Girls’ Night In
Throughout October, incredible women around SA hosted almost 250 home and workplace events to raise awareness of women’s cancers, and donated the funds they would have spent on a night out to women’s cancer research, prevention and support programs. Well done to everyone who helped to raise $133,000!
Ride for a reason
In January, 265 cyclists made their Santos Tour Down Under count by raising funds for Cancer Council SA. 209 rode ahead of the pros in the Challenge Tour, while 55 riders took part in the first ever Distance Challenge throughout Tour Week. Thank you to every rider and every supporter who helped raise an outstanding $303,000 for cancer research, prevention and support programs. Thank you to the South Australian Tourism Commission and the Tour Down Under for your continued support.
Cancer Council’s Undies Run
On 21 January, an elite group of VIP fundraisers took part in the first ever Cancer Council’s Undies Run at the Strikers. They took on two laps of Adelaide Oval ahead of the Adelaide Big Bash League game in front of a crowd of thousands—raising an amazing $34,892 for bowel cancer research. Thanks to everyone who helped knock bowel cancer for six!
The March Charge
Throughout the month of March 1,027 South Australians took part in The March Charge, a 31-day personal fitness challenge fundraiser. By raising over $151,483 for Cancer Council, and by committing to reach their own individual exercise goals, every single March Charger helped tell cancer where to go.
Australia’s Biggest Morning Tea
Celebrating its 26th year, over 2,785 individual, community and workplace hosts raised their cuppa for a cause in May and June. We were thrilled to see a number of new workplaces get involved this year and also celebrate a number of hosts who had reached the special 10 milestone. Together, our wonderful hosts raised over $1.1 million for a cancer free future—and that’s everyone’s cup of tea.
