The Kids’ Cancer Project
Since 2009, The Kids’ Cancer Project has been Fitz’s Challenge official charity partner. Cyclists participating in this event have raised more than $350,000 to date for childhood cancer research.
Children with cancer face enormous challenges. The biggest is that treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation were designed for adults and are very harsh on small, growing bodies. Medical research is the key to discovering kinder, more effective ways to help them.
- More Australian children die from cancer than any other disease.
- This year, 950 kids will be diagnosed from all walks of life.
- 90 percent of children who survive cancer develop at least one chronic condition resulting from their treatment.
Raising funds for research is vital. Your support will help more children survive their cancer, improve current treatments and minimise the long-term effects.
