The Longest Table is The Hospital Research Foundation (THRF) Group’s annual peer-to-peer cancer fundraising campaign. It encourages people to host a dinner with friends to save lives from cancer by fundraising to support vital cancer research and patient care.
In 2021, for the first time THRF Group is partnering with charities across Australia who have a similar purpose; to help save more lives from cancer. Together, we aim to raise more funds for cancer research and patient care programs in hospitals nationwide.
As a host, if there is a participating charity partner in your region, you will be able to select an additional Charity Partner and elect to direct 55% of your fundraising to this charity. The remaining funds you raise will go to support cancer research and programs through THRF Group.
Our aim with this program is to provide hosts from all around Australia a chance to fundraise and #ForkCancer!
Charlies Foundation for Research is the primary fundraising partner for medical research at Sir Charles Gairdner and Osborne Park Hospitals. They bring together researchers, staff, patients, donors, sponsors, and partners, providing over a million dollars in funding every year to support pioneering, world-class research projects in Perth.
Charlie’s Foundation fund translational or patient centred projects and clinical trials with the most potential to improve care and outcomes for patients. They support new research, enabling highly promising projects – projects that might otherwise struggle to find funding – to gather the preliminary data and momentum they need to secure significant grants from peak bodies.
Over the last two years, Charlies Foundation for Research has invested over $250,000 into world-class translational cancer research and projects, including: Malignant Pleural disease, NASH Cirrhosis, malignant pleural mesothelioma, Brachytherapy, thoracic cancers, and the WA Youth Cancer Service Centre.
With the generous support of donors, the Foundation has funded the WA Youth Cancer Service Centre to facilitate programs for young people between 15-25 having treatment for cancer in WA hospitals. These programs give young people with cancer a chance to meet others who have been through similar experiences and reduce the sense of isolation, improve well-being, confidence, and self-esteem.
Like THRF Group, Charlies Foundation for Research is 100% funded through the support of the community and does not receive any funding from the state or federal government.
We’re excited to partner with a number of individuals and organisations who help to make the Longest Table the great event it is!
