Did you know that we rely on fundraisers like yourself so we can continue to raise awareness for bowel cancer prevention? And with bowel cancer still the second most common cancer in Australia we have a lot more work to do!

We have a set minimum goal for each group:

  • 80km – individual fundraising target $500
  • 25km – individual fundraising target $500
  • 10km – individual fundraising target $100

However, you can always set your own fundraising target!

You can kick off your own fundraising with a tax deductible donation when you register or do this later. Please note that your registration fee does not contribute to your fundraising goal.

When you log in to your profile you will find posters and social media images you can use to help your fundraising campaign.
