Over the past decade, HBF Run for a Reason participants have raised $10 million for more than 190 WA health charities. It’s an amazing achievement and we can’t thank you enough, but we’re not done yet!
While the event won’t be going ahead in 2021, you can still support one of our feature charities below or visit your preferred charity’s website to donate and help make even more of an impact to the lives of Western Australians.
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 is the fastest-growing health crisis of our time. There is no cure and people living with diabetes need the best care and support to minimise the risk of life-changing, life-threatening complications.
Diabetes WA is a proudly Western Australian not for profit health service improving the quality of life for the 260,000 Western Australians living with or at risk of diabetes. We provide free programs, education, experiences, advice and personal support.
Diabetes WA raises funds to make sure we reach every person needing our help. By fundraising for Diabetes WA, you will potentially help a friend, neighbour or family member living with diabetes to live a full, healthy, happy life.
For more than 55 years, the Heart Foundation has been dedicated to saving lives by making
a difference to the heart health of all Australians. At present a person dies every 12
minutes from cardiovascular disease and it affects 2 out of 3 families. As a charity
we rely on donations from the community to help fund vital research, develop guidelines
for health professionals, support patient care and help Australians to live healthy lifestyles.
There is much more to do, and we are determined to save as many lives as we can in our quest to beat cardiovascular disease, Australia’s single biggest killer. Please help us continue our vital work.
