About

Your blood is a remarkable thing. It keeps you alive by giving your body what it needs, taking away what it doesn’t and fighting off infection.

Sadly today, more than 110,000 Australians of all ages are living with the devastating effects of blood cancer, impacting hundreds of thousands of friends and family.

Blood cancer is one of the highest causes of cancer death in Australia, claiming more lives than breast cancer and melanoma combined.

Our movement began in the 70s, when a small band of people realised more could be done to save lives from a type of blood cancer called leukaemia.

Now, there are more than a hundred different types of blood cancer and related blood disorders, including lymphoma and myeloma.

Make A Difference

Bonnie Baczynski will never forget the day she was told her 4-year-old daughter, Arianna (pictured) had leukaemia. Two days later, they were on the Medi-Flight from regional Queensland down to Brisbane so Ari could begin treatment as soon as possible. The Baczynski family was finally able to return home just days before Christmas after nine months of treatment while taking sanctuary at the Leukaemia Foundation village.

By purchasing a ticket, you play a vital role in helping to beat blood cancers and make sure families facing blood cancer have a place to call home during treatment, someone to turn to, and access to the best possible care and treatment.

$8 of every ticket purchased supports the amazing work of the Leukaemia Foundation.

How it Works

District and the Leukaemia Foundation are partnering together for a major fundraiser to help give back to the more than 110,000 Australians of all ages who are living with the devastating effects of blood cancer. $8 of every ticket purchased goes towards the amazing work that the Leukaemia Foundation is doing in supporting people living with blood cancer.

Buying a ticket gets you unlimited access to explore with District from now until August 2nd. Get on the leaderboard by taking part in any of the seven Challenges in your city. Each challenge has a number of checkpoints to collect, including Discovery quiz questions, Time Trial sprints, and Hidden checkpoints.

Start at any checkpoint, and try to collect as many as you can before the 60-minute time limit expires. Complete each challenge at your own pace, at any time of the day, and complete them over and over as many times as you would like.

There will be amazing prizes for the top scorers overall. Plus, get entered to the lucky draw when you score 1,000+ points on any challenge for a chance to win a prize. Push your limits and know that every step is helping to give back to those in need.

How Does the Leukaemia Foundation Help?

The Baczynski family continue to travel once a month, from regional Queensland to the city, so Ari can receive treatment in hospital.

The Leukaemia Foundation is the only national organisation representing the needs of all people living with blood cancer in Australia and taking the lead in the blood cancer conversation.

Every day, the Leukaemia Foundation works towards ensuring all Australian families facing blood cancer, wherever they live, have equal access to the best treatment, trusted relevant knowledge and supportive care.

The range of support from the Leukaemia Foundation:

  • A network of blood cancer support staff providing practical assistance and emotional support to families when they need it most
  • No cost, self-contained accommodation for families from rural and regional Australia close to city hospitals
  • Investment to accelerate research, delivering rapid advancements in blood cancer diagnosis and treatment
  • Advocating for health service reform so all Australians have easy access to the very best blood cancer treatments.
