Cancer turns life upside down.
While many children get to go to school every day, to learn, to play and to spend their lunch hour surrounded by friends, others have to sit in hospital facing challenges that no child or young person should ever have to face.
By bringing your school together in support of Redkite, you can help children and young people with cancer and their families when they need it most.
Why not have your students go red for Redkite in return for a gold coin donation or hold an entire Redkite Week dedicated to fundraising and building awareness of Redkite's important work?
Get REDiculous and invite your school community to don crazy wigs for a day in support of kids with cancer who, since their diagnosis, have felt self-conscious around their peers. Embrace everyone’s differences and unique personalities, and donate to Redkite in the process!
Music-a-thons are another great way to unite your school and participate in something special together, all whilst supporting a very worthy cause. If you play, practice or perform music, why not have the amount of time you spend on this sponsored for a week or two? Alternatively, have you considered a karaoke competition or even a talent quest? There are so many ways your school can help children and young people with cancer through the power of music.
No matter what activity you choose to do, by fundraising for Redkite, your school can make a real and positive difference. Get started today by setting up your online fundraising page here.
