Our charities

Run for a cause close to your heart and help raise money for one of our four WA charities. 

Cancer Council Western Australia

As the leading independent cancer organisation in the state, Cancer Council WA is fighting cancer from every angle. By funding world-class research, running prevention programs and offering support services, we are bringing the defeat of cancer closer all the time.

However, as a non-government organisation we rely on community donations to carry out this work. Each donation you make will help us continue to support all West Australians affected by cancer, when they need it the most. We couldn’t do what we do, without you!

Diabetes WA

For over 50 years Diabetes WA has provided vital support for Western Australians living with, and affected by, diabetes.

In WA there are now more than 120,000 people living with diabetes, and every day another 28 are diagnosed. For every person who has diabetes, we believe there is another living with undiagnosed type 2 diabetes. Left unmanaged, diabetes can lead to serious health complications, including heart attacks, kidney failure, blindness and limb amputations.

We work with people living with, or at risk of, diabetes. We run educational programs, training events and a helpline, to assist people with diabetes understand and manage their condition, so they can live a full and healthy life with as few complications as possible.
