Donation Assisting Vital Research Into Childhood Cancer
“It’s partnerships with corporates like GJK Facility Services that help us help kids with cancer”.
A charity partner of GJK’s Giving Back Program, GJK has been supporting The Kids’ Cancer Project, an Australian National independent charity for several years.
Founded by Col Reynolds OAM in 1993, The Kids’ Cancer Project’s mission is to help make a difference in the lives of kids living with cancer by raising money for research to improve childhood cancer treatments. Col’s promise is “to never give up until every child survives cancer with minimal or no long-term effects“.
“It is partnerships with corporates like GJK Facility Services that help us help kids with cancer. Be it through employees volunteering to help pack bears for our Bears Program or assisting us at the fundraising events we run to donating monies to assist our various research projects, they are vitally important part of enabling our organisation to undertake the research required to improve childhood cancer treatments,” said Patrick Phibbs Head of Partnerships at The Kids’ Cancer Project.
GJK Facility Services’ also play a pivot role as a matching partner for K’day which is The Kids’ Cancer Project giving day on February 15 (International Childhood Cancer Day). GJK’s donation will be matched by TKCP community, effectively doubling the impact on childhood cancer.
“Working with charities, like The Kids’ Cancer Project, has always been part of GJK’s DNA thanks to our Founder and Managing Director, George Stamas AM. We hope our recent donation assists The Kids’ Cancer Project in the extremely important research they are undertaking,” said CEO Elias Stamas.
