I’m a member of Maroochy North Shore Lions. But before I introduce myself properly, I want to ask you – Has anyone in your life been affected by a medical problem, a disease/virus, cancer or allergies?
Medical research benefits everyone at some stage of their lives, Everyone! This, and the way medical issues have affected me, is why my new project is so important and close to my heart.
My name is Nicole Carty, a proud Lions member going on 2 years, a Sunshine Coast local, an avid volunteer and now, a participant in the 2016/2017 Lions Medical Research Personality Quest.
The Personality Quest is one of the major fundraisers for the Lions Medical Research Foundation who fund researchers, each for a 3-year term to work on ground breaking medical discoveries.
The Personality Quest has a proud 50-year history with women focused upon raising funds in their community to assist in the funding of researchers and ultimately the saving of lives. To see more of what they do, start with checking out the Personality Quest and Lions Medical Research Foundation websites.
As an entrant in the quest this year, my goal is to raise as much money as I can, which goes directly to this foundation. To achieve my goal I need support from my community in all my fundraising and events. Over the coming 6 months I will be holding multiple events like Movie Nights, Family Fun Days, Sausage Sizzles, Trivia nights, Auctions and Raffles just to name a few (and open to all ideas). I have also created this donation page as many of my friends and family are in other states and may not be able to attend events.
My Quest Facebook page will post all upcoming events and give regular updates to family, friends and members of the community following my journey!
Feel free to share both this fundraising page and the Quest Facebook page as the more support from the community, the more money we can raise for medical research!
