Sporting Events for Cancer Research

Australia’s leading cancer scientists will depend more than ever on the support of the Australian Cancer Research Foundation to keep the funding up for their vital work, to get results in the race to find a cure for cancer.

Participating in charity marathons or an organised fundraising sporting event is not only lots of fun, but a great way you can help raise much needed funds for cancer research.

Whether you’re competing as part of a team or taking part individually, it’s as simple as registering for the sporting event and then asking your family, friends and colleagues to sponsor you. Plus a bit of training of course!

Did you know that a partnership between the Australian Cancer Research Foundation and Everyday Hero means you can create your own online fundraising page in minutes?

  1. Simply select the event you’d like to take part in
  2. Set a fundraising target;
  3. Create a fundraising page at the Cancer Research Online Fundraising Page or by clicking on the relevant link below (Don’t forget to select Australian Cancer Research Foundation as your chosen charity!); and
  4. Get everyone you know to sponsor you or your team by sending your fundraising webpage link out via email or posting it on your social networking sites.

Once you create an online fundraising page, just watch the momentum build. Before you know it, you’ll have your own fans, supporters and sponsors – all for cancer research. It’s that easy!

Online fundraising not your thing? Visit our Fundraise for Cancer Research page for further details on fundraising options.
