Our Community

Being involved in the community is important to us. The Jodi Lee Foundation is the main organisation we are committed to supporting. We’re very proud to be a part of their fundraising efforts to help support and educate people about screening to prevent bowel cancer. We also support some other fantastic organisations who are all working hard towards raising funds for important research and awareness in other areas.

The Jodi Lee Foundation (JLF)

The Jodi Lee Foundation’s mission is to empower people to take active steps to prevent bowel cancer and live healthy lives. Kennett Builders formed a corporate partnership with The Jodi Lee Foundation due to a close connection with bowel cancer. Recently retired, John Kennett’s mother, Jean, lost her life to the disease at the age of 58. Keen to promote early detection, John introduced the Foundation’s Workplace Prevention Program to our 45 employees in 2013. As a result an otherwise healthy 38-year-old employee discovered a concerning polyp which was removed, and he now has a plan to monitor and manage his health.

One of our major fundraiser events for the JLF is a special movie screening of ‘Solo – A Star Wars Story’. Join us on Thursday 7th June at 6.15 at the Regal Theatre for a fun movie night supporting a very important cause. Book your tickets here.

The JLF New York Marathon 2018 is a fabulous marathon that has grown from a Central Park race with 55 finishers to the world’s biggest and most popular marathon, with nearly 50,000 finishers in 2015. The iconic 42.2km course traverses the five boroughs of NYC with thousands of cheering fans and finishes in Central Park. Each year a Jodi Lee Foundation team runs the New York City Marathon. Join now for this once in a life time experience. Show your support and pledge to donate. You can find out more about the New York Marathon here.

“Over the past 8 months we have transported an average of 106 patients per month. Our fuel bill ranges between $800 – $1,000 monthly so we are more than grateful for Kennett’s support via Mud-N-Tars.”
