Sign up to make a difference

Australia has one of the highest incidences of childhood cancer worldwide. One in 500 Australian children will develop a cancer before 15 years of age — that’s 600 Australian children diagnosed every year. Childhood cancer is the single greatest cause of death from disease in Australian children, with three children losing their lives to cancer every week.

Every dollar you raise helps fund vital research into childhood cancers.

To date they have raised over $814,000 and travelled a total of 14,802 km.

The Child Cancer Research Foundation has been funding childhood cancer research for over 40 years.
