Life Cycle for Canteen OnRoad 2022

Why is Life Cycle Important to CanTeen ?

Why is Life Cycle Important to CanTeen?

“Life Cycle is Canteen’s biggest community fundraiser and over the past 23 years has raised over 2 million dollars for CanTeen! CanTeen is incredibly grateful for the funds and awareness which Life Cycle has raised. These funds raised by Life Cycle have been vital to ensure that we can continue to run our programs and provide a much needed service for young people living with cancer in Australia.

We value Life Cycle because it’s a fantastic community event which brings everyone together to make sure that no young person faces cancer alone.

The funds raised by Life Cycle have provided 20,000 young people with the chance to attend a program where they can meet other young people in the same boat.

Life Cycle also provides the opportunity for a group of members to participate in the first half of the ride each year. This gives the Members a chance to develop their public speaking skills by sharing their personal cancer story with the supporters.

Life Cycle epitomises the best of a community fundraising event and without Life Cycle we wouldn’t be able to support as many young people!

Thank you from all the staff and members at Canteen”

From Jenny @ Lifecycle

What a stunning milestone! You have all been outstanding this year.


I can safely announce that we will donate at least $220,000 to Canteen this year.

What is even more exciting is that this brings our total since 1998 to just over $2,500,000 – that is ¼ million dollars.


2015 – 1 million dollar year

2019 -  2 million dollar year

2022 -  2.5 million dollar year


Congratulations to everyone involved

Remember you can still support LifeCycle

The ride may be done , but you can still support through a donation  

Please see the email received from Ash Rosendale who is the state Coordinator for CanTeen Australia

It was fantastic meeting you all and getting a chance to share a little more about Canteen. It really is a community feel at this event, with the whole team coming together to encourage each other through some hard kms. Of course, there were a few mishaps including some broken wheels and the first use of the ambulance service (thankfully only for use of a bandaid) but you all pushed on and rallied together, we’d expect no less!

Ride was very good and more insight and discussions on CanTeen

Looks like the group will surpass lasts years efforts which is great


It costs $90 per session for youth counsellors to help and guide those who use the services of CanTeen

Last year in WA 1500 sessions were conducted . Effectively the efforts of Lifecyle for CanTeen funds this solely from your efforts with about 20k left over for online seminars .

This is showing true results of Lifecycle

On behalf of our team at Canteen and our young people I’d like to extend a big THANK YOU for all your incredible effort both cycling and through fundraising. 

Collectively you smashed last year's fundraising total of $177,000 and it's still rising! The impact this will have with not only the young people using our services but also their families is immeasurable, and we know they’re as grateful as we are.  


Cheers From David

My 4th year riding to support young people with cancer

Hi there,

I’m riding in the 2022 Life Cycle for Canteen OnRoad event this year to support young people when cancer crashes into their world.

Canteen is the game changer. Canteen supports young people living with cancer, whether it is their own diagnosis, or that of a parent or sibling.They help young people cope with cancer in their family, rebuild their foundations and connect with others in the same boat.

Please help me help them, by giving whatever you can using the 'Donate' button. The more people that know about Canteen, the greater the impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family.

Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means a lot!

Thank you to my Sponsors
