Tangalooma Island Resort Set to Host the Superheroes of The Kids’ Cancer Project on Their 10,000Km Journey to Raise Awareness

August 11, 2017 Responsible Tourism No Comments Email Email

Tangalooma Island Resort’s whale watching cruise was taken over by some of Australia’s unknown superheros as the Kids’ Cancer Project team on Tuesday as the team made their way down the Eastern Coastline to raise awareness for the cause.

The Kid’s Cancer Project Founder, Col Reynolds is driving his brightly coloured bus nearly 10,000kms starting in his hometown of Townsville and stopping in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania and the ACT before arriving in Sydney on 1 September.

Cancer kills more children than any other disease in Australia which is why Col felt compelled to take to the road in what has been named ‘The Science Project’, with the mission to tell all Australians that kids with cancer need science.

The partnership between Tangalooma Island Resort and The Kids’ Cancer Project was driven by Resort Manager, Brianna Preobrajensky and her own personal experience with her son Oscar’s battle with cancer.

Oscar’s battle with cancer a few years ago inspired Brianna to initiate the partnership, which for the second year running sees $5 donated to The Kids’ Cancer Project for every whale sighted from the Tangalooma Jet.

“Tangalooma Island Resort has been a proud supporter of The Kids’ Cancer Project for many years now, and given our first-hand experience with the organisation and the incredible work they do, this is one partnership we endeavour to maintain for years to come,” said Brianna Preobrajensky.

The Kid’s Cancer Project tour bus joined by some of the amazing patients and families supported by the funding stopped off at Tangalooma Island Resort on Tuesday (the sixth stop on the tour) with the whale watching cruise renamed ‘The Tangalooma Whale Watch, brought to you by The Kids Cancer Project’ to help raise more awareness for the cause.

“We want to recognise the tremendous work The Kids Cancer Project do, and help raise awareness and funds for childhood cancer research. Col will be the honouree skipper for the day and our Eco-Ranger reports will be coming from some of the families and kids” said Brianna Preobrajensky.
