Want to do a sporting or active fundraiser for CanTeen? You’ve found the right place!  Raise More Than a Sweat is an easy way to raise funds to support young people living with cancer while doing anything active or sporty!

Thank you for supporting CanTeen and young people living with cancer.

 

You can choose to Raise More Than a Sweat on your own or as part of a team. Why not get your work colleagues, school or sports club involved? Run, cycle, walk or swim in an organised event, such as the City 2 Surf or City~Bay, OR devise your own challenge. Previous participants have Raised More Than a Sweat by pushing a wheelbarrow 90km up hill, kayaking from one side of the bay to the other, running on a treadmill for 24 hours and walking 100 laps around an oval. The possibilities are endless!

Once you have decided how you are going to Raise More Than a Sweat for CanTeen you simply need to register your event or challenge, ask your friends and family to sponsor you and then get moving! It doesn’t matter how much or how little you raise – every little bit will mean CanTeen can continue to provide vital services and programs to help young people cope with the emotional, physical and practical issues of living with cancer.

CanTeen has partnered with Everyday Hero to provide an online fundraising webpage you can customise. In just minutes you can build your own page (for free!) and then approach your supporters, friends, family and colleagues for a donation simply by emailing around the link to your webpage. Each donation is recorded on your page along with any message of support from your donors. So get a head start and make sure you create an online fundraising page today by clicking on the 'Start Fundraising' button!

Good Luck!

 

CanTeen

CanTeen supports young people when cancer turns their world upside down and helps them cope with the physical, emotional and practical impact of living with cancer.

We’re here for 12-24 year olds dealing with:
• having cancer themselves
• a parent, brother or sister being diagnosed with cancer
• the death of a parent, brother or sister

CanTeen provides specialist hospital care, counselling and individual assistance as well as information and peer support programs.

We get how tough it is to face cancer, because we were set up by young cancer patients in 1985 and still have young people affected by cancer guiding CanTeen at every level.

Examples of how your fundraising helps young people living with cancer:

  • $150 means four young people could attend a recreation day which allows them to take a break from the daily pressures of living with cancer
  • $500 allows one young person living with cancer to attend a weekend program. This might be a Good Grief program where young people can learn about grief and loss associated with cancer.
  • $1,000 goes towards the cost of a five-day program. At these programs, Discussion Groups give young people the chance to share, in a safe environment, their thoughts and feelings about their cancer journeys.
