You may be surprised to learn that, in Australia, brain cancer kills more children than any other disease and more people under 40 that any other cancer, yet it is one of the most underfunded and under researched cancers of all time. Your participation in Beanie for Brain Cancer Day will enable us to increase awareness of this terrible disease, and raise much needed funds for brain cancer research.
Your school community can help us by participating in our annual Beanie for Brain Cancer campaign. It's easy, fun, and a great opportunity for students to experience first hand how a small effort by many can make a big difference!
How to host a Beanie Day at your school
- Choose a date to hold your Beanie for Brain Cancer Day (it can be any time, but ideally in Beanie Week, which is June 20-24)
- Register your school or pre-school using the Registration Link below
- Spread the word to students and parents, inviting them to wear a beanie and make a donation to the Mark Hughes Foundation
- Put the FUN into FUNdraising with Brain Teasers, games of Celebrity Head, and guess the Jelly Beanies!
- After the event - announce the total amount raised by your school and give yourselves a big pat on the pack! The money will then need to be deposited into the Mark Hughes Foundation's bank account, and HMRI (the Hunter Medical Research Institute) will need to be notified of the banked amount and the date.
Your help in raising funds for brain cancer research would be greatly appreciated and we think your school community will find it a fun, easy, and extremely rewarding experience. We guarantee your hard work will not be wasted and every dollar will go to finding better treatments and ultimately to finding a cure for brain cancer.
