Welcome to Tassie Dancers Against Cancer
Tassie Dancers Against Cancer was born after losing my mum to cancer, as well as a beautiful young dancer and a staff member, with all this loss and pain, raising money for Cancer just seemed like the right thing to do.
Like many who have been touched by Cancer I was endeavouring to put those feeling of helplessness into something positive. There is the hope that fundraising efforts may make a difference to cancer patients and helps families going through this awful time in their lives.
Over the years Tassie Dancers Against Cancer has grown to encompass our annual ‘A Chance to Dance’ day and Showcase Gala evening event. These events are well supported by the Tasmanian dance community and bring together a wide range of dance styles and abilities giving everyone the opportunity to perform on stage and in front of an audience in a supportive and welcoming environment.
In 2019, we celebrated our biggest year yet, with the opportunity to work with and support the amazing Samuel Johnson and Love Your Sister!
With the support of the Tasmanian Dance community we raised an astonishing $30,000 for Love Your Sister, with 100% of this going directly towards their cancer vanquishing mission!
2019 Funds Raised – $30,000
It’s Sammy here from LYS HQ with MASSES of gratitude for supporting our attempts to vanquish cancer immediately. You’re a dead set legend in my book and I definitely owe you a milkshake. We pass 100% of your donation directly to our country’s best researchers, to help cure ALL cancers.
Thank you for your trust. May all your families soon be cancer-free.
Very truly yours,
The proudest brother in the world
