Charity Protein Ballz - FAQs
How much from the sale of each ball will support cancer research?
$1 from the sale of each choc-coconut ‘charity’ protein ball will be donated to cancer research efforts for the National Breast Cancer Foundation (NBCF) and Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia (PCFA).
Where is the money actually going?
$1 Million = 13,000 hours of medical research.
$500,000 will be donated each to the National Breast Cancer Foundation and Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, after we have reached the $1 Million mark.
Will the money raised from the protein balls support specific research projects? Which ones?
The money raised from the choc-coconut 'charity' protein balls will support some of Australia’s most innovative and ground-breaking breast and prostate cancer projects to help stop deaths and improve the quality of life of the women and men affected.
These projects will improve the prevention and detection of the two cancers, while also helping to develop new and better treatments.
Why are the funds raised going to NBCF and PCFA?
The National Breast Cancer Foundation and the Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia are two of Australia’s leading charities investing in breast and prostate cancer research respectively. Combined, more than 6,000 Australians die of breast and prostate cancers each year, making them the second biggest cancer killers in Australia, according to Cancer Australia research.
Despite the obvious differences between a breast and a prostate, there are many similarities in their genetic and biological characteristics. This means that certain treatment options could be effective for both cancers, which are currently being explored through research.
Do I have to buy a ball or can I just donate?
Of course you can donate directly! We have links to both charity organisations on ittakesballz.com where you can pledge your cash money in support of the cause.
