Last year there were record registrations in Sydney and Canberra. Not only did participants have fun, they raised $40,000 for childhood cancer research.

In 2009, Gear up Girl participants raised $40,000 for cutting-edge research programs across the country. Funding research into childhood cancers is the vital component to finding cures and saving lives. Getting involved in the Gear Up Girl program with a group of friends is a great way to get active and socialize, and be a part of changing the outcome for kids diagnosed with cancer.
