IMPACT & USE OF FUNDS
Since 2012, thanks to the extraordinary commitment and dedication of thousands of Riders and Crew, the MACA Ride to Conquer Cancer® has raised over $23.5 million for Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research, and is the largest cycling fundraiser in Western Australia.
With your support, Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research is on a mission to improve the health of Western Australians through life-saving research that translates into new ways to prevent and treat disease. Closely linked to the major teaching hospitals, the Perkins is uniquely positioned to fast track the development of new treatments and new ways to diagnose cancer and other diseases, including tests that enable doctors to select the best approach for each patient. This enhances their ability to match individual patients to the treatments most likely to work for them with the aim of making personalised treatment a reality at last.
The world-leading doctors, researchers, scientists and clinicians at the Perkins use Ride funds to support cancer research, acquire new equipment and facilities, and retain experts to lead this vital work.
