Wood Days

CIKA is committed to providing funding for research into solid tumours

Wood Days - Cancer in Kids @ RCH - CIKA

The Wood Days Weekend is an annual event organised by Andrew and Christine Duyvestyn who have been untiring in their efforts to raise money for CIKA. It takes place over two days each November on their bush block in Milltown near Hamilton in Western Victoria, and has raised over three hundred thousand dollars so far to support research to find cures for the many forms of childhood cancer that continue to devastate so many families.

2018 saw the 23rd Annual Wood Days on November 10 and 11, and it won't be long before Andrew and Christine set about planning the 2019 event which will take place on November 9 and 10.

To accompany the event, a Wood Days calendar is produced each year. Sales augment the amount that is contributed by CIKA to the Royal Children's Hospital. It is available for purchase over the weekend and copies can usually be obtained for a month or so afterwards by contacting Andrew on 03 5576 1217 or 0457 612 171 or Christine on 0427 101 559, or by email to acduyvestyn@gmail.com
