    If you’re hosting an event, you can get people to bring donations upon entry or donate to your own unique online fundraising page.
  10. I'm stuck for ideas, what can I do?
    To celebrate Sick or Treat, all you need to do is host a Halloween-themed event this October and raise money to help Aussies living with rare and less common cancers. If you’re stuck for event ideas, we’ve got a whole heap of spook-errific inspiration for you on the Get Involved page to get the (eye)ball rolling for you!
  11. Where does my fundraising money go?
    Funds raised by you during Sick or Treat go directly to Rare Cancers Australia Ltd, a charity whose purpose is to improve awareness, support and help treat Australians diagnosed with a rare or less common cancer. We thank you for your support and generosity.

    Any amount, big or small, is graciously appreciated, and the awareness you will raise about the lesser-known hardships faced by rare and less common cancer patients in Australia will all help.
  14. Is there a dress code?
    Sick or Treat is a Halloween-themed campaign: anything and everything spooky and fun! Follow our social channels for more inspiration.
  15. Isn’t dressing up as a ghost or skeleton, etc. insensitive to cancer patients who may be facing their own mortality?
    As long as your Sick or Treat event is thrown in good taste and raises funds and awareness for rare cancers, it will be a great way to contribute meaningfully to your community and should not cause offence to anyone.
  16. Isn't Halloween just for Americans?
    Whether you love it or loathe it, more and more Australians are celebrating Halloween every year. It looks like Halloween is here to stay, so we figure why not embrace it in the best way possible and turn it into something really positive that will benefit Australians? Sick or Treat is a great way to justify the ‘indulgence’ aspect of Halloween and flip the notion on its head, by putting an Aussie twist on the celebration with added values of giving, goodness and fairness to what some have viewed as a dark, commercialised holiday. Let good prevail!
  17. What other RCA events are there?
