Inspired by the heartbreaking loss of two family members to cancer, an 18-year-old sparked a movement that brought the community together for a cause close to many hearts.


The local Rapid Relief Team, RRT Newtown, served 450 meals at the charity match, showcasing our drive to eliminate cancer and support those affected by the disease.


Amidst the enthusiasm and community spirit, there are overlooked facts about cancer that deserve attention; cancer is the leading cause of death worldwide, accounting for millions of deaths each year. Cancer also isn’t just one disease; there are over 100 types of cancer, each with its own treatments.


Despite advances in research and treatment, there are still mysteries surrounding the disease. Events like KickAbout4Cancer not only raise vital funds but highlight the unknowns, driving progress in the fight against cancer.


KickAbout4Cancer highlights the power of addressing worldwide issues within each small community. Newtown’s response demonstrates that real change starts from within our communities, driven by ordinary people with extraordinary goals.


This event was more than just a football match; it was a beacon of hope and unity in the fight against cancer.
