Campaigns & Challenges


You deserve some special treatment! This June is the last month of the financial year, and that means the busiest month for donations in Australia. Such a special month deserves special rewards, right? That's what The Giving Circle is all about.

The Goal

This month, we have set a bold goal to raise $500,000 for the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical research - with your help we can get there! It’s people like you who help the Perkins achieve their mission to improve the health of Western Australians through life-saving research that translates into new ways to prevent and treat disease.

Tax Deductions

More donations are made in this month than any other, and that’s because of the great tax deduction benefits for donors. This June is your best opportunity to fundraise! All donations over $2 are tax deductible, and your donors will get a tax receipt emailed to them directly - easy!

What is The Giving Circle?

The Giving Circle is about uniting as a community to make this goal possible! Let us personally thank you, and stand with us this June.

Simply raise $100 this month (if you are currently registered for 2017) or sign up for our Ride (if you are NOT currently registered for 2017) and we will reward your hard work.

Giving Circle Rewards:

1. Your signature will be beautifully printed on a special ‘Giving Circle’ banner

This banner will first be presented to the Perkins and then be displayed at the Ride in recognition of your commitment.

2. Your name will be featured on the Ride website and facebook page

We'll share your name alongside your fellow Giving Circle members' names at the top of this page for everyone to see.

3. You will be included in the Giving Circle video

Stay tuned for an exciting wrap-up video I'll put together at the end of June, dedicated to everyone in the Giving Circle.

4. Plus many more exciting Giving Circle exclusive rewards

When you register to Ride, you’ll join an incredible community of people with the same goal: to conquer cancer. Meet fellow rider, Christine Bartlem who was diagnosed with breast cancer aged 56.

‘Even though my mother had gone through breast cancer, it didn’t enter my thoughts that this could be a real possibility for me. My sister-in-law Terri, who was just 42, had been diagnosed five years earlier with breast cancer. It was around this time that we realised we were going to lose her despite her valiant efforts.’

Christine rides for a future without cancer, and has a team of 31 to ride with in October. You can join her!
