“Curing childhood cancer is very close to my heart and getting my head shaved is nothing compared to what these children face. I really appeal to everybody to get involved, it really is the most incredible event. Let’s together help cure every child with cancer."

Phil Kearns, CEO INTERrisk, Ambassador, Wallaby Legend

Sophia Symeou, CEO INS Career Management

"Well I’ve walked on fire, I've been dunked in ice and I'll even walk on glass which I am terrified about, and my company is doubling whatever funds are raised. Taking on a dare is nothing compared to what these kids face in cancer treatment daily. Join me on September 7 to help us fund a cure“

Lizzie Young, Director Nine Entertainment

“Why wouldn’t you want to cuddle a 15-kilo python for the Children’s Cancer Institute”
