Following a child’s diagnosis, life changes significantly. Families begin a journey of uncharted territory, where they learn to adapt to a ‘new normal’ of life with cancer. Adjusting to these changes is difficult and takes its toll on every member of the family – patient, parent, and sibling(s).
This is where Challenge steps in. Sometimes you do not know what it is you need until someone shows you.
Challenge aims to manage the impact of a cancer diagnosis by addressing the emotional, social, and practical needs of your family. Whether it is help at home or a weekend away, we tailor our services to meet the requirements of each individual within the family unit.
Membership is free and available to families with a child aged 18 years old or under and who has been diagnosed with cancer or a life- threatening blood disorder. Siblings are also encouraged to sign up as members.
Some of our services include:
“When I found out my child had cancer I was in shock and didn’t know where to turn and how to deal with everything. I looked to Challenge for help, support and advice on how to get through this difficult period of time.”
There are plenty of ways you can enhance your #DoingItForJarrod event and we have compiled a list of different fundraising ideas you can incorporate into your campaign. Click here to download the document.
Feel free to brainstorm and try out other ideas too! This is your event, but we are here to help in whatever way we can.
To assist with promoting you event, we have created a range of content for you to use on various social media platforms. We have created files that are suitable for use on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter, as well as on your club website or as part of electronic communications with members.
Please note: on two of the tile options for Facebook (FB Tile_1 and FB Tile_2) and Instagram (Insta Tile_1 and Insta Tile_2) you will be able to add the date of your event to the bottom left corner. The easiest way to do this is to save the file into your Paint or Paint 3D program and add a text box over the space where you’d like to type the date.
We strongly encourage all clubs to promote their respective #DoingItForJarrod events across all available social media platforms. This will help not only promote your event, but garner more support for the campaign overall and create an even BIGGER sea of yellow. Make sure you use the #DoingItForJarrod campaign hashtag!
When you use these tiles on social media, don’t forget to include the following tags and handles as appropriate:
We also encourage all clubs to take photos on the day, post those photos to your social media pages, and email copies to email@example.com. Where possible, we will share your photos on our relevant social media pages (Jarrod’s Gift, Challenge and Leuk the Duck) and we will include a selection of images from around the country in our campaign newsletters that are sent to all of the clubs who register.
We have a wide range of Leuk the Duck and Challenge merchandise products available to purchase. All proceeds from the sale of these products goes back into our programs and services and allows us to continue supporting kids and families with cancer.
If you would like to order some additional products for your upcoming #DoingItForJarrod event, simply download the order form HERE, fill in the quantities required, and email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
