Cancer Council Tasmania
Cancer Council Tasmania is a not for profit organisation working to reduce the prevalence and impact of cancer in Tasmania. Hawthorn Football Club works to raise much needed funds and awareness aimed at realising the hopes of a cancer free future.
“Cancer Council Tasmania is 90% funded by the generosity of the Tasmanian community. Fundraising events such as the Pink Ribbon Game go towards support services, health and cancer prevention programs and also contributes to cancer research with all funds raised being spent in Tasmania.” Cancer Council Tasmania CEO, Penny Egan.
On average, 8 Tasmanians are diagnosed with cancer each day, thus highlighting the importance of this partnership to strive for a cancer free future.
