Walk4BrainCancer – 2017
Smile Elite are proud supporters of Walk4BrainCancer. Walk’s across the country are taking place from September to December 2017. Walk4BrainCancer is the biggest mobilisation of the brain cancer community. Join us and make a difference in fighting this important cause.
Since Cure Brain Cancer Foundation’s first ‘Walk4Life’ in 2003, Walk4BrainCancer has grown from a community walk to a powerful grassroots movement. Last year, record numbers of people came together to change outcomes for those living with, and impacted by brain cancer. The event is a chance for the brain cancer community to take to their feet, bare their sole, and share their stories.
Brain Cancer affects all people and age groups and it is growing rapidly each year.
- Brain cancer kills more children in Australia than any other disease and more people under 40 than any other cancer.
- Cure Brain Cancer supports 23 research projects with collaborations across 40 sites, on four continents.
- The charity is funding research, which will compress timeframes and enable brain cancer patients to access new treatments faster.
- The mission is to increase five-year survival rates from 20% to 50% by 2023.
By taking part you are contributing to raising funds for Brain Cancer Research. An enjoyable walk for the entire family and your friends while raising funds for a wonderful cause.
You’ll be raising awareness and funds for world-class clinical trials that will deliver vital new treatments for Australian children and adults with brain cancer.
