Your support knocked our (purple) socks off!

This year over 6,000 feet took to fields, pitches, ovals and courts all over Australia proudly sporting our very own Purple Socks in support for Pancreatic Cancer fundraising and awareness.

This amazing show of community support means our #GoingPurpleForPancreaticCancer campaign (or Purple Socks as we like to call it) tripled in size this year, generating over $30,000 directly into Pancreatic Cancer Medical Research.

A heart-warming end to a big year

A heart-warming end to a big year

The Avner Foundation made a lot of new friends this year, including many new people affected by Pancreatic Cancer and researchers who are working tirelessly to find a cure for the disease. It was particularly rewarding to end the year by bringing together one of our new-found supporters and friend, Dean Gorddard, with one of our new research collaborators.
