The Children’s Leukaemia and Cancer Research Foundation (CLCRF) regrets to announce the cancellation of Dance for A Cure for 2018. Due to lack of registrations, the event will be unable to take place on Sunday 18 November.
The event was set to raise funds for Telethon and CLCRF, a charity that funds research into cancers that affect children and their families. Childhood cancer is the single greatest cause of death from disease in Australian children, with three losing their lives to cancer every week.
Event organiser Kylie Dalton is disheartened by the event outcome stating that sadly to make the event successful, so many more registrations were needed.
“It takes a long time and a lot of people to put an event like this on, so when we are faced with a situation like this it breaks all of our hearts. I am just devastated for the dancers and the families that did register early, and have been practising to get their steps right. I know we will find a way for Dance for A Cure to come back, just maybe not in this format. I want to personally thank my volunteer team that have worked alongside of me to get us to this point and gratefully know you will come back to help with whatever we do next.”
Refunds are being offered to all registrants. An email has been sent out to all that registered, explaining the process for either seeking a refund or donating their registration cost to CLCRF. Information regarding this process can also be found on the Dance for A Cure website: danceforacure.com.au.
CLCRF Chief Executive Officer, Andrea Alexander is grateful for the efforts of all involved in putting together this event.
“We would like to thank all of the volunteers that have invested hours into Dance for A Cure and we share their disappointment and sadness that it was unable to go ahead. Thanks also to our sponsors who once again supported this event, we hope to work with them again in the future on other projects.”
The Children’s Leukaemia and Cancer Research Foundation sincerely apologise for the cancellation, and hope that your support for the charity will continue. With your contribution, CLCRF can continue making a difference in the lives of children and families struggling with cancer.
