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.


Current Campaigns

Sign up to fundraise or donate to any of our current campaigns.


As we enter another gift-giving season, ask your family and friends to donate to TOGA instead of buying you a present. The best gift of all is the feeling that you’re helping people in need; give up your Christmas gifts to help people with lung cancer live longer so they could enjoy many more Christmases with their loved ones. 

Donate or fundraise by setting up your own individual fundraiser page.

‘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.
