All money raised through donations to the Morri 2 Africa fundraising adventure are donated directly to the Cancer Society, and will go towards the cancer research fund, to benefit all victims of cancer now and in the future.
Cancer is New Zealand's single biggest cause of death. Most New Zealanders will have some experience of it – either personally or through a relative or friend. Many cancers can be cured if they’re found and treated in time. It is estimated that in New Zealand, about 1 person in every 3 who gets cancer is cured. Even if the cancer cannot be cured, more effective treatment means many people are now living longer.
