World's Biggest Dinner - Funding Cancer Research

I am always looking out for new experiences, wherever I may find myself.
Published May 9th 2020

The World's Biggest Dinner is a charity initiative from Cure Cancer that aims to raise money for cancer research and keep us all connected. It asks us to have virtual dinners with each other and use these as an excuse to fundraise for a good cause.

Your dinner can be anything you want and Cure Cancer encourages you to get creative. Perhaps have a pizza night and compete to make the craziest pizzas, make a birthday even more special, or just use the event as an excuse to see your friends and family virtually at a time when it's safest to stay apart physically.

Once you've come up with something you can find out how to register your event here. All money raised will be used by Cure Cancer to fund researchers wanting to reduce the number of Australians dying from cancer each year (it's almost 150,000 of us, a number that's only going up).

Cure Cancer is unique in that it focuses on funding early career researchers, who other institutions may not take a chance on (missing out on what they can offer). It also does not prioritise one kind of cancer, with 2020 research covering lung cancer, bone cancer, eye cancer, blood cancer, childhood cancer, breast cancer, brain cancer, ovarian cancer, immunotherapy and more.

Cure Cancer is also holding a Biggest Virtual BarbeCURE event on May 16, aiming to break a Guinness World Record by having 6000 people upload images of themselves having a barbecue. The record to be broken is 'the most photos of people barbecuing uploaded to Facebook in 12 hours'. You can find more information about that event on the Cure Cancer Facebook page.
