The Wolfy Foundation is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, and marking that milestone in a practical way by supporting Cure Brain Cancer Foundation CEO Lance Kawaguchi’s extraordinary individual fundraising feat in December called the South Pole Trek 4 Cancer.
This trek is a significant step forward in global collaboration, where 23 charities so far, across five regions around the world, are coming together to raise awareness and funding for a cause that is very close to all their hearts.
The Wolfy Foundation is one of a handful of Australian-based charities that have come on board in that collaboration.
“Kawaguchi will be raising a flag at the South Pole to signify the importance of supporting cancer research, and the Wolfy Foundation stands by him,” director Alan Wolf said.
“We kindly ask for your support in raising funds for cancer research by making a donation in support of Lance’s trek.”
David Wolf lost his battle with brain cancer at age 23, and the foundation honours his life by serving people living with brain cancer, and their families.
Brain cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in adults aged under 40 in Australia, and kills more children than any other cancer.
Funds are distributed to registered charitable organisations that support brain cancer research, patient care, or guidance to families affected by the disease.
Kawaguchi feels proud to represent the Wolfy Foundation as he embarks on his journey to the South Pole, where he will raise a flag in honour of David’s life.
“As I prepare, I’m reminded of the profound impact he had on those who knew him, and the incredible work that The Wolfy Foundation has accomplished,” he said.
