Tour Aotearoa for Cancer Research
Cyclists spin their wheels to raise funds for cancer research
AMRF friends, Tom Burgess and Chris Bird, know how it feels to lose loved family members to cancer.
For Tom, in honour of both his mother and mother-in-law, he's on his bike and is taking on the challenge of cycling from Cape Reinga to Bluff with Chris.
A mere 3,000 plus kilometres.
“I’m pledging all funds raised to AMRF and the cancer research they enable. This is my way of spinning the wheels of hope and backing research that opens new doors to our future every day.”
You can follow Tom and Chris’s journey on AMRF's social media pages or donate to his cause at www.GiveALittle.co.nz or right here on our website.
How you can make a life-changing difference
Donations are vital to help the Auckland Medical Research Foundation fund life-changing medical research – and 100% of that donation goes directly into research.
“The Foundation exists to improve health outcomes for all, through supporting medical research for the last 66 years. Every single cent, every single dollar goes directly into that research to grow hope, find new cures and provide more effective treatments,” Sue Brewster, Executive Director of AMRF, says.
The demand for funding support has never been greater. We invest across the spectrum of medical research that has the ability to change people's lives forever. This includes audiology conditions, neurological issues such as dementia and Parkinson's disease, cancers, bone health and stroke along with many more conditions.
Who is AMRF and what do we do?
AMRF was established in 1955, and in its 66 years has invested more than $84 million into a wide range of medical research. An endowment funds all of AMRF’s administration costs, enabling 100% of donations to go directly to medical and health research.
AMRF’s key focus is to financially support medical researchers and their projects led out of the greater Auckland region, assist in furthering their international collaborations and gaining invaluable off-shore knowledge along with repatriating medical researchers and scientists back to New Zealand.
