Child Cancer Research Fundraising

Join us on Sunday 8 November at 11am as we Dance for A Cure!

Hundreds of families from across Perth will come together in Forrest Place in the City of Perth to perform a choreographed dance to help raise awareness for the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (CLCRF).

This year’s event will be opened by the recently appointed CLCRF ambassador the Right Honourable Lord Mayor Lisa M. Scaffidi and attended by long-term CLCRF Patron Justin Langer, who will be available to sign t-shirts for the general public. The event will raise much-needed funds for the CLCRF to continue their valued research into childhood cancer.

We strongly encourage you to register to be a part of this great event via the Dance for A Cure website and follow the steps below to select your t-shirt size and sign up!

Lauchlan Bain, an independent Perth choreographer, has taken on the challenge of choreographing the 2015 event, creating all of the dance moves for the general public. This year we are lucky enough to be dancing to Geronimo by Australian band, Sheppard, who are very supportive of this event and have licenced the song to CLCRF for this special occasion. A filmed version of the choreography can be found on the Dance for A Cure website for you to learn before the big day. Find out more…

Thankyou for supporting research into child cancer and Children’s Leukaemia!

Resarch undertaken in the Research Laboratory and clinical services provided by the Hospital are essential for the maintenance of the high standard of patient care that these sick children need. Only in this way is it possible to apply new discoveries from research to the continual upgrading of leukaemia and cancer treatment. The ongoing improvements in treatment benefits child cancer treatment both in Australia and worldwide.

Foundation History

Jennifer HarperThe creation of the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc) was inspired by 9 year old Jennifer Harper, who was diagnosed with leukaemia in 1977. When her father, Peter Harper, discovered that there was no research into children’s leukaemia being done in WA, he set out to raise funds for this purpose.

Together with other parents of children with cancer and with the support of Princess Margaret Hospital for Children, the Children’s Leukaemia & Cancer Research Foundation (Inc) was formed. Read More
