Why Fundraise

Cancer affects 1 in 2 Australians in their lives

Cancer Council is the only charity that works across every area of cancer. Through taking part in the 7 Bridges Walk and raising funds, you will be supporting Australians impacted by cancer every single step of the way.


Change the future of cancer with every step

Your walk helps people affected by cancer and brings us closer to a cancer free future.

Every dollar goes towards:

  • World-class cancer research that improves the way cancer is prevented, detected, and treated
  • Cancer support services that ensure no one has to go through cancer alone, no matter where they live


Protecting life's moments, for life

7 Bridges Walk is a great chance to come together and fundraise in the hopes that sometime in the future, no one has to lose a loved one to cancer” 

"Knowing what I know now, I'm keen to increase awareness about breast cancer in women my age and in  similar circumstances and want to warn against 'explaining away' symptoms or 'soldiering on' with busy lives."

"7 Bridges Walk helped me to grieve for Dad in a positive way. I’m not the sort of person who wants to sit back and feel sad. And I know, Dad wouldn’t want me to do that. The walk gives me a chance to do something for others."
