Community Fundraising

We have been fortunate to receive support through various avenues, including active participation in community activities, generous gifts in wills, fruitful corporate partnerships, invaluable trusts and foundations, successful appeals, and enthusiastic participation in our diverse fundraising events.

ANZUP extends its heartfelt appreciation to our invaluable donors and supporters who have consistently stood by us, empowering ANZUP’s practice-changing multidisciplinary collaborative clinical trials. Your continued support plays a pivotal role in driving our mission forward and making a tangible difference in the lives of those affected by these cancers.

Breakfast Point Men’s Shed

John Bush and the Breakfast Point Men’s Shed team have been great supporters of ANZUP since 2018 at our Pedalthon events and local community events to raise funds and awareness for below the belt cancer.

On 29th September 2023, the Men’s Shed with the support of Ashfield Bunnings Warehouse put on a community sausage sizzle. The event achieved an impressive fundraising total of $3006.88 for below the belt cancer research. This impressive amount is an addition to their ongoing fundraising endeavours.

A heartfelt thank you goes out to the Breakfast Point Men’s Shed for their exceptional dedication in raising both awareness and funds for the 2023 Sydney Pedalthon. Your efforts are truly commendable.



The City2Surf was back in Sydney on Sunday 13 August 2023. Bringing 80,000+ people together from all walks of life to run, jog, walk or stroll the iconic 14km course from Sydney CBD to Bondi Beach.

In the previous year, Steven Guy joined as a walker and fundraiser, raising an impressive $1,441.50 for ANZUP’s research on below the belt cancers. Sadly, Steven’s battle with kidney cancer, which he bravely fought since 2019, ended in 2023.

Alyce Comey, a close friend of Steven Guy, showed her support for the ANZUP by participating in the 2023 City2Surf event in memory of Steven. Her dedication resulted in a fundraising total of $667. We sincerely appreciate her efforts in contributing to below the belt cancer research.

Sydney Rams Tenpin Bowling Club

On 26th September 2023, the Sydney Rams Tenpin Bowling Club came together for an unforgettable Charity Bingo night. This special event was dedicated to raising funds for ANZUP in memory of our dear friend and long-time supporter, Steven Guy, who passed away earlier this year.

Through cash donations and other fund-raising activities on the evening, a donation of $1,750 has been made to ANZUP on behalf of The Sydney Rams.

Thank you for your generosity Sydney Rams Tenpin Bowling Club. Let’s continue Steven Guy’s legacy of support for ANZUP.


Bribie Island Bowls Club

The Bribie Island Bowls Club launched an inspiring Charity Month in September 2023, dedicated to driving critical medical research and support for major cancers and diseases. We’re grateful that ANZUP’s Below the Belt Research Fund has been selected as one of the foundations to receive support.

The event featured compelling guest speakers who shared their personal stories, inspiring us all to make a difference.

Throughout Charity Month, a remarkable total of $17,500 was raised to share amongst the five foundations. A generous donation of $3,500 was presented to ANZUP, bringing us one step closer to the mission of improving the lives of people affected by bladder, kidney, testicular, penile and prostate cancers.


Andrew Batch proved his dedication to support ANZUP by enthusiastically participating in our Below the Belt Melbourne Pedalthon 2024. 

Andrew is a dual cancer survivor having been diagnosed with kidney cancer in October 2022 resulting in his right kidney being removed with a 1kg tumour in it. Just one month later, Andrew was diagnosed with an aggressive form of prostate cancer which metastasised in his bones. A combination of chemotherapy and hormone therapy have helped greatly. 

I am now an advocate for telling people I meet to get regular testing and not ignore any health issues. I don’t want them to end up learning the mistakes I made. I feel if us guys can start talking more freely about such issues, it can only lead to better outcomes” – Andrew Batch
