EVENT FAQs

COVID–19

  • Why have you cancelled the in–person events?

    We have made the decision to cancel face to face events around the nation due to the evolving landscape of rolling COVID lockdowns, event and social restrictions, in addition to state and territory boarder closures. These significantly impact our ability to forward plan and deliver an event that keeps your safety – and those of our immunocompromised patients living with cancer – top of mind. Please know this decision comes with tremendous disappointment for our small team here at Pancare and whilst Covid has changed the way we do things, what hasn’t changed is our commitment to your health and safety.

  • What does this mean to my registration and fundraising?

    All participants registered for our in-person events in Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, Adelaide and Perth will now be rolled over to our Do It Your Way virtual event which will still take place on Sunday 24 October 2021.

  • I’d already registered for an in-person event – what happens now?

    All registration fees will be rolled over to our Do It Your Way event. However, we understand that your circumstances may have changed. With that in mind, if you would like to request the cost difference of your registration fee (in person event registration fee less DIY registration fee) be refunded please fill out this form and we can help process your partial refund. Otherwise, rest assured that your registration fee will go towards fundraising efforts to help deliver better outcomes for those impacted by pancreatic and upper GI cancers.

  • What happens to the funds I have already raised?

    Please know that all funds raised will still be put forward to our fundraising total to ensure we can direct funds to support our patient and carer support programs and research to improve outcomes for upper gastrointestinal cancers. We encourage you to keep up the amazing work! Your support, more than ever, is vital.
