Challenge Ball Committee

This annual fundraising event is driven and steered by our Challenge Ball Committee.

We are honoured to have a committee of dedicated and passionate members who work tirelessly to create a unique opportunity to unite, reflect and celebrate. It brings our families together and solidifies the connection and love that makes up our community of different families.

For 30 years, this event has raised much-needed funds to bring a little relief throughout the cancer journey, from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond. From the moments that brighten a day to surf camps, holidays, massages and parent support, Challenge services support the child, their siblings and parents, both in and out of the hospital.
