Make a difference this Red Nose Day

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.

Congratulations to our incredible ambassador Lucian on celebrating four years in remission. His inspiring mum Nikki says, "7yrs ago my life was turned into a hell joy ride. The leukaemia cancer train set to test me and Lucian.

Times of gut wrenching news, brave faces put on, rivers of tears, friends sadly passing, months in hospital. Life has changed, the world is not the same, but i still have my boy. Life lessons are never easy.

We fought and we won. Now four years in remission."

Approximately 150 children are diagnosed with a form of cancer every year. While medical advances have greatly improved the outcomes of many, there remain aggressive forms out there which are life-threatening, where even the best treatment options can impact adversely on a child's health.

Cure Kids is supporting childhood cancer specialist, Dr Andrew Wood, who is investigating methods of treating childhood cancer more gently and with less long-term adverse effects.
