Help fight cancer this National Science Week by hosting a Schools Against Cancer event

FundraisingThis week is National Science Week and the perfect opportunity for your school to fundraise for cancer research!

Running until 24th September, National Science Week is an annual celebration of Australia’s ground-breaking work in science and technology, including breakthroughs in cancer diagnosis and treatment. Australian scientists are often at the forefront of cancer science discoveries, such as the development of the HPV vaccine, which has been proven to reduce the risk of cervical cancer.

The ACRF is dedicated to funding world-class research into treatments, diagnosis and cures for cancer. Your school or class can show support for the important work of researchers and scientists by holding a Schools Against Cancer event – and help fund the next big cancer breakthrough!

We have a number of great ideas for fundraising events. For example, you could conduct some fun science experiments in the classroom with ACRF-supplied props, or hold a Scientists & Superheroes mufti day. You could also combine fundraising with cancer education by holding a Mad Hat Day and promoting the importance of sun protection. Click here for more inspiration, or come up with your own ideas!
