Who are The Adventurers ?
The Adventurers is a group of people dedicated to promoting awareness of childhood brain cancer, and raising funds for medical research into new and more effective treatments. Adventurers are volunteers who commit themselves to an arduous physical challenge (at their own expense) and a significant fundraising target. In 2017, teams will venture to Iceland, Thailand, the East Kimberleys, Japan and Mount Kilimanjaro. Upon becoming an Adventurer, volunteers join a community of like-minded and spirited individuals who value children, life, strength, compassion, adventure and teamwork. Throughout the year, many opportunities arise for the wider community to get involved with The Adventurers and support the fight against childhood brain cancer.
Telethon Kids Institute
The Telethon Kids Institute, which is based in Perth (Western Australia), is a leading medical research organisation dedicated to finding causes, treatments and cures for serious illnesses which target children. The Institute opened its doors in June 1990, and is now home to over six-hundred researchers and support staff. The Adventurers works in close partnership with the Telethon Kids Institute.
Why we need your support
In Australia, brain cancer kills more children every year than any other disease. Of the 100+ children who die from cancer every year, 1 in 4 of these deaths can be attributed to brain cancer. Treatment options for childhood brain cancer include surgery, chemotherapy and radiation therapy – treatments which leave many children with debilitating, long-term side effects.
The Adventurers’ fundraising efforts are designed to reflect the incredible struggle and courage of the children we support. That’s why our Adventures are bold, exciting and inherently challenging – forcing our Adventurers to face their own fears and doubts. At The Adventurers, we’re committed to funding medical research into childhood brain cancer; however, we need your support to do this. OUR QUEST THEIR CURE
