What We Do
A weekend festival
Since 2015 this camping event has the feel of a weekend festival with live bands, food stalls, merchandise, camp fires, memorial and candle ceremony, loads of activities to keep the kids entertained, raffles, auctions, guest speakers, traditional Aboriginal ceremonies, laughs and tears.
Where do the funds raised go?
Thanks to your generous support and the participation of over 600 people who camped out at the Wallan (Vic) event in 2019 we were able to raise a fantastic sum of $55,000. The total funds donated since 2015 are well over 200k. Camp4Cancer is proud to say that 100% of funds raised has been donated to Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre Victoria.
Camp4Cancer is proud to say that other locations around Australia are running events and raising money for:
Geelong(Vic) Andrew Love Cancer Centre, Brisbane Rare Cancers Australia, Mathoura (N.S.W.) Echuca Hospital Oncology Unit.
Where the funds go
The Founder Ben Roarty
About Ben The Founder
Camp4Cancer was originally founded and developed by Ben Roarty after losing both his parents to Cancer over a short time. His passion to create an event that was close to his heart has now lead to an event which has grown every year and touched the heart of many families.
Having always helped out with many charities for many causes, Ben and his friends and family decided to start Camp4Cancer.
Ben wanted to create an event where he could contribute any way he could to conquering cancer and has made it a lifelong goal to make a difference. With a great love of the outdoors he came up with a crazy idea to bring people together camping to raise funds for cancer research.
Ben knew that one person can make a difference, BUT not without the help and voices of the masses and after pulling in a few friends and family members in, Camp4Cancer came to life.
Ben has been fortunate to tour the incredible facilities of Peter Mac and meeting some of the incredible Scientists working tirelessly to find cures for this dreaded disease, Ben and his committee are satisfied in know all their hard work and 100% of the funds raised go to the charities supported.
Finally, the satisfaction of knowing the battle against cancer is making progress which makes Ben and his dedicated committee proud of Camp4Cancer that they created.
