Dozens of people gathered on Sunday to celebrate the completion of the Build for Cure house that has become a labour of love as much as a fundraiser  for the Children’s Cancer Institute. 

Build for a cure ambassadors Scott Cam and Block winners, Brad and Lara Cranfield joined local families who have been affected by childhood cancer. 

“These people aren’t asking for a miracle, just the funds to make it happen. The institute’s determination is infectious and I encourage all Aussies to give generously.” Mr Cam said.
