BRAIN WEEK 2018

MAY 7-11


Brain Week gives high school students across Australia a chance to make brains matter with fun, student-led activities.

During the week, students organise and host their own events to raise awareness, encourage healthy and fun brain-engaging activities, and raise much-needed funds for a fantastic cause.

Why Brain Week

Brain cancer is the #1 cancer killer of young people. Research is on the verge of breakthroughs, and your support can make the world of difference.
Brain Week is a time for the young, and the young at heart, to start a conversation about brain cancer and show the world the brain is where the heart lives.
Big or small, so much can make an impact for paediatric brain cancer.

Spend an hour or devote a week, there’s so many ways to get involved!
