About Pirate Day

Pirate Day is an annual national day of dressing up to raise awareness and much-needed funds for childhood brain cancer.

Funds raised on the day are allocated to scientific studies to find better treatments and ultimately a cure for the disease through the Pirate Ship Foundation and The Kids’ Cancer Project

Where the funds go

Funds raised through 2020 Pirate Day will be directed specifically to a study lead by Associate Professor Joshua McCarroll, Team Leader of the Gene Therapeutics and Drug Delivery group at Children’s Cancer Institute and the Australian Centre for NanoMedicine, UNSW. Get to know more about Joshua’s research.
