Well known Rochester sportsman Jesse Cuttriss has a burning desire to rid the world of cancer.
The past Rochester Golf Club champion and Rochester United cricketer said cancer touched everyone from friends to family, workmates to sporting mates.
As a result, Mr Cuttriss is gearing up to run the Melbourne Marathon in October to raise funds for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation.
‘‘My target is to raise a minimum of $3000 for the foundation,’’ Mr Cuttriss said.
‘‘Along with my wife Rylea, we will conduct a number of fundraisers before the run and already I have been supported by so many people who have sponsored me.’’
A strict training and dietary regime is assisting the 22-year-old who trains with Lockington-Bamawm and Echuca United football clubs.
A strong support crew is also supporting his preparation.
‘‘My main fundraiser is a golf day on Sunday, August 17, at the Rochester Golf Club,’’ Mr Cuttriss said.
The three-person ambrose event will be open to all comers, golfers and non-golfers, and promises to be a fun day while helping him to achieve his target.
