The Perth Mint and Nova 93.7 throw their weight behind ‘Go Gold’ month
A gold bar valued at more than $4,000 is up for grabs to raise much-needed funds for childhood cancer research.
With thanks to The Perth Mint and Perth-based radio station Nova 93.7, The Adventurers are giving Western Australian residents a one-in-150 chance to win a solid gold bar valued at more than $4,000.
The 2.5oz 99.99% pure gold bar, donated by the Mint, will be raffled on Saturday 30 September to raise much-needed funds for Childhood Brain Cancer Research at Telethon Kids Institute.
To represent the strength, courage and resilience shown by all children diagnosed with cancer, and their families, this September The Adventurers are asking WA to ‘Go Gold’ in support of International Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.
“Gold set the foundations for the development and prosperity of our State, and now plays a valuable role in raising awareness for childhood cancer the world over,” says Angela Skates, CEO of The Adventurers.
“Year-on-year we are astonished by the generosity of Western Australians in support of childhood cancer research, and a big thank you this year goes to The Perth Mint and Nova 93.7,” she said.
Some of the city’s most iconic buildings which include the Bell Tower, Perth Concert Hall, Council House and Elizabeth Quay Bridge will also shine a light on the cause as the structures are illuminated in gold during the month of September.

The Adventurers was founded in 2010 by Perth couple Rick and Emily Parish after their two year old son Elliot was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma, a common form of childhood brain cancer. He later lost his battle in 2011.
The string of devastating events revealed how little money was spent on childhood brain cancer research in Australia. Raising money via intrepid adventuring, The Adventurers have since donated more than $9 million to childhood brain cancer research.
