Inspiring stories

  • "We asked ourselves, 'why wouldn't we do it?' and when we couldn't think of one reason not to, we signed up straight away."

  • To support his 12-year-old sister who was going through chemo for a rare form of cancer, Jordy decided to shave his fro before she lost her hair.

  • Inspired by the loss of their best friend and sister, Johana and Celine decided to cut off their beloved locks to help women going through cancer treatment.

  • "I love tea and so did my mum. I drink it every day, first thing in the morning, on my breaks and in the evening." Gemma decided to go without tea for a whole month in memory of her Mum.

  • "My cousin and best mate died from bowel cancer in January - two weeks shy of his first wedding anniversary. To honour his memory, I set myself a goal to run 1000 miles before Christmas Day."

  • From giving up talking, his clothes, and his bed - you name it, he has given it up to raise much needed funds for cancer research, prevention programs and support services.

  • William Edwards

    "I did my first run with my Daddy. 5km is a long way for a 7 year old but I wanted to raise money for my Poppy who has had lots of cancer.  Maybe my fundraising can help them make him better and help others who have cancer."

  • Wilson Family

    "Cancer has touched our lives too often and now two people in our family are affected.  This is why our family teamed up to raise money to fight this disease so no one else suffers like we are now."

Fundraising Tips

  • Contact your local media

    Call up your local newspaper and let them know what you are doing – if they run an article on you be sure to include your supporter page link so people can donate easily.

  • Ask your colleagues

    To sacrifice their morning coffee just 1 day a week and instead for them to give the money they would have spent to your supporter page.

  • Share socially!

    Link your Instagram account to Twitter and Facebook so that when you upload a photo all your friends across all your networks can see and enjoy it.

  • Update your fundraising page!

    Keep your donors and potential donors updated with your progress, how is the fundraising going? What obstacles have you come across, what are you really enjoying etc.

  • Tell your story!

    Let supporters know WHY you are doing what you are doing, they want to know – share your passion.

  • Match giving

    Ask your employer if they have any match-giving schemes or if they are willing to donate to your supporter page – it may be tax deductable and a large one-off donation can be really motivating.

    Add photos, videos and comments to let people know what you’re doing and why? They want to know your story, so share your passion!
