About The Kids’ Cancer Project
The Kids’ Cancer Project is an independent national charity supporting childhood cancer research.
Kids get different types of cancer to adults. Research is the key to discovering more targeted and effective ways to help them.
Since 1993, thanks to strong community support, like Fitz’s Challenge riders, the charity has contributed tens of millions of dollars to scientific research projects to help children with many types of cancer.
Founder, Col Reynolds OAM, has a steely focus to make a difference to the lives of kids living with the disease. It all started on an ordinary day in the early 1990s when Col found himself driving his empty tourist coach past the Children’s Hospital in Camperdown, Sydney. After stopping to let two youngsters with bald heads cross the road, he parked his vehicle and went into the hospital on the spur of the moment. Touched by the spirit of everyone he met that day, Col made it his personal mission to help kids with cancer in any way he could.
Very early in his quest, Col learned that the only way to improve outcomes for these children is through advances in medical research.
