They've helped in raising more than $1 million for Ronald McDonald House Charities but the Hunt family aren't done yet.
Their fundraising efforts have been more recently boosted by the Oxley College community with a special event set to kick off today (June 3) and continue to June 4.
The Hunts are just one of many families to have benefited from the charity after their youngest member Emily was diagnosed with a rare brain cancer called atypical teratoid rhabdoid tumour (ATRT).
Since the diagnosis in 2019 the Hunts, as well as their two other children, have spent a total of 149 days in the Ronald McDonald House near Westmead Children's Hospital.
Mrs Hunt said having the charity assist them through Emily's treatment, especially at the beginning, made all the difference.
"It was keeping us all together," Mrs Hunt said.
"One of the things we'd been told, for the whole family, was wherever possible try and keep normality, particularly for our eldest two.
"They had a space, it wasn't a hotel, it was a place where people knew them, said hello to them by name, asked about things that were going on. It just made it so much easier.
"All of the kids have celebrated birthdays at the house at some point in time."
It was, as Emily called it, "a home away from home."
The sheer level of support received was what inspired the Hunts to get involved in raising money for Ronald McDonald House.
They are currently still raising money for the Dance for Sick Kids campaign, one that has raised just over $1.1 million nationally.
Dance for Sick Kids was held during May and encouraged people to commit for a week-long period, dancing every day to raise awareness and funds.
Emily, for whom dancing is second nature, has raised over $13,000 herself.
Fundraising is extended for this week after a Highlands anonymous donor pledged to double the amount raised locally - up to $10,000 - between Midday June 3 and Midday June 4.
Mr Hunt said it was a cause that desperately needed support.
"We were very fortunate to end up at Westmead because the Westmead Ronald McDonald House is state of the art," he explained.
"It's excellent, which is what should be provided for every single facility. Just because you live in a certain area should not mean you should not have access to the best.
"The fact is we have an individual who wants to so generously support this campaign, it's to support excellence to provide for kids.
"That's why we're very happy to champion this cause because we experienced first-hand how amazing it is when you're going through pain. You need a bit of comfort and a bit of assurance and that's what they give, amazing staff, amazing volunteers."
Mr and Mrs Hunt, who both teach at Oxley College where Emily attends, have been blown away by local support during an unthinkably difficult time.
Oxley students led fundraising campaigns during May and have also been an emotional support to the entire Hunt family.
The college community raised $6000 for the cause during May with $2000 of this was raised by senior students selling baked goods.
"There has also been a lot of dancing at Oxley," a college spokesperson said.
And in another fundraising push students will strive to boost the coffers with their Kindergarten to Year 12 school disco on June 4.
In fact, the last fundraising push will begin from midday today (June 3) with the hope of attracting sponsorship from family and friends. Meanwhile all students will make a donation to enter the disco and this money will also go to Dance for Sick Kids.
"It's phenomenal," Mr Hunt said.
"Oxley talks a lot about community but it's when you understand the reach that a community has, to be able to engage with generously supporting so many different things, you see that there's real power in a community to love and to help. We've experienced that in phenomenal ways.
"The number of people who have provided for us, and given practical as well as incredible blessings of support, is ridiculously amazing.
"At the heart of Oxley is kindness. It's where Em can, with her beautiful growing hair, be comfortable.
"She's accepted and kids are kind to her as she's going through her recovery."
