My Active May

Do you love to run, swim, cycle or play sports? Challenge yourself to get active this May and raise funds to beat cancer!

I'll make my moves count!

How to Move

Make your commitment to get active this May!

Take on a fitness challenge and start moving for a month, a fortnight or a week. It’s your challenge - you get to choose how long, where and how you’ll get active this May.

It may be tough but think how good you’ll feel to do something positive for your health while raising funds for Australians affected by cancer.

Join us in My Active May for a cancer free future!

Make up your own challenge

Whether it’s setting a daily step challenge for 31 days, cycling to work every day or and ocean swim, YOU will get moving in May for a world without cancer!

Not a runner, swimmer or just looking for something else to motivate you this May, why not try zumba, pilates, surfing, ultimate frisbee or tai chi and put your body to the test to help those affected by cancer.

Some of our most popular challenges are bowls days, golf days, football days and tennis tournaments. But don’t let that limit you!

Show off your competitive side and get your friends and family together for a great day out and team up for My Active May.

Case study: Butler Family Soccer Team

Meet the Butler Family: 3 generations of people whose lives have been affected by cancer.

After losing their grandparents to cancer and having many cancer survivors in their family, the Butlers decided to join the fight against cancer.

They created a soccer team and challenged Woy Woy FC to a pre-season game at Austin Butler Memorial Oval, named after their grandfather.

“Not only was this an opportunity for the first and reserve grade teams to play a pre-season game, it was also a fantastic way to raise money to help all those affected by cancer. We had a ball!” they told us.

The Butler Family raised over $2,500 to fight cancer!
