Together, let's #Forkcancer

Host a night of feasting, fun and fundraising! Together, let's raise funds for lifesaving cancer research through CQShines, one forkful at a time. 

What is The Longest Table?

Join us by hosting a Longest Table and help fund urgently needed cancer research. Every day, 444 Australians are diagnosed with cancer. By hosting a Longest Table, you can help support lifesaving research towards prevention, detection, management and treatment. 

While the official date is Saturday 22 July, you can choose to host you Longest Table anytime until 31 August.  

Let's come together and set the table for a brighter future without cancer. 

Join CQShines in the fight!

CQ shines is dedicated to supporting the public hospital and health services across the Central Queensland region. In our mission for better health and brighter futures, we’re committed to fighting cancer. By hosting a Longest Table, you can help those battling this devastating disease, honour those we have lost, celebrate survivors, acknowledge carers and fight for those who will sadly face this fight in the future. 

All donations from your Longest Table will #ForkCancer through critical funding for education, training and research in medical and health science which will advance, support and promote public health across Central Queensland.

Fighting cancer, one forkful at a time

Since launching The Longest Table 10 years ago, our community has raised over $2.4 million for cancer research. But we're not stopping there. 

Your support as a host of The Longest Table will help us fund more cancer research projects, improving and saving even more lives from cancer!
