Cancer Council announces new partnership with Qantas Assure

1st March 2018 - Cancer prevention Community events

Cancer Council has announced a new partnership with insurance provider Qantas Assure, to help Australians ward off cancer by living a healthy lifestyle. All funds raised through the partnership will go towards world-class cancer research, regional program delivery, and information and support services to help those affected by cancer.

The partnership will kick off with The March Charge, Cancer Council’s exercise challenge where participants set themselves a walking or running target for the month of March. For the first time, participants can earn up to 3,000 Qantas Points by raising money for Cancer Council and hitting their kilometre target.

“Partnering with Qantas Assure is a great way for us to encourage more Australians to lead a healthy lifestyle,” says Jeff Mitchell, Cancer Council CEO. “We know that keeping active can help reduce people’s chance of developing cancer, so working together on The March Charge seemed like a natural fit – and will ultimately help us get closer to a cancer-free future.”

Qantas Loyalty CEO, Olivia Wirth, said, “We’re all about promoting wellbeing at Qantas Assure and rewarding our members for leading active lifestyles. That’s why we’re delighted to partner with Cancer Council on this initiative to help motivate more Australians and incentivise March Chargers to reach their goals.”
