Corporate Golf Day 2013

On the 8th October 2013 at Joondalup Gold Course & Resort

Transport industry representatives and operators came together to help raise much
needed funds for diabetes research in WA..

WARTA and DRF have now joined toghether in a strong partnership to ensure research
continues into diabetes in WA. All funds raised will remain in WA for research projects
that have the best potential to find a cure for diabetes (like generating stem cells and
preventing diabetes) and ways to improve the lives for those who live with diabetes.

Thank you to all our sponsors for a very successful day and we look forward to building
on this great day in 2014.
