FOOTBALL UNITES TO KICK IT FOR BRAIN CANCER
ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO TO CURE BRAIN CANCER FOUNDATION
Kick It For Brain Cancer aims to raise $1 million to help beat this brutal disease. You can support the initiative by donating at www.kickitforbraincancer.org.au, purchasing a Kick It For Brain Cancer bandana, or by getting your local club to hold a fundraising event.
It’s widely known that football is played by more Australian kids than any other sport. But a lesser known statistic is that brain cancer kills more Australian kids than any other disease, and more adults under 40 than any other cancer.
Sadly, the chances of surviving brain cancer are as bleak as they were 30 years ago, with a devastatingly low five-year survival rate of just 20%. But by increasing funding and research, Cure Brain Cancer Foundation aims to increase that to 50% by 2023. That’s why ‘Kick It For Brain Cancer’ is so important.
This initiative was inspired by former Hyundai A-League Championship-winning captain Mark Rudan and his sister Mariana. Following their mother’s diagnosis, Mark and his sister Mariana were shocked to discover how underfunded brain cancer research is and how few treatment options are available, despite major advances in other diseases.
All proceeds will be donated to Cure Brain Cancer Foundation, Australia’s leading organisation for brain cancer research, advocacy and awareness.
Together we can make a difference to the countless young lives lost to brain cancer each year. Together with football, we can help find a cure.
