I wasn’t sure how to start this post ... except to say these two words - cancer sucks.
Sadly, cancer is the leading cause of death in Australia, affecting 1 in 2 Australians by the age of 85, and in turn their wider families.
But it sucks even more if you are a child or a parent of a child with the illness.
My Room is one of the charities we hope our customers will direct their donations towards. The charity's main focus is to raise funds that are sent directly to clinical research. They are boldly aiming to achieve a 100% cure rate.
"Cancer is the second leading cause of death in Australian children, behind injury and poisoning."
My Room has been run tirelessly by a volunteer network for more than 25 years, raising more than $17 million in that time. They also go beyond the much-needed research for a cure, My Room provides essential support to children affected through clinical care and family support services to help improve their quality of life.
For the team here at Kusaga Athletic, it was important to include My Room within our i=change social impact platform.
