Books For Cancer
Cristelle rediscovered a love of books and reading when her son Taiyo was diagnosed with T-cell Lymphoblastic Leukaemia at the age of 2. Wanting to marry her love of reading with fundraising, Cristelle decided to approach prominent authors and ask for signed copies of their books to add to a prize pool for a raffle.
Garnering donations from various authors, including the Hon. Julia Gillard, Trent Dalton & Jane Harper to name a few, Cristelle developed and ran a unique, successful and passionate fundraiser to support families just like hers.
Mark Matthews, a local to Wollongong, NSW has been running Music-a-thons' where he holds regular, end of term music concerts. His students get the chance to hone their public performance skills in front of their mums and dads, and often experience a professional musician who performs alongside the students, who come and donate their time for the event as well. These concerts, and others, which are open to the public are effectively fun-raisers! with door proceeds contributing to Redkite.
The Sorrento Saints, a passionate group of netballers in WA have supported the Redkite for the past 3 years and so far has raised approximately $10,000 over this time.

On the 10th May 2012 Bryson Challacombe was diagnosed with a form of cancer called rhabdomyosarcoma – a tumour in the cavity behind his left eye. 6 months later he passed away. During the toughest period of his life, unfailing support was received from Redkite - a group we now want to thank. On the 8th June 2013 we hosted a a Trivia Night to celebrate what would have been the 21st birthday of Bryson Challacombe. On the night we also ran a Silent Auction to raise funds for the amazing Redkite who have provided unconditional support and deserve ours in return. Since this time, further fundraisers have taken place and plans for more to come.
