About Pirate Day Friday

Pirate Day Friday is an annual national event created to generate awareness and much needed funds for children’s brain cancer. All funds raised are allocated to research projects across Australia through The Adventurers and The Kids’ Cancer Project.

Pirate Day Friday was a concept conceived in tragic circumstances when, in 2014, Nathan Coglan of Perth, learned his son, Conor (then aged 5), had an aggressive brain tumour.

Did you know:

  • More than 100 children aged 0-14 die from cancer in Australia each year.
  • One in 4 of these deaths is a child with brain cancer.
