Rangatahi don’t have to face cancer alone.

Around 4,200 rangatahi across Aotearoa are impacted by cancer each year, whether it’s their own diagnosis or cancer in their whānau. Canteen is a safe space for rangatahi to connect, share the tough stuff, and get a break from cancer when they need it.
On Friday 1 September 2023, we asked our supporters across Aotearoa to wear their support and don a bandanna. Our incredible community did not disappoint - with many buying bandannas, selling bandannas, and hosting Bandanna Day events to raise money to help us support rangatahi impacted by cancer.

If you would like to get involved with Bandanna Day next year, please fill in the form below to express your interest, and we will be in touch closer to the time.
