A chance to remember Chalky Carr at the public launch of the Chalky Carr Trust and a gala dinner to raise funds for people who are bound together by cancer.
Date: Saturday 24 March 2018 Venue: Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu
Kevin “Chalky” Carr the former All Black’s Logistics Manager, Royal Marine Commando and Royal New Zealand Navy Officer, loving husband and father died of pancreatic cancer earlier this year. Prior to his death an ‘attitude of gratitude’ and determination to make a practical difference motivated Chalky to raise money for people whose lives are being affected by cancer.
Chalky was a brave, determined man – he was awarded the New Zealand Bravery Medal by the Governor-General for his actions saving lives at the CTV Building in the Christchurch Earthquake in February 2011.
All funds raised from the Gala Dinner will go to making a practical difference in the lives of people and families affected by cancer and to aid research into pancreatic cancer, one of New Zealand’s most common and aggressive forms of cancer.
