Last year's event

2021 was a challenging year for all of us and against all odds, we were delighted to be able to hold the event.  

Together our CEOs and business leaders achieved the amazing $1.6m fundraising milestone, funding the equivalent of 15 senior researchers working in our Labs.

"CEO Dare to Cure is I think the number one event that any CEO or leader should seriously consider doing. It’s a few hours on a weekday morning to come together and help children with cancer. There’s nothing better really."

- Chris Dutton, Founder, The CEO Magazine
