The Kids’ Cancer Project is an independent national charity supporting childhood cancer research. Since 1993, thanks to strong community support, the charity has contributed tens of millions of dollars to scientific research projects to help children with many types of cancer.

Founder, Col Reynolds OAM, has a steely focus to make a difference to the lives of kids living with cancer. It all started on an ordinary day in the late 1980s when Col chanced upon meeting children affected by the disease at Camperdown Hospital in Sydney. Touched by their spirit, he made it his personal mission to help in any way he could. Very early in his quest, Col learned the only way to improve outcomes for these children is through advances in medical research.

Now NSW Rugby Union are joined in partnership with The Kids’ Cancer Project to raise awareness and funds for scientific discovery to ensure the one hundred per cent survival of children with cancer while eradicating the harmful impacts treatment can bring.

Together with the rugby community, we can support the science that will lead to kinder, more effective treatments for the 950 children and young adults diagnosed each year.
