THRF Group

The Hospital Research Foundation Group

The Hospital Research Foundation Group fights against disease and illnesses by funding vital medical research and patient care services.

The Longest Table is The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) Group’s major cancer fundraiser each year. Together, we’re fighting for better health and wellbeing for our community through life-changing medical research and improved healthcare.

Since launching The Longest Table over 10 years ago, our community has raised over $2.8 million for cancer research. But we can’t stop here! Your support as a host of The Longest Table will help us fund more cancer research projects, improving and saving even more lives from cancer!

"In Honour of My parents"

Mardi decided to host a Longest Table to raise money for cancer research after both her father was diagnosed with breast cancer and her mother with uterus cancer.

“My parents are amazing, strong people and I appreciate them so much and wanted to do this Longest Table as a massive thank you and I love you!”

Mardi, The Longest Table host since 2022
