The Power of One
November 1st - 7th
Join us in 2023 and let see what the Power of One can do!
About the Power of One
The Power of One campaign aims to raise general awareness about the role of clinical trials
in advancing medical science and healthcare.
Why is this important?
With awareness comes access to information, knowledge and choices that have the potential to benefit people’s health.
The Power of One is asking you to donate one dollar as a symbol of recognition that everything starts with one: one researcher, one person participating in a trial, one new discovery can lead to new treatments that have the potential to benefit anyone of us.
The Power of One is a metaphor for demonstrating that one can make a difference.
One disease can change lives but so can one new discovery
Where do the funds go?
People donating have a say about where their contribution could go. Research areas for this year are outlined on the donation portal each year. Part of the funds will also go towards supporting the ongoing work and awareness initiatives of the foundation.
Research options for 2020 included COVID, Indigenous Health & Mental Health. In 2021 research options were – Mental Health, Rare Cancers or Neurology.
