Our 4th “Put Your Foot Down” Walk will be held in Adelaide on 8th November 2015 in support of Avner’s Foundation and it's vision. Help raise funds towards desperately needed research into Pancreatic Cancer by coming along to this fun family-friendly walk.
Our fourth annual 'Put Your Foot Down' walk in Brisbane will take place on Sunday 29th November. Our walk this year will commence earlier, at 09:00, and at the same start point as last year - the East Lawn of the Queensland University of Technology, which is adjacent to the City Botanic Gardens.
We need volunteers to help out at a fundraising event in Adelaide on Saturday 14th November. Hills Hoist are celebrating their 70th birthday on that date and have chosen us as the charity of the event. Volunteers are needed to help out selling drinks and collecting donations with all proceeds from these coming to the Foundation.
The 2015 (inaugural) Avner Pancreatic Cancer Foundation grant funding round has now closed. Thank you to all researchers who submitted online applications. We received an overwhelming response with over 15 applications received for both the Accelerator Grants and the ‘Woolies on Wheels’ Innovation Grants.
In its inaugural funding round, Avner Pancreatic Cancer Foundation is making available $1.9M in grant funding in the form of two types of grants - Accelerator Grants and ‘Woolies on Wheels’ Innovation Grants.
Thanks to Isabella DiManno, on the weekend of the 6th-7th June 2015, 300 football players from 5 clubs donned purple socks in a move to build awareness of Pancreatic Cancer and raise funds for the foundation.
