ABOUT OUR CHARITIES

Children’s Leukaemia

The Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc) is a charity based in Western Australia. Its aims are to raise funds to promote medical research into childhood cancers and to encourage and advance investigation into the cause, prevention and diagnosis and treatment of these illnesses. For over 30 years the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc) has been funding vital research into childhood cancers, leukaemias and brain tumours.

Solaris Cancer Care

Solaris Cancer Care’s philosophy is simple: “everything we do is centred around assisting a person diagnosed with cancer to live well.” Evolving out of a clear demand from cancer patients for a wellness approach to cancer in Western Australia, Solaris Cancer Care is a leading authority on integrating natural and complementary therapies with conventional care. Solaris Cancer Care offers unconditional support to all people in Western Australia affected by cancer, including carers and family members, through all stages of the illness, including long term survivors and bereaved families.

Australian Rotary Health – Lift the Lid on Mental Illness

Lift the Lid on Mental Illness is Australian Rotary Health’s National annual fundraising day for mental health research. Each year approximately 1-in-5 Australians will experience a mental illness and in order to help future generations of young Australians, we need to look ahead through research and find out how we can prevent this type of illness occurring. As well as other local beneficiaries

Please join us and support these deserving recipients.
“This is a ride for life, let us as riders inspire one another”
