Since 1993 the Melbourne Reclink Community Cup has attracted the who’s who of the radio and music industries that give their time (and bruises) to raise awareness and funds for Australia’s most disadvantaged.
From humble beginnings in 1993, the Melbourne event now attracts more than 10,000 people and raises more than $150,000 for Reclink Australia annually.
The event’s success has been replicated in Sydney, Adelaide, and Fremantle, with Hobart and Brisbane joining the party for 2016 and Canberra in 2017.
