When a child is diagnosed with cancer their world is turned upside down overnight. With treatment starting instantly, they face, on average, more than 6 months away from their school and school friends.
All the money you raise through Footy Colours Day funds Fight Cancer Foundation's education support programs, which keep kids with cancer learning while they receive and recover from treatment.
By hosting a Footy Colours Day event you are ensuring these kids can put their cancer behind them, reach their full potential at school and get back to doing what they do best - being a kid!
