How Peta-Jane raised over $26,000!

Peta-Jane is a great example of how everyday people like you are able to raise money for women’s cancer research.

“In 2018 I raised nearly $16,000 for the Walk for Women's Cancer! It’s a cause that is close to my heart, because in March 2017 I was diagnosed with breast cancer.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2017, so I have first-hand knowledge of the value of medical research into women's cancers. My cancer experience was made easier by advancements in medical research, and by participating in the Walk I was able to support the work of The Perkins Institute so that other women will be able to say the same.

My number one tip for others fundraising for this event is to bring your friends and family together in your efforts to fundraise, rather than just ask people for donations. Not only does this increase your fundraising potential, but it allows you to promote awareness of women's cancers and the importance of medical research at the same time (as well as have some fun!). I managed to raise over $26,000 for my walk in 2019. This was only possible because of the incredible generosity of my family and friends (and friends of friends).

I decided to host a quiz night fundraiser because I felt this would be an enticing way of gathering people I know (and some I didn't) under the one roof to support the cause and have some fun at the same time. I hired my local community hall for the event and asked my family and friends to gather together a team of eight and purchase a table. This approach worked really well, as it meant that people outside of my own personal network (that is, friends of friends) attended the quiz night as well, which boosted table numbers and fundraising potential.

In addition to ticket prices, I raised money through the sale of alcohol (I had obtained a liquor licence for the event) and raffle tickets, and also a live auction. All raffle prizes and auction items were very generously donated by family and friends. It took a lot of organisation but it was such a great night and – thanks to the support shown by everyone in attendance –  a real fundraising success!”
