Run for Childhood Cancer Research

Registrations are now open for the 2020 HBF Run for a Reason! This year, Western Australia’s most well-loved community event will take place on Sunday, May 24.

You can help us raise important funds for childhood cancer research by choosing the Foundation as your reason to participate in either the Commonwealth Bank 4k, the Kleenheat 12k or the Brooks Half Marathon.

As the Foundation does not receive State or Federal funding, we rely on the generous support of the community at these wonderful events to help us ensure the ground-breaking research into childhood cancer can continue so that future generations can live cancer free.

The event is not only a great way to support an important cause, but it will also allow you to get active and have a good time with your family and friends. Not a runner? Don’t sweat it! You are free to run, walk, jog or roll your way to the finish line!

The Commonwealth Bank 4km course is the perfect non-competitive course for those looking to have a fun day out with their family and friends. The 4km course takes you on a scenic tour of Perth as you make your way along the Swan River. It’s also loaded with fun surprises and entertainment!

The Kleenheat 12km course is a great choice for those who are looking for more of a running challenge or need a longer walk to chat to their friends. If you are a seasoned runner or attempting your longest run yet, the Brooks Half Marathon promises to get those legs pumping with a flat, fast course.

Welcome aboard, Kylie!

We would like to extend our warmest welcome to the newest addition to the CLCRF team, Kylie Dalton! Kylie will be coming on board as our Head of Development, a newly created role that has stemmed from the desire to create, build and grow CLCRF’s corporate and community relationships.

Kylie is no stranger to CLCRF, having been involved with the Foundation for over eight years on many levels. Our supporters may already know Kylie as the one who organises our events and has been the driving force behind our much-loved Family Night Out, Dance for A Cure, Friends of Finlay Camp Out and Quiz Night events. Her team from Absolute Edge Media provided all of the PR and Digital that you have seen over the past six years.

“I volunteer, have provided my services through my company Absolute Edge Media and now I am thrilled to be taking on the role of Head of Development,” said Kylie. “There is so much to achieve and I can’t wait to roll my sleeves up and get stuck in.”

“My biggest role is to build stronger relationships and bring to the fold large regular donors so that we can continue funding exciting research. There are so many opportunities right now to fund at the clinical trial level.”

We are thrilled to have Kylie join the CLCRF team and are confident that she will help us flourish during an exciting growth phase for the Foundation.

“Using my skills, qualifications and natural born talent for fundraising, I couldn’t think of a better place to create magic,” said Kylie.

With so much opportunity to build on existing research projects and discover new ones, we have no doubt that with the right strategies and team in place we will see even more advancements in childhood cancer research in the near future.

We are delighted to have you on board, Kylie!

40 years of making a difference

This year is a very special one for the Foundation, as it marks our 40th year of raising funds and awareness for childhood cancer research! Upon reaching this milestone, we reflect on our past achievements and look forward to continuing to make a difference in the lives of children and families facing a cancer diagnosis.

Over the past 40 years, we have raised a substantial amount of funds for important research projects at the Telethon Kids Institute which has assisted children in WA, nationwide, and internationally. One of our biggest achievements would have to be funding the first cancer cell bank, which has contributed to positive outcomes for a number of families.

We are so proud of the ground-breaking work we have helped to fund over the years and have been thrilled to see survival rates increase as a result. It was recorded that only 20 per cent of children with cancer survived 50 years ago, which has since improved to 80 per cent for some forms of cancer.

There is still however a lot more work to be done and we are committed to ensuring this research can continue so that future generations can live cancer free.

As we do not receive any government funding, our biggest goal going into this milestone year is to grow our support base. CLCRF relies significantly on the generosity of our community and there are so many ways, big and small, to help us to continue to make a difference.

We have a lot of exciting plans in store for our supporters this year and we encourage you to keep an eye on our socials to stay across all of our upcoming opportunities and events. To stay in the know, you can like us on Facebook, follow us on Instagram, and sign up to our email newsletter. 

We would like to sincerely thank everyone who has supported us over the past 40 years, the Foundation would not be where it is today without your support! A special thanks goes to our members who have been critical to the ongoing success of the Foundation. Not a member yet? Become one today!
