About
unite to
fight cancer

What does it take to find cures for cancer? Dedication? Smarts? Perseverance? Technology? Our researchers here at Peter Mac have all that and more. But we can’t do this alone.

What would you give to bring hope to every person diagnosed with cancer and their loved ones? Your sweat, your determination, your passion?

On 28 October 2018, that’s exactly what hundreds of passionate people did – took to the streets and parks of Melbourne and united to fight cancer with Peter Mac. Between everyone who signed up to take part, an incredible $1.3 million was raised to help fund our vital research.

Here at Peter Mac, we are truly grateful for the support of our fantastic fundraisers. We know cures are out there. Together we can find them sooner.

THEY RODE, THEY RAN, THEY WALKED

Our cyclists chose from two possible distances – 60km or 100km – and rode the streets, parks and waterfront of Melbourne.

Our runners were challenged by a beautiful 21km route which took them through Peter Mac’s new home in Parkville.

Our walkers – some of them in fancy dress – paced out 21km through some of Melbourne’s leafy parks and walkways.

A HEARTFELT THANK YOU

“Your generosity and compassion are
giving the most important gift, the gift
of hope, to people with cancer and
their loved ones.”

“You are such an important part of
the Peter Mac family, and we are very
grateful for all that you do.”

Jennifer Doubell,
Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation

THE DIFFERENCE YOU MAKE

“I’m still here, but it took six operations,
six months of chemotherapy and then five weeks
of radiotherapy. My cancer might not have been
beaten 20 years ago. I was the lucky recipient
of research outcomes.”
