Perth lights up for childhood cancer research

Some of Perth’s most iconic buildings will have a golden glow in the coming weeks in an effort to raise awareness for childhood cancer research.

September is “International Childhood Cancer Awareness Month”, and the Cities of Perth and South Perth have jumped on board, proudly illuminating some of the city’s most famous buildings in gold.

Buildings that will be lit up for the “Go Gold in September” campaign include:

The Old Mill – City of South Perth – all of September Council House & Trafalgar Bridge – City of Perth – 22-23 September Curtin Stadium – Curtin University – all of September Elizabeth Quay Bridge – 18-23 September Bell Tower – 22-23rd September Perth Concert Hall – all of September

The colour gold has been selected to represent the strength, courage and resilience shown by all children diagnosed with cancer, and their families.

The Adventurers, a Perth-based fund-raising charity that funds medical research to discover better treatments and ultimately find a cure for childhood brain cancer, is encouraging other local councils, schools and community groups to “Go Gold in September” to raise awareness for this vital cause.

Find out more about the impact of childhood brain cancer by visiting the Perth Cultural Centre from Friday 8 September through Friday 22 September.
