ARU has participated in International Women’s Day (IWD) initiatives since the inception of the partnership, including wearing the purple ribbon, the IWD symbol for gender equality and women’s empowerment, and attending IWD events in Sydney.
When women are empowered and have an income, they invest in their families and communities, driving down hunger, poverty and malnutrition, and improving health, education and well-being.

Established in 2007, the partnership is motivated by the ARU and Redkite’s common belief in supporting the community and in building further awareness of Redkite’s vital financial, emotional and education support programs for families on the cancer journey. Children and young people with cancer and their families also get the special chance to meet the Qantas Wallabies through hospital visits, fan days and training days.
Redkite is the national cancer charity that has been providing essential support to children and young people with cancer and their families for over thirty years. From the devastating moment of diagnosis, Redkite is there providing the essentials including information, counselling, financial assistance and support to keep up with school and training.
Receiving no government funding, Redkite relies entirely on the generosity of our supporters, like the ARU, to provide these important programs and reach the thousands of families on the cancer journey who need them.
