Clubs' cancer challenge THE Inner West Courier is giving local sports teams the chance to win one of seven professional strength and conditioning coaching sessions, in conjunction with Cancer Council's Call To Arms fundraiser. By simply signing up and taking part in Call To Arms at www.calltoarms.com.au your team will go in the draw. Call To Arms is one of Cancer Council's annual fundraising events that offers male sporting groups of all ages and codes the opportunity to help raise funds and build awareness of cancer -- a disease that affects one in two Australian men by age 85. Sporting clubs are invited to hold a Call To Arms match where players wear a yellow armband in a show of support to men who have survived cancer, those fighting can- cer, and to remember men who have lost their lives. Clubs are encouraged to run fundraising activities. The competition is open until July 31. If your team has registered, or has already held your Call To Arms match you're already in the draw.
