Challenge - supporting kids with cancer
Challenge is a charitable organisation that supports children living with cancer and their families from the time of diagnosis, throughout treatment and beyond.
All Challenge activities promote family unity and encourage the formation of support networks, a vital component in the healing process. Challenge strongly believes that children and families who are offered positive experiences are better able to cope with the pressures of a life-threatening illness.
“The cancer experience is such an isolating experience and ‘as far from normal life' as we could ever have imagined it to be. Thank you for working so tirelessly at bringing a little normalcy and loads of sunshine into our lives at a time when our perspective looked very grey.” Challenge mother
Assisting families on a daily basis, both in and out of hospital, Challenge provides hospital and parent support, camps, family activity days, holiday accommodation, extensive ticketing, celebrity visits and many other services.
Children and families are able to access Challenge programs and services at no charge and the organisation does not receive any government funding.
Challenge requires $2 million annually to continue their vital program, which is greatly boosted through donations from Ritchies Community Benefit program.
