Feb 2 is Neuroblastoma Awareness Day.  It also marks the start of our 7 days 7 ways campaign to raise awareness about this terrible disease.  

Too few people are familiar of the impact of neuroblastoma.  As a small charity, one of our biggest challenges is spreading the word

For our 7 days 7 ways campaign we want to get more people listening…and we need your help!  Across 7 days there are 7 ways you can show your support:

1. Support Neuroblastoma Awareness Day (Feb 2, 2023) 

Post a frangipani photo to your social pages and share our Awareness Day image that we'll post to our pages on February 2.

2. Change your social media profile

Update your social media page profile image with our frangipani inspired social tile. 

As more and more of us connect and communicate via social media, this simple update to your profile can help increase awareness about neuroblastoma.   

It may also prompt an important conversation about why supporting neuroblastoma matters and how other people can help make a difference to children who are diagnosed with this terrible childhood cancer.  

3. Hold a Pink and Yellow Picnic

On Saturday Feb 4 or Sunday Feb 5 get together with your friends and family to hold a Pink and Yellow Picnic. Be inspired by the colours of our frangipani logo and create a themed picnic. 

4. Sign-up for Run2Cure 2023

Join our amazing community on April 2 in Sydney's Domain for our signature event

Sign-up and tell everyone why Run2Cure is important to you on your fundraising page. Add an image and share away! To make the day even more fun, get a group together and dress up on the day.

5. Plan and host a community fundraising event

From a garage sale to a Bunnings sausage sizzle, there are plenty of ways you can gather your community to raise awareness about Neuroblastoma and fundraise to help find better and more effective treatments. 

We've had families and supporters hold so many different types of community events to attract attention - from sausage sizzles to crazy haircuts, sponsored treadmill runs to lemonade stands...what can you do?

6. Wear a frangipani every day

Whether you choose to wear our frangipani t-shirt featuring an exclusive Ken Done frangipani or buy a frangipani tote bag created by artist Craig Waddell, you can raise awareness about neuroblastoma every day.   

Our online store  has lots of other awareness-raising merchandise, including pins, badges and car stickers.

7. Create a Facebook fundraiser campaign

Plan a Facebook Fundraiser. This fundraiser is a simple and effective way to raise awareness and generate much needed funds for research.

Facebook allows you to share your fundraiser super easily to your contacts and you can include details about the disease and why it is important to get a cure. 

You can run a fundraiser at any time for any reason, but the most popular way is to create one for your birthday where a lot of friends are likely to read your fundraiser.
