CLCRF continues ‘Million Dollar’ partnership into second year

The Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation Inc. are proud to be a Million Dollar Partner of Telethon7 Perth for a second year!

The $1 million donated from CLCRF to Telethon has been earmarked solely for childhood cancer research, ALL, infant ALL, brain tumours and sarcomas.

CLCRF chairman Geoff Cattach presented the cheque to Channel 7’s Tina Altieri during last weekend’s Telethon coverage.

“Next year we’re hopeful that here at Telethon Kids Institute they’ll be additional research for children’s brain tumours and the relationship with Telethon allows us fund research into sarcomas.

“Part of the reason (we have) our relationship with Telethon (is that it) allows us to put more funds back into the research for children’s cancers.”

Telethon raised more than $38 million to support crucial child health research, provide vital medical equipment, and drive social welfare programs.

Since 1968 Western Australians have raised over $300 million through Telethon for the kids of WA.

There are several ways you can continue to help support Telethon. Book your tickets now for this weekend’s Friends of Finlay Camp Out and or register for our Dance for A Cure 2018 in November – all monies raised will go to Telethon and child cancer research.
