Our team is not just the 18 staff in our office. Our team is a coalition of the Australian and corporate community who share their time and resources to support a cure for childhood cancer.

As a small organisation, volunteers are vital to our success. Without volunteers, much of the work we do would not be possible.

Volunteering is a rewarding and effective way to become more involved at a grass roots level of the organisation. You will also meet new people, create new friendships, learn new skills or share your existing skills.

Join our team as a Volunteer and help us find a cure!

This involves things like contacting schools and businesses in your local area and asking them to get involved in campaigns like Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in September each year.
