Last year's event

Expanding on the success of our Sydney event the inaugural CEO Dare to Cure Melbourne event was launched!!  

Together, across both events our CEOs and business leaders achieved an incredible result, raising $1.7m for childhood cancer research, funding the equivalent of 16 senior researchers working in our Labs.

"CEO Dare to Cure is the number one event that any CEO or leader should seriously consider doing. It’s a chance to come together to help children with cancer. There’s nothing better really.”

- Chris Dutton, Founder, The CEO Magazine

He has already been through several cycles of chemotherapy over the past eight months and has experienced a range of debilitating side-effects. He has another 16 months of maintenance therapy to go, then it will be another three years beyond that before he gets the all-clear.
