Start your own fundraising activity

Want to make a big impact in the fight against cancer? Organising your own fundraising event is a great way to help discover the next treatment breakthrough.

You could:

  • organise your own fundraising activity
  • join in one of our fitness challenges
  • take on your own unique physical challenge.

No matter what you choose, you’ll help give new hope to people with cancer.

Organise your own fundraising activity

Planning to hold your own event or activity to raise funds for cancer research?

Our fantastic fundraisers have organised some great activities – bake sales, trivia nights, cheese-tastings and even a firefighter stair climb! To help you reach your goals, we’ll give you expert advice and support along the way.

If you're not sure which fundraising activity to choose, we have some great ideas.

Do you already have a fundraising activity in mind?

Let's get started

Join one of our fitness challenges

Want to get fit while helping fight cancer?

Whether you choose to walk, run or ride, we’d love to have you in the team for an upcoming event. Check out some of our events and join the team.

Choose an event

Take on a personal challenge

Setting yourself a challenge is a really effective way to raise funds for cancer research. It might be physically demanding, outside your comfort zone or just plain crazy - but it will definitely be hugely rewarding.

We’ve had fundraisers go on a digital detox, climb mountains, and set themselves 8 week fitness challenges.

Whatever you choose to do, the best thing is to set up an online fundraising page to tell everyone what you're doing and make it easy for your friends and family to donate.

Fundraising hero spotlight

"I know what it’s like to sit in that chair, hear the dreaded word, and be overwhelmed with fear and desperation. And I know what it’s like to be given hope. Because of cancer research at Peter Mac, there are now improved outcomes for many diseases.

I want to raise one million dollars for cancer research so that other patients can also be told that because of cancer research their chances of staying alive have improved."
