The Cancer Council established the “Ritchies' Customers Community Research Award” in 1995. Every donation made through Ritchies' Community Benefit Card program is contributing directly to cancer research.
Please just make the changes to the following paragraph: The “Ritchies' Customers Community Research Award” has benefited research into genetic links in cancer; research in the area of colon cancer and rhabdomyosarcoma, a skeletal muscle tumour that is relatively common in childhood; and currently, research into skin cancer – melanoma. Donations around $10,000 a month have resulted in a total well over $1.4 million dollars by end November 2009
"Thank you Ritchies for your ongoing support of The Cancer Council Victoria through the 'Ritchies' Community Benefit Card' initiative. This community-spirited program allows Ritchies customers to support cancer research, without effort and while they shop. We are very grateful for the generous donations that we receive each month."
