Official charity partner
2019 marks ten years of partnership between The Kids’ Cancer Project and Fitz’s Challenge. In that time cyclists participating in this event have raised more than $350,000 for groundbreaking childhood cancer research.
Children with cancer face enormous challenges. The biggest being treatments like chemotherapy and radiation which are designed for adults and are very harsh on small, growing bodies. Scientific research is the key to discovering kinder, more effective ways to help them.
- More Australian kids die from cancer than any other disease.
- The average age of a child diagnosed is 6 years old.
- 90 percent of those who survive develop at least one chronic condition as a result of their treatment.
Your generous support of childhood cancer research will ensure that more children survive their cancer without needing to suffer long-term side effects.
