Why fundraise for Breast Cancer Trials?

This year breast cancer is estimated to be the most commonly diagnosed cancer in Australian women. Every day 57 people are diagnosed, that’s 1 person every 25 minutes, and eight will lose their life to breast cancer. Together we can change this.

It is through the fundraising efforts of our Pink Champions that our clinical trials research is possible. Through their support, our research has successfully found, and continues to explore, better treatments for people affected by breast cancer. This includes early breast cancer detection, improved metastatic outcomes and breast cancer prevention. More funding means more trials – and more trials mean the sooner new treatments become available.

Become a Pink Champion Today

Compete in a fundraising marathon (or an event of your choosing) whilst supporting Breast Cancer Trials. Raise over a certain amount, and we will also deck you out in our bright pink apparel so you can stand pink and proud while you cross the finish line.

Entering a sporting event is a fantastic way to support clinical trials research. Being healthy and saving lives? It’s a win win!

Join one of our Breast Cancer Trials challenges! July 2023 marked our inaugural 100km Facebook Challenge and it was an incredible success! 8,279 registrations were received and most importantly, $957,920 was raised for breast cancer clinical trials research. This result is phenomenal, and we can’t express enough how grateful we are for everyone who made this possible.
