Supporting kids with cancer
What we do
In 1990, challenge evolved from an annual camping program, to become the first Victorian based organisation to provide families living with cancer a range of ongoing support and recreational activities.
In 1995, Challenge became an independent organisation after escaping from under the wing of the Australian Red Cross, and now gave full support 365 days a year.
In more recent times, 2011 saw Challenges biggest project to date, opening the Challenge Family Centre. The centre is now Challenges base of operations, and is also used as a place families living with cancer can hang out.
Challenge is giving its teenage members the opportunity to go and stay at Cumberland Resort in Lorne from the 12th till the 14th of December, where kids will enjoy many activities including: Surfing, Swimming in the ocean, Bodyboarding, Shopping, Tennis and Table Tennis, Video Games, Movies and much more...

The Challenge "Trip Of A Lifetime" this year gave eight Challenge kids the opportunity to go to the U.S.A for three weeks and experience all the amazing things you can do in America. Some of the highlights were: visiting Disneyland, seeing Magic Mountain, Hollywood and even going to Universal Studios.
