We're a formidable force
We’re mums, dads and grandparents. We’re office workers, tradies, business owners and retirees.
We're ordinary people who care passionately about curing cancer. Together we're the TDC family.
Together we will find the answers.
“Tour de Cure is one of the only charity organisations I’ve come across that has a pulse, a heart and passion.”
Meg Nuttall, TDC Rider
We're building momentum
Cancer research has been very successful at driving up survival rates. We're getting closer to our dream of a world without cancer, but there's still an urgent need for more effective treatments, capable of improving survival and quality of life. With your support, we will achieve this.
We're covering ground
Through our magical, challenging and inspirational tours and events across Australia, we raise money to fund the boldest research, the most talented scientists and the groundbreaking projects that we believe will have the biggest impact on cancer.
We're passionate about cycling – it's in our DNA – but we cover ground to cure cancer in many different ways: walking, swimming, running, dancing.
“My family has been hit hard by cancer. My father died from lung cancer. My brother-in-law passed away from melanoma. Nathan, our first-born, recently passed away from melanoma. It's time there was an answer.”
Michael Jones, father, grandfather and new TDC rider
We're capturing people's imagination
From humble beginnings in Sydney in 2007, the TDC family has grown to become a national movement of more than 10,000 people, inspiring support across Australia.
Some people ride with us. Others come to heal. Many give up their holidays to volunteer with us and want nothing in return. Regardless of our personal stories, we’re united by a shared purpose: to cure cancer.
We meet strict reporting standards
Tour de Cure is a registered Australian Tier 1 Charity with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission.
We seek to maximise the efficiency and effectiveness of our operations, while focusing on our mission to cure cancer.
We're an open book
We report on every project we fund so you can see the impact your donations are having in the fight to beat cancer.
Our promise to you
We appreciate every single donation we receive, and ensure that every dollar goes where it is needed most.
As an events-based company, we're proud that more than 70% of our income goes straight into funding world-class cancer projects.
For every dollar we receive:
- 70.3 cents goes to cancer projects
- 25 cents is invested in events to generate future income
- 4.7 cents is spent on essential administration
TDC is your opportunity to affect change
When people with passion come together, we can achieve so much more.
Join the TDC family and let's cure cancer together.
“It's a cause very close to my heart and with a terrific, fun and inspiring group of people. If cancer has a positive, Tour de Cure is it.”
Ann Smith, TDC Support Crew and Volunteer
