Wood Days

CIKA is committed to providing funding for research into solid tumours


Wood Days - Cancer in Kids @ RCH - CIKA

Andrew and Christine Duyvestyn have been untiring in their efforts to raise money for CIKA. In the twenty three years during which they have run their Old Time Wood Days on their bush block in Western Victoria, they have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to support research to find cures for the many forms of childhood cancer that continue to devastate so many families. After the success of the 22nd Annual Wood Days in 2017, preparations are now underway for this year's event.
