OUR CHARITY PARTNERS
Beyond Five is Australia’s first national charity supporting people affected by head and neck cancer.
Over 17,000 people are living in Australia with Head and Neck Cancer and nearly 5,000 people are newly diagnosed each year.
Head and Neck Cancer is one of the seven most common cancers affecting Australians, and with more than 10 different types, it is incredibly complex and diverse.
These cancers are not just caused by smoking and alcohol. The incidence of human papilloma virus (HPV) Head and Neck Cancer is expected to exceed cervical cancer and in many cases the cause of Head and Neck Cancer is unknown.
There is no screening for Head and Neck Cancer: Early detection and education is key.

The Leukaemia Foundation is the only national charity dedicated to helping those with leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma and related blood disorders survive and then live a better quality of life. Leukaemia, lymphoma and myeloma are all types of blood cancer and they can develop in anyone, of any age, at any time. Another 41 Australians are diagnosed each and every day, that’s one person every 36 minutes.
Support for the Leukaemia Foundation helps accelerate blood cancer research, create broader access to supportive care and information and amplify the voice of the blood cancer community.

3 SIMPLE TIPS TO SUCCESSFUL FUNDRAISING
Make your fundraising page as personalised as possible! Change the font, include pictures, even include a video! Show your donors why you care and how their support will make a difference.
Dare yourself! Make a promise to your donors: if you reach a certain target, you’ll… Shave your head, bake them all cookies, ride that extra 50km, or anything else you can think of! It’s a great way to incentivise donors and keep those funds coming once you’ve hit your target.
3. Social Media
It’s not real unless it’s on Facebook! Make an initial status when you first create your page and update all your friends and family on your progress. Have a count down, put up pictures, and remind everyone that they can help make a difference. Also – don’t forget about Instagram! Gramming your progress and using #hashtags are a great way of connecting with like-minded people and getting some inspiration and motivation along the way.
