Welcome and thank you for supporting the Mark Hughes Foundation’s 


By getting your school, friends, team, crew, group or workmates together to wear a beanie and donate to the MHF you are helping us tackle brain cancer. 

You may be surprised to discover brain cancer kills more children in Australia than any other disease and it kills more adults under 40 than any other cancer yet it receives less than 5% of government cancer funding*.

That is why your efforts are so important so join us to raise some funds raise awareness and we’ll raise our hats to you. 


I am an individual and I'd like to hold a Beanie for Brain Cancer fundraiser!

Great! You can fundraise on your own but it would be so much more fun in a team (you can set this up once you register). Ask friends to join your team, nominate your “Beanie Day”, all wear a beanie on that day and make a donation to help us tackle brain cancer! To get started just click on the START FUNDRAISING button on the right of the page.

I'm representing a company & we'd like to hold a Beanie for Brain Cancer fundraiser!
