As we approach the festive season, the Children’s Leukaemia and Cancer Research Foundation (CLCRF) will enlist the help of ordinary Australian superheroes to help beat child cancer in its inaugural matched giving day next month. CLCRF’s cancer-fighting hero, ‘Hope’ is on the case with her sidekick ‘Power.’
On Monday 15 November, WA landmarks across the State will light up in red and blue and The Foundation will hold its first matched giving day to shine a light on childhood cancer and encourage their community of supporters to dig deep and donate.
CLCRF has a commitment to ensure the ground-breaking research we fund today will have a positive impact on our children of tomorrow, where no life is cut short by childhood cancers.
CLCRF CEO Andrea Alexander has a long-held passion for improving childhood cancer outcomes by funding research into less invasive treatments. She has dedicated her career to childhood cancer research advocacy and the growth of the Foundation.
“The Children’s Leukaemia and Cancer Research Foundation represents what all of us cherish most, the health and happiness of all children,” Andrea said.
Stan Perron Charitable Foundation Chair Elizabeth Perron said “The Stan Perron Foundation is proud to support CLCRF in its ongoing efforts to fund essential childhood cancer research.
The Foundation does an incredible job and to further support their mission, we are delighted to match public donations during the Beat Child Cancer giving day appeal. I encourage everyone to give generously, your support will greatly improve CLCRF’s capacity to deliver life-saving treatments to those in need.”
Matched Giving Partners Stan Perron Charitable Foundation and Tate Family Foundation together with a number of our other longstanding and charitable major donors are generously supporting the campaign by doubling every dollar donated by the WA community until 15 November.
This means donations to the campaign will be doubled, dollar for dollar, up to a total of $75,000.
