Childhood Cancer Awareness Month

In September, we honour children with cancer and the community supporting them.

Shine a spotlight on this devastating disease in September 

Seventy per cent of Australians are unaware that more kids die from cancer than any other disease in this country. With awareness, comes support. Government funding only stretches so far so it is vital the community step up to help fund the scientific research so urgently needed. Here are some ways you can get involved to shine a light on childhood cancer research.

The Better Challenge

Join us this September as we run, walk or roll 90kms throughout the month to raise money for kids' cancer treatments that are kinder, gentler, more effective and BETTER. Learn more.

Virtual Tribute

Register and join us on Friday 17 September to honour kids currently in treatment, those who have survived and precious ones who have passed away. Learn more.

Gold is the signature colour for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Gold is a precious metal and is a symbol of solidarity with children and families affected by this disease. Buy ribbons.
