How PanKind’s fundraisers help advocate for pancreatic cancer

Our raised funds contribute to medical research at Australia’s finest institutions to help increase pancreatic cancer survival rates.

Fundraisers are a great way to join forces with like-minded people and advocate for pancreatic cancer research by raising funds and creating awareness. Here are some fundraising ideas to help cancer research if you need some inspiration to create your own:

- Social events and dinners — Host a BBQ, fun trivia night, birthday party or gala dinner to bring people together for a good cause.
- ‘In memory’ tributes — Celebrate the life of a loved one by raising much-needed funds for pancreatic cancer medical research by creating an online tribute to commemorate them and invite friends and family to make a donation.
- Extreme challenges — If you have an adventurous side, test your limits with various activities, like a hike, mountain climb, triathlon, or a parachute jump. Ask family and friends to support your cause with a donation and by sharing on social media.

The importance of fundraising for pancreatic cancer research in Australia
Since PanKind first formed in 2008, we have invested over $11 million in pancreatic cancer research across Australia’s best research institutions. We invest in high-impact, strategic research projects and fund competitive research grants across the entire research pathway.
Only by investing early in pancreatic cancer research can we build our capacity in Australia and accelerate the rollout of new treatments to patients to ensure a better quality of life and help increase survival rates.
By creating or participating in fundraising events for pancreatic cancer, you and your loved ones actively contribute to research funding in Australia.
How we spend our pancreatic cancer research donations
Our pancreatic cancer research donations fund cutting-edge research for Australia’s finest institutions. We fund various initiatives focusing on early detection of pancreatic cancer before symptoms develop to increase patient survival rates. We also fund a project that develops a novel clinical screening tool to detect early signs of pancreatic cancer in patients with diabetes and chronic pancreatitis. Additionally, we fund research investigating human cancer cells' characteristics over time and how different patients experience the disease over time.
