Team Amity

86k for a Cure

Join us to help find a cure!

Our little Amity died of a brain tumour at the age of six.  She was a funny, joyous, clever, loving, spirited girl who loved life and gave generously of herself. We miss her desperately. We miss her laugh and her smile, her gentle words of encouragement and her crafty creations which always became gifts to someone. She was a girl who had a lot to offer the world.

Amity’s tumour was donated to the Children’s Cancer Institute. From the time she was three, Amity said she wanted to be a scientist, so we felt it was right to give her tumour to the researchers and doctors who will use it to find a cure for brain cancer. We hope that one day, a family will not need to lose their Amity to brain cancer. Brain cancer is now the leading cause of non-accidental deaths in children. Interventions are urgently needed.

To help raise money for the Children’s Cancer Institute, we have formed Team Amity for the 86K For A Cure Challenge. The Challenge is to walk or run (or roller-skate) 86kms in the month of March. Yes, that's 86kms individually and no, we won't be surveilling you.  It's a kind of a covidy-self-assessment type of deal.  

Every month, 86 children are diagnosed with cancer. There is usually no known cause, treatment can go on for many years and it puts an enormous strain on family life.

So we're taking on this challenge throughout March for the 86 children who are diagnosed with cancer each month in Australia.

Together, we can help find a cure for childhood cancer and create safer, more effective treatments.

If you can’t join us for the Challenge, please consider supporting us, either by donating or sharing this page. All money raised will go to vital brain cancer research. We have to put an end to stories like Amity’s. It's not if, it's when.  

Thank you to our Sponsors

Two seperate donations with the small amount of left over money I have from Christmas vouchers. I know nothing about Amity, but it's going to give more of God's children a chance, and it's a sure good use of my money! I hope my small amount, mixed with the rest of the donations, can in the long run benefit the research :) Good luck!

I am conquering km to help find a cure for childhood cancer.
