About Us

Here is a snapshot of how, during 2020, CanTeen in Australia has been able to support a young person, their family and their healthcare team to tackle their cancer-related challenges head on.

Why is Life Cycle Important to CanTeen?

“Life Cycle is Canteen’s biggest community fundraiser and over the past 23 years has raised over 2.5 million dollars for CanTeen! CanTeen is incredibly grateful for the funds and awareness which Life Cycle has raised. These funds raised by Life Cycle have been vital to ensure that we can continue to run our programs and provide a much needed service for young people living with cancer in Australia.

We value Life Cycle because it’s a fantastic community event which brings everyone together to make sure that no young person faces cancer alone.

The funds raised by Life Cycle have provided 20,000 young people with the chance to attend a program where they can meet other young people in the same boat.

Life Cycle also provides the opportunity for a group of members to participate in the first half of the ride each year. This gives the Members a chance to develop their public speaking skills by sharing their personal cancer story with the supporters.

Life Cycle epitomises the best of a community fundraising event and without Life Cycle we wouldn’t be able to support as many young people!

Thank you from all the staff and members at Canteen”
