Dry July Foundation: Funding our national 13 11 20 service
We are grateful to the Dry July Foundation for supporting Cancer Council for seven years through the Dry July campaign. Since 2019, funds raised through Dry July have gone towards funding our vital 13 11 20 information and support service where our specialists provide confidential cancer information to more than 37,000 callers across Australia each year. Without support from partners like the Dry July Foundation and our community, we couldn't run vital services, such as 13 11 20, for people impacted by cancer and their loved ones.
