Why Fundraise

1 in 2 Australians will be affected by cancer in their lives.
Cancer Council is the only charity that works across every area of every cancer. Every day, we support people impacted by cancer when they need it most, speak out on behalf of the community on cancer issues, empower people to reduce their cancer risk, and find new ways to better detect and treat cancer, and save lives.
As an independent, not-for-profit organisation, we rely on the generosity of our supporters to continue our important work. Through taking part in 7 Bridges Walk and raising funds, you will be supporting Australians impacted by cancer every single step of the way.
