Run for a cause close to your heart and help raise money for WA charities. We have four feature charities including Cancer Council, Diabetes WA, Heart Foundaiton and Lifeline WA.
As the leading independent cancer organisation in the state, Cancer Council WA is fighting
cancer from every angle. By funding world-class research, running prevention programs
and offering support services, we are bringing the defeat of cancer closer all the time.
However, as a non-government organisation we rely on community donations to carry out this work. Each donation you make will help us continue to support all West Australians affected by cancer, when they need it the most. We couldn’t do what we do, without you!
For over 50 years Diabetes WA has provided vital support for Western Australians living with,
and affected by, diabetes.
In WA there are now more than 120,000 people living with diabetes, and every day another 28 are diagnosed. For every person who has diabetes, we believe there is another living with undiagnosed type 2 diabetes. Left unmanaged, diabetes can lead to serious health complications, including heart attacks, kidney failure, blindness and limb amputations.
We work with people living with, or at risk of, diabetes. We run educational programs, training events and a helpline, to assist people with diabetes understand and manage their condition, so they can live a full and healthy life with as few complications as possible.
For more than 55 years, the Heart Foundation has been dedicated to saving lives by making
a difference to the heart health of all Australians. At present a person dies every 12
minutes from cardiovascular disease and it affects 2 out of 3 families. As a charity
we rely on donations from the community to help fund vital research, develop guidelines
for health professionals, support patient care and help Australians to live healthy lifestyles.
There is much more to do, and we are determined to save as many lives as we can in our quest to beat cardiovascular disease, Australia’s single biggest killer. Please help us continue our vital work.
