Since 2005, Fight Cancer Foundation and Footy Colours Day has helped young learners continue with their education while they receive treatment for cancer.
Fight Cancer Foundation’s education support programs were developed in 2005 in partnership with the Royal Children’s Hospital Education Institute in Melbourne to address the gap in educational support for kids and young people living with cancer.
Today, the programs operate in major paediatric hospitals in Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia, with plans to expand to other hospitals to ensure no child or young person living with cancer is educationally disadvantaged by their illness.
Each year, hundreds of thousands of Australians stand shoulder to shoulder to unite in the fight against cancer by wearing their team's colours with pride throughout September at their school, workplace or club.
Show your true colours and make a difference in the lives of kids and young people living with cancer. For fundraising tips and ideas about how to make your event bigger than the grand final
