The ARU are proud to support Redkite as their official charity.
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.
During the DHL Australia 2013 Lions Tour Redkite launched Be Bold Go Gold, a campaign inviting Australians to get behind the Qantas Wallabies and support children and young people with cancer by holding a fundraising BBQ. At the same time a group of intrepid cyclists, captained by former Wallaby stars Warwick Waugh, Andrew Heath and Simon Poidevin, embarked on the Ride of the Lions, a remarkable cycling challenge from Melbourne to Sydney.
Together, these incredible Redkite support initiatives raised an amazing $70,000. This support will ensure more children, young people and their families have access to Redkite's essential services.
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.
