Fight Cancer Foundation’s Footy Colours Day is a national fundraising campaign which helps kids with cancer.
Those kids need you now more than ever.
Kids with cancer are especially vulnerable to COVID-19, and are facing prolonged isolation due to their weakened immune system.
Whether it's a socially distanced BBQ, a virtual morning tea or simply wearing your footy colours, join us on the Footy Colours Day team to make a difference for kids with cancer this year!

We know things are going to look a bit different this year.
But that won't stop us from finding new and creative ways to come together to support kids with cancer in true Aussie spirit!
We have been busy building up our resources to ensure that whether your school, organisation, group or club is operating remotely, socially distanced or somewhere in between, we can help you host your best possible Footy Colours Day event! Visit our Tips & Ideas hub here.

The money you raise through Footy Colours Day funds Fight Cancer Foundation's education support programs. Our programs operate in major paediatric hospitals to help kids with cancer keep up with school while they are in hospital.
At just five years old, Maddy was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL).
"To keep your mind healthy and active it’s so important because these kids who are stuck in hospital have had their normal lives ripped out from underneath their feet.” - Lori, Maddy's mum
Jett was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer when he was just seven years old.
“I don’t know what we would have done without it. The program gave him a sense of normality. It takes their mind away from the horrible situation. It’s invaluable really.” - Mel, Jett's mum
