Footy Colours Day is Fight Cancer Foundation’s national community fundraising event which asks participants to host an event at their school, organisation, group or club and wear their favourite footy colours for kids with cancer.
More than ever we need your help to raise much-needed funds for kids with cancer.
We are working hard to make sure that you can partake in Footy Colours Day whenever and wherever you like. Whether that’s with a socially distanced morning tea, virtual get-together or traditional end of term celebration.
An online fundraising page acts as a mini webpage for your event. It allows you to collect donations online, without the need for cash, and send a link out to friends and family far and wide! You can create your own online fundraising page here.
To ensure as many of the funds raised by Footy Colours Day participants are directed to our education support programs, we have made the decision to stop sending physical participation packs. We have a range of resources, including posters, available for free download in the Tips & Tools section of our website. We apologise for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.
Keep an eye out for our email which contains your unique supporter number and banking instructions form.
All the money you raise through Footy Colours Day funds Fight Cancer Foundation’s education support programs which help kids with cancer keep up with school during cancer treatment and recovery. You can read more about your impact here.
We have so many wonderful participants each year who continually blow us away with both their support and creativity. The Hall of Fame is our way of saying thanks and spotlighting participants for their incredible Footy Colours Day spirit!
