Tour de Cure & The Scott Canner Young Investigators Grant
The Ms. Australia, New Zealand & Oceania World Universal are proud to be supporting Tour de Cure in raising funds for cancer research and for The Scott Canner Young Investigator Grant, a grant established by Tour de Cure and Robbie Canner, in honour of her son, Scott who lost his battle with cancer in 2011.
We're a formidable force
Tour de Cure raises vital funds to support the researchers, surgeons and clinicians who dedicate their lives to finding a cure for cancer.
Through our magical, challenging and inspirational events we raise money to fund the boldest research, the most talented scientists and the ground-breaking projects that we believe will have the biggest impact on cancer.
From humble beginnings in 2007, the Tour de Cure community has grown to become a national movement of thousands of people, walking, running, riding and swimming to raise awareness and inspire support in the fight to cure cancer.
The generosity of our supporters has enabled us to raise $75 million, fund 563 cancer projects, educate 175,000 school children on how to prevent cancer and we’re proud to have contributed to 50 scientific cancer breakthroughs.
The Scott Canner Young Investigators Grant (SCYIG)
On 8 August 2011, Robbie Canner lost her only son Scotty to Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. He was just 22 years old. Scotty was a Qantas cadet pilot, a junior Australian outrigger canoe champion and a much-loved member of the TDC family.
Proud mum, and a cancer survivor herself, Tour de Cure set up the Scott Canner Investigator Grant to ensure Scott’s legacy and to help find a cure for this terrible disease.

Bully Zero is Australia’s leading bullying prevention charity.
At Bully Zero, we believe that everyone in Australia should feel safe, valued and respected.
In 2009, prior to forming Bully Zero, Ali Halkic’s son Allem tragically fell victim to cyber bullying and tragically took his own life.
Following the tragic loss of his beautiful son, Ali and a small group of dedicated parents who had also experienced their own tragic loss, worked tirelessly to set up the new organisation with the belief that no parent should have to bury a child as a consequence of such insidious behaviour.
Bully Zero was officially launched in March 2013 by the Prime Minister, the Hon. Julia Gillard AC.
Bully Zero’s mission is simple – to prevent and reduce bullying through evidence-based education, advocacy, and support for all communities across Australia.
“Bullying isn’t a problem that makes headlines every day, but every day it touches the lives of people across Australia. No parent should have to bury a child as a consequence of such insidious behaviour.”
