Stuck for ideas on how to raise funds for thoracic cancer research??

Host an event where each attendee makes a minimum donation to attend. Trivia nights, a wine tasting tour, a dinner party or BBQ, a morning tea, a karaoke night, a scavenger hunt, a dog walk, a music gig, a comedy night, host a bushwalk….the only limit is your imagination

Undertake a personal challenge and collect sponsors. Join #TeamTOGA in various running events, complete 1000 push ups in a month, master the habit of 30 burpees/day and fine yourself $1 for each burpee you don’t complete, choose your favourite form of exercise and up the ante by pledging to complete a certain distance or time, give up sugar for a month.

Involve the family. Create a swear jar, host a garage sale and donate the money taken, provide a neighbourhood car wash, celebrate your next special occasion by requesting donations for lung cancer or mesothelioma research in lieu of gifts.

‘When cancer took my grandma, I lost a part of me. It was heartbreaking to watch her suffering in pain and breathlessness. Her fight with the incurable did not end with her last breath.’
Medical research is vital to improving the lives of lung cancer sufferers and I need your support to raise much needed funds for lung cancer research.

Past successful campaigns

One of our most successful fundraisers is Claire Monk, who has raised over $40,000 for lung cancer research through harnessing individual donations from her personal network. Claire was motivated to raise funds for lung cancer research after a devastating diagnosis within her close circle. Claire competed in the Port Macquarie Ironman earlier this year.

Our thoughts are with Claire and her partner Woody during his challenging lung cancer diagnosis, and we thank them both and all their donors for the money they have raised for lung cancer clinical research.
