The Kids’ Cancer Project Celebrates Annual Pirate Day With Fundraising Events Across Australia

Pirate Day is today, Friday 14 May, which is an annual national day of dressing up to raise awareness and much-needed funds for childhood brain cancer. Since 2015, Pirate Day has raised over $360,000 for childhood brain cancer research organised by The Kids’ Cancer Project.

Cancer kills more Australian children than any other disease, with 950 children diagnosed each year and three passing away every week. With research, the only way towards a cure, The Kids’ Cancer Project is committed to funding a breadth of scientists and research projects that investigate childhood brain cancer and treatment options. With the effects of treatment posing different developmental challenges to children, the need for bespoke cancer research for children remains imperative.

Australians are coming together to celebrate Pirate Day today and during the month of May for The Kids’ Cancer Project. Today, Naracoorte South Primary School will be holding a gold coin donation, pirate day dress-up for their staff, and 260 students. Interviews will be available with their student wellbeing ambassadors. This morning, the Cheeky Cycling Club in Sydney departed on a social bike ride from Clovelly to La Perouse to Coogee in their pirate-themed kits. Interview opportunities are available with one of the cheeky riders, Julie-Anne whose family has been impacted by brain cancer, twice. This Saturday, the Derwent Hunter Tall Ship in Cairns will be hosting a Pirate Day for local school children after a local family was impacted by brain cancer. This family will be on board but interview opportunities with them are TBC. Interviews are available with Mike and Sonia who are hosting the pirate day and are heavily involved in community activities. Next week, Shanty Clubs in Redfern, Marrickville, Sydney, and Canberra will be hosting a pirate-themed Shanty Night, dressed as and singing all about pirates. They will be selling TKCP bears to support the cause and interview opportunities with the passionate event organisers are available.

Funding scientific projects are the fastest way to cure and the money raised by Cheeky Cycling Club for The Kids’ Cancer Project will support research to help improve childhood cancer treatments, and ultimately survival. Funds raised through 2021 Pirate Day will be directed specifically to Dr Raelene Endersby’s scientific investigation into immunotherapy for children with brain cancer.
