will be held from 10am on Sunday 18 November 2012 and will include a group fitness class, barbeque lunch and pool activities.

Members, staff and associated businesses have also contributed more than $8,000 in prizes for the giant Christmas Raffle.
