The importance of fundraising for cancer patients

As Australia’s only pancreatic cancer charity, PanKind requires the assistance of many generous patrons to ensure that our work is carried out to the highest possible standards. It is our mission at PanKind to fund cutting-edge pancreatic cancer research, and the support that is received through our many channels including fundraisers, ambassadors, merchandise sales and volunteers is vital to ensure that we can meet our goals. No matter how you decide to take action, your efforts are always appreciated by our team and by the patients themselves who look forward to a greater pancreatic cancer survival rate in the future. 

Thank you for supporting PanKind and our mission, to triple the pancreatic cancer survival rate by 2030 and dramatically improve the quality of life for those impacted by the disease. There are many ways to take action from making a donation to joining an event or fundraising.

We have various donation options in our ways to give pages, however, if you would like to Take Action and fundraise, here are just a few of the ways you can get involved.


Create Your Own Fundraising Event
By creating your own event, you can tailor your fundraising to suit you and the people who are most likely to support your fundraising efforts. We are happy to guide you through how to do a fundraiser for cancer and can also help you through the organisation process so that you can make the most out of your fundraising event.

Sports Fundraising
Keep fit, challenge yourself and raise some funds for pancreatic cancer research by hosting a sports-based fundraiser! Join one of our running, swimming or cycling events around Australia and experience the benefits of sports fundraising for yourself. When considering how to raise funds for cancer patient treatments, sports are the ideal way to get a group together for a great cause.

Join a walk
Our Put Your Foot Down walks are the original nationwide walk event for the pancreatic cancer community, held in seven national cities in Australia. Designed for everyone to enjoy, you can have fun, get fit and show your support for Australia’s only dedicated pancreatic cancer charity.

If you are involved with a sporting club, get your team to don some of our Purple Socks and Play in Purple this year. Playing in purple is not only a great way to show your support for the commitment that PanKind has to leading pancreatic cancer research but to help raise awareness in the larger community.

Remember September
Every September, people from all around Australia take on this rewarding challenge in honour or in memory of someone special. This is a great way to show your support for the work PanKind is doing while helping to raise the funds needed to increase the survival rate of pancreatic cancer patients in Australia. Not only will you be supporting pancreatic cancer research, but you will also be doing something amazing for your health and wellbeing at the same time!
