A group of Wagga tradies will ditch the tools for some golf clubs all in the name of charity at Wagga Country Club on Tuesday.
Tozer Constructions will be one of two Wagga teams tackling The Longest Day fundraiser at the Country Club.
The aim is to play four rounds of golf, 72 holes, on the one day. The four Wagga men are part of 1,888 golfers around the country taking to the fairways to raise funds for the Cancer Council.
Warren Clunes, Corey Tozer, Colin Clunes and Nick McCarthy will form Tozer Constructions' team and are looking forward to raising funds for a good cause.
"I saw it pop up on The Golf Show and thought it was a good idea," Warren Clunes said.
"Cancer is something that is pretty close to me and my family, we've had a few people that have passed away so it's a cause close to my heart.
"I'm not really cut out to run marathons so I thought this was a good way to try and contribute.
"It's a great cause. I think everyone knows someone that has been affected by cancer so it's a good chance to try and give something back."
The group plan to tee off at 6am and hope to be finished by about 6pm on Tuesday night.
"It will be good. I'm assuming it will be tough, we're going to play in carts, but it's still going to be fairly taxing on the body out in the heat," Clunes said.
The group will mix up the formats over the four rounds to keep things interesting.
They are also past half way in their goal of raising $4000 for the Cancer Council. Donations can be made via a link on the Tozer Construction Group's Facebook page.
A second team called Intheruff, headed by Aaron Turner, will also take to the course.
A team from Coolamon will also compete in their own The Longest Day on Saturday at Coolamon Sport and Recreational Club.
Cancer Council's community relations coordinator Christine Williams welcomed the support.
"The challenge is to successfully complete four rounds of golf from dawn to dusk and raise funds for Cancer Council's research, prevention and support services," Williams said.
"Everybody knows someone affected by cancer and this is a challenging, but fun way to raise funds for such a worthy cause."
