Community Fundraising

We are so grateful when ordinary people in the community hear our urgent plea and act by stepping up to help raise money for childhood cancer research.

Every dollar you raise will be doubled!

The stats around kids' cancer are devestating. But you can make double the difference by fundraising with us this September and October. That's right, every dollar you raise for kids' cancer research will be matched by our generous community of partners and major donors up to 31 October 2020. 

Celebration Donation

Giving back never felt so good

Celebrate your next birthday or anniversary by asking friends, family and colleagues to give a life-saving donation. Follow the easy steps to start fundraising here

Reps for Research

Crunch or curl for a cure

Your challenge is to do 950 repetitions over the course of one week. That's one rep for each Australian child diagnosed with cancer in a year. Ask family and friends to sponsor you so your reps count for kids with cancer!
