Significant investment in life-saving cancer research is the only way that these statistics are going to change. 

You can use your passion for swimming to fund cancer research at Mater, going up and down the pool 100 times to help improve outcomes for cancer patients.

Trent Halliday, a long-time UQ Pool regular, lost his battle with melanoma in 2015. In his honour, the Trent Halliday Memorial Trophy will be awarded to the highest 10K Swim fundraiser.

We know you’re up for the challenge, so help us give hope to those affected by cancer.
