Community events

Every year, thousands of passionate people take action to help Peter Mac's work by joining in a public activity organised by our friends and supporters. Whether you run, ride, cook, dance, sing or take part in one of the many other fundraising events and activities held each year to help raise funds, by nominating Peter Mac as your preferred charity, you can play a vital role in our work. The funds you raise will help give some of the brightest minds in cancer research the specialised tools and equipment they need to discover cancer cures.
