About Red Ball Adelaide
The inaugural Red Ball Adelaide was held at the Adelaide Town Hall on Saturday 21 May 2016. Red Ball Adelaide raises funds for Fight Cancer Foundation’s education support program, Back on Track which launched at The Women’s and Children’s Hospital, Adelaide in early 2016 and helps children and young people receiving treatment for cancer at the hospital remain engaged with their education.
Back on Track is delivered in partnership with the Department for Education and Child Development Hospital School at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital, supported by TeamKids – Women’s & Children’s Hospital Foundation.
