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.

Thank you for becoming a community champion

The stats around kids' cancer are devastating. You can make a difference by fundraising, and once you get started you'll be surprised at how easy it can be. We know it can be a daunting task the first time, so here you'll find thought starters to help you make the most of your fundraiser.


Helpful documents to get you started

Everything you need to get your fundraiser started, achieve your target, and access support from The Kids' Cancer Project team along the way.

Create Your Own

Free your imagination

Whether it's a trivia night or a sausage sizzle, a golf day or a personal challenge, sometimes the simplest idea is the most fun. Sign up to create your very own fundraiser! 

Celebration Donation

Giving back never felt so good

Lose Your Locks

Colour or cut for the cause

Shaving your head or getting a short crop is a great way to show solidarity for kids affected by cancer and to fundraise for childhood cancer research. Grab your mates and make this a team challenge! 

Bondi to Bronte

Make a splash!

This year it's not the traditional swim, this year you get to swim it your way. We want to provide open water swimmers with a unique opportunity. You’re invited to participate in a nationwide celebration of swimming at the location of your choice!

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!

Community Calendar

Whether you want to dress up, bake a difference, or just go crazy you can be a community champion by fundraising with The Kids’ Cancer Project. We’ll support you every step of the way in whatever you choose to do.
