Laughter is the best medicine in Northern NSW

Camp Quality hosted their annual comedy night fundraiser, Comics on the Run, on the 3rd June at Sawtell RSL in Northern NSW to help raise money for children growing up with cancer.

This event has become a local favourite in the region and has been running for 9 years now, bringing together the whole community for a night of giggles, laughter and giving.

In 2017 an all-star line-up graced the stage, from our MC Barry McLeod, to Sarah Levett, Brett Nicholls and our headline act Tommy Dean.

The night went on to raise $18,000 which will ensure that Camp Quality can continue to make 'laughter the best medicine' and give every Australian child impacted by cancer every opportunity to thrive in the Northern NSW region.

Comics on the Run would not be possible without the ongoing support from the Coffs Harbour community and our Major Sponsors Unreal Estate, Crowe Horwath, Coffs Coast Focus, Park Beach Plaza, Couper Lawyers and Mike Blewitt Ford. We can’t thank you enough!

The local community already cannot wait for the amazing 10th year event in 2018, which will no doubt go on to provide bigger and better jokes, as well as fun times for all. In the meantime, why not check out a couple of happy snaps from the evening in our gallery below!

About Camp Quality

Camp Quality believes every Australian child impacted by cancer – be that their own diagnosis or the diagnosis of someone they love – should have every opportunity to thrive. We do this by providing innovative programs and services to develop life skills and strengthen the wellbeing of children aged 0 – 13 growing up with cancer, and their families.

We are there for children and their families from the first experience of cancer through every stage, from treatment to remission and in the case of bereavement - in hospital, at home, at school and away from it all. Our belief in the proven principles of positive psychology forms the foundations of everything we do. We believe laughter is the best medicine. Laughter and optimism are essential to help our kids and their families not only cope, but thrive.
