Basketball Marathon 2022

Many years ago, 4 local schools combined together to become Forest Hill College in Melbourne. One of the PE teachers who was pivotal to the school and loved by all sadly lost his battle with Leukaemia. In his honour since his passing, the Basketball Marathon has been a well looked forward, annual event. For 24 straight hours we raise funds and awareness through a continuous games of basketball and it is always a hit!

The money that is raised will help provide care for those in need right now — and it will back the brightest researchers to continue uncovering faster diagnoses and better treatments to save lives all at the same time honouring and raising awareness to Leukaemia and those who lost their battles while standing and fighting with those who have been diagnosed.

Please show your support by donating to to this campaign.
