Thanks for a 'gold'en September!


Every September is an important time to champion Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and recognise the many children worldwide who receive a devastating cancer diagnosis every day.

Last month, Adelaide made a bold statement when local landmarks lit up gold in support, the local media shared our stories and you accepted our challenge to "Go Gold & Give" by increasing awareness and raising vital funds.

To celebrate the launch of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, eleven-year-old cancer survivor Jake undertook the Adelaide Oval roof climb experience with his mum, dad, sister and our mascot, Elliot.

Our goal for September was to raise $20,000 to help support hundreds of families in need.

The result was a month full of activity, everything from large to small fundraisers being run by businesses, schools and families. Every dollar made a difference from movie nights, holding a raffle, the ever-popular sausage sizzle or even hosting a donation tin.

Every dollar you fundraised and donated helped us exceed our target by raising more than $44,200.

An incredible effort...we couldn't do it without you. Thank you.

City-Bay Superstars


A huge thank you to the 200+ City-Bay fun runners and their generous supporters, as we raised an impressive $17,332, towards our $20,000 target.

Can you help keep our costs down?

We're in need of everything from basic pantry items and manchester sets in our accommodation units to toiletries in our Family Support Packs and books and art supplies for our Oncology Playgroup.

Perhaps you can add some additional items to your next shopping excursion or fundraise at the office to make some of the larger items a reality for us? We'd be so grateful for any contributions.

Wish List donations can be dropped at the CCA office during business hours, Monday-Friday, or get in touch on (08) 8239 1444.




CCA Ambassador, Travis Boak's family business, Rogers Underwear, gave 100% of its profits to the Childhood Cancer Association in the lead-up to Father's Day to support our Kids Oncology Playgroup.

This promotion was backed by Mix102.3 and saw many celebrities and local identities getting behind our cause, raising $7,515 towards the playgroup.
