Yoga2Cure Organising Committee

Children's Cancer Institute

Get behind this incredibly worthwhile cause! As part of Yoga2Cure, students are to form a committee to host ongoing yoga classes to raise awareness about children's childhood cancer and simultaneously raise money for the cause. You will be responsible for organising, managing and coordinating the project.

In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, many events across NSW and Australia have been cancelled or postponed. This is having devastating effects on the critical funds needed for finding a cure for childhood cancer. The support of our community at this time is essential to us continuing our life-changing research. Yoga2Cure is an incredible opportunity to advocate our mission and develop fundraising strategies remotely. Due to the current COVID-19 crisis, this project can be managed remotely. A dedicated Children’s Cancer Institute supervisor will be available for support online.
