Crunch 4 Kids: Get #quarantoned for kids with cancer

Harry Cunningham, Sydney Swans midfielder, calls for Australia to join the team that’s getting #quarantoned for kids with cancer this June.

Harry Cunningham, Redkite’s Ambassador, who has been maintaining his fitness in isolation since April, is keen to break a sweat and make an impact for children with cancer.

He’s recruiting people to join Redkite’s 20-day stomach-crunching challenge this June to raise much needed funds to support families going through their child’s cancer.

“Since the start of lockdown, I have kept physically active at home, not only to keep myself AFL ready, but for my own personal wellbeing.

Redkite’s Crunch 4 Kids not only encourages people to do something positive for their core strength and mental health, but everyone who participates in the challenge is showing kids going through cancer that you’re on their team.

Crunch 4 Kids is organised by Redkite, Australia’s leading childhood cancer support charity, which provides essential support such as free online, video and phone counselling, and financial assistance to families, as well as funding music therapists and social workers in children’s cancer wards around the country.

Participants set their crunch and fundraising goals and can do the challenge solo or recruit their own team.

With 2020 marking 20 years of partnership between Redkite and the Swans, Crunch 4 Kids is a core part of the anniversary celebrations and the club is fielding a team to complete the challenge.

Redkite CEO, Monique Keighery said she was grateful for the Swans’ support over the last two decades and was looking forward to seeing them join families from around the country to take part in the challenge in their home gyms or on their living room floors.

Every crunch crunched, and every dollar raised, will go towards providing essential support to kids with cancer and their families.

“This April, the number of support sessions delivered was 60% higher than the 2019 monthly average. These families need extra support at this time and for their communities to acknowledge and understand their unique challenge,” she said.

Harry said he couldn’t wait for the crunch challenge to begin: “When it comes to football, I’m on the best team in the world but I’m proud to let kids with cancer know I’m on their team too.”

Storytelling with a difference

How do you talk to a child about cancer and what’s happening to them? How do you help them express their feelings? Nothing about cancer is easy.
