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.
