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.
