Big hearted Wanderers get behind the cause

Show your love this Valentine's Day by supporting those who need it most.

Earlier this month, Wanderers Brendon Santalab and Steven Lustica helped the Westmead Medical Research Foundation (WMRF) launch their bigHEARTED Month campaign. 

The concept of month-long campaign is that instead of exchanging roses, cards and chocolates for Valentine’s Day, we should instead make a bigHearted donation that supports medical research and care at Westmead Hospital. 

Everyday, highly specialised researchers and dedicated medical staff at Westmead work hard to find new ways to beat diseases that affect our community and provide patients with the latest innovations in clinical care. 

Through the support of the community, the WMRF looks to raise funds to support critical research, care and treatments that impact and transform lives in the Western Sydney Community and beyond. 

Brendon Santalab, who is also a Ronald McDonald House Westmead Ambassador, said the concept of the campaign is one that everyone should be able to support. 

“I think the idea of encouraging people to swap Valentine’s Day gifts for a donation to the bighearted Month is great,” he said. 

“Both, men and women should join this campaign. It is for a good cause and every cent counts.” 

This is a great opportunity to get involved and help put common diseases like cancer and diabetes to the history books, where they belong!
