Make a difference this Red Nose Day

Oct 31 – Nov 18

Change someone’s life

Your Red Nose Day donation will help fund vital research into the treatment and cures of serious health conditions that affect our kids.



Cure Kids

Our purpose is simple

At Cure Kids, every single day our researchers are driven to find the cures for serious health conditions that affect many of our children. We focus on raising funds to enable high-impact medical research to find the cures our kids need. With the amazing support of New Zealand, Cure Kids have been funding ground-breaking research for the past 45 years. We need your support to understand more about the health conditions and disease that affect our kids so we can find better ways to treat and even cure them.

Red Nose Day is our annual, national appeal. Over $1million was raised last year, and this year is set to become our biggest fundraising effort yet. Join us this Red Nose Day and raise funds to fund vital medical research.

Our gorgeous ambassador Jenna finally received her precious freedom wig this week. Jenna, who lives with alopecia, down syndrome, hole in heart and type-1 diabetes has wished for hair forever, and we’re beyond happy to see Jenna rocking her new hair.

Jenna’s mum Tracy cried after seeing Jenna with her new freedom wig, saying “It’s amazing to finally give our little girl the one thing she’s been asking for – it’s like Christmas in our house.”

You look beautiful Jenna. Thank you for brightening our day and inspiring all of us.

April marks autism awareness month. Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental condition affecting around 1 in 68 children in New Zealand; about 14,000 children. An estimated $2billion per year is spent on the health of NZ children and adults with ASD.

ASD is often associated with cognitive, language and social deficits. If neglected, or unnoticed, these complications can become worse, causing further difficulties for children as they grow older.

Cure Kids is proud to support Prof Steven Dakin, Head of the School of Optometry and Vision Science at the University of Auckland, who is researching the use of eye-tracking to assist in diagnosing and treating child health disorders, including ASD.

Learn more about Prof Dakin’s research here, and help us raise awareness about the importance of this critical research:
