Dear Supporter,

September is International Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

We want to show children with cancer, and their families that they're not alone in their fight.

Our goal is to raise $20,000 this month to help fund home tutoring, which is one of 30 support services made available to children with cancer, and their families by the Childhood Cancer Association.

We hope you will join us by taking part in one of our fundraising initiatives listed below.

Adelaide lights up GOLD for Childhood Cancer

Adelaide landmarks will join a global initiative by lighting up GOLD on Friday 1 September in support of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

By ‘going gold’, iconic landmarks, including Adelaide Oval, Government House, the Riverbank Footbridge, the Adelaide Railway Station building, and the Town Hall balcony, will show their support for more than 400 local families affected by cancer.

Share your pictures on social media of these iconic Adelaide landmarks going gold - by using the hashtags #childhoodcancerassociation and #gogold.

Each year in South Australia, the Childhood Cancer Association receives an average of 60 referrals for children newly diagnosed with cancer.  In addition to this, an average of 10 children relapse and 8 children pass away in South Australia every year.
