The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation (TPCHF) was formed in 1986 with the primary goal of funding critical research at The Prince Charles Hospital. Today TPCHF has become a major research funding body focusing on the areas of heart, lung, dementia, arthritis among others. We’re proud to support The Prince Charles Hospital which is one of the world’s leading heart and lung hospitals.
An initiative of The Prince Charles Hospital Foundation, The Common Good is a team of businesses and individuals who are joining forces with researches to tackle disease that face us all. By directly supporting researchers, we can channel our resources into the medical conditions we care about. The Common Good is here to prove that everyday people can make things happen.
This year, I’m taking part in the bike ride for Cycle of Giving, to raise funds and awareness for transplant research and awareness for organ donation.
At any one time, there are about 1500 Australians waiting for an organ or tissue donation to save their lives. Without medical research finding better ways to source, match and transplant organs, this list is only going to get bigger. The money I raise for the 2018 Cycle of Giving will go towards key research organ transplant projects at The Prince Charles Hospital.
Just $44 funds one hour of important medical research. My goal is to power at least 5 hours’ worth of research funds.
