Fundraise for Cancer Council Tasmania
Where your money goes
Cancer Council Tasmania is a non for profit, independent organisation working to minimise the incidence and impact of cancer on all Tasmanians. It is estimated that 1 in 2 Tasmanians will be diagnosed with cancer by age 85. To reduce that incidence, and the impact of cancer in our local community, Cancer Council Tasmania:
• Provide high quality support services for people with cancer, their families, carers and friends;
• Invest in cancer prevention programs that educate the community about lifestyle factors that can decrease the risk of cancer;
• Fund local cancer-related research projects; and
• Provide a respected voice for the needs of people affected by cancer.
Our work could not be achieved without the generosity of the Tasmanian community and the support of our dedicated volunteers. Over 90% funded by public donations, fundraising activities underpin our support services, prevention programs and cancer research funding. All money that is raised and donated to our organisation stays in Tasmania to directly assist our local community.

The Cancer Council Tasmania Women’s 5km Footrace is a walk/run for women of all ages, taking place around the City Centre of Launceston.
The aim of the walk/run is to raise awareness around breast cancer, encourage women to get out and have some fun whilst being active, and helping to raise money to support Cancer Council Tasmania. You can sponsor your friends and family to take part in this wonderful community event and encourage them to get fit and active whilst helping your local community at the same time.
