A diagnosis of childhood cancer changes everything for a family. When the everyday challenges feel impossible, Redkite is a lifeline helping families make it through.

That’s why in any month of your choice, you can get moving and raise funds to help families facing childhood cancer.

With help from your community, you can provide counselling to families, keep food on the table with grocery vouchers, and help cover the costs of accommodation for rural families who need to drop everything at short notice to be with their child in hospital for weeks at a time.

Challenge yourself, run or walk 100km for the good of families facing childhood cancer – join us today.


Run with Jamie

When Jamie was just 2, he was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukaemia.

Redkite was there with emotional and practical support to get his family through those terrifying times.

Jamie and his mum Nicky are taking part in the Sun
Up Challenge to help more families like them.

"We're looking forward to doing the Sun Up Challenge - it's an awesome way to celebrate each day!"

"By doing this challenge we are not only raising money to help other families that go along this same journey as Jamie but it also helps us challenge ourselves to embrace a healthier outlook!"
