We're a formidable force
Tour de Cure raises vital funds to support the researchers, surgeons and clinicians who dedicate their lives to finding a cure for cancer.
Through our magical, challenging and inspirational events we raise money to fund the boldest research, the most talented scientists and the ground-breaking projects that we believe will have the biggest impact on cancer.
From humble beginnings in 2007, the Tour de Cure community has grown to become a national movement of thousands of people, walking, running, riding and swimming to raise awareness and inspire support in the fight to cure cancer. The generosity of our supporters has enabled us to fund over 500 cancer projects and we’re proud to have contributed to 48 scientific cancer breakthroughs.
We're building momentum
Thanks to our supporters, we're getting closer to our dream of a world without cancer, but there's still an urgent need for more effective treatments to improve survival rates and quality of life.
“My family has been hit hard by cancer. My father died from lung cancer. My brother-in-law passed away from melanoma. Nathan, our first-born, recently passed away from melanoma. It's time there was an answer.”
Michael Jones, father, grandfather and new TDC rider
We're capturing people's imagination
From humble beginnings in Sydney in 2007, the TDC family has grown to become a national movement of more than 10,000 people, inspiring support across Australia.
Some people ride with us. Others come to heal. Many give up their holidays to volunteer with us and want nothing in return. Regardless of our personal stories, we’re united by a shared purpose: to cure cancer.
