We’re back this year to help fight cancer with CommBank

13 June, 2019
Can4Cancer

Hands up who’s keen for us to continue the fight for a tomorrow free from cancer. Yep, we’re back again in 2019, as the exclusive Wellbeing Partner for Commonwealth Bank’s Can4Cancer initiative. 

What is Can4Cancer all about?

Can4Cancer is CommBank’s community initiative with Tour de Cure that raises vital funds for cancer research and support for people with cancer. In 2018, Can4Cancer raised more than $2million across a series of capital city walks and a ride. This year, we’ll be looking to beat that figure, supporting 3,000+ CommBank staff to complete 21km walks across six capital cities. The cycling event will see more than 150 riders travelling 400km+ over a three-day return trip from Sydney.

It’s all happening throughout September and October, so teams have plenty of time to train and prepare!

How is CBHS helping?

As the private health fund for a majority of CommBank Group staff, we share the same cancer-smart values. So, this year CBHS returns as a major sponsor, taking on the role of exclusive Wellbeing Partner to the Can4Cancer events. We hope to have a great turnout of CBHS staff walking and fundraising in the events too!

We’ll be providing all walkers and riders with the exclusive health and wellbeing information they need to get from now to the finish line safely and comfortably. That includes a training plan, nutrition and hydration guidance, tips for happy feet, ways to keep a positive mindset and podcast recommendations and playlists to get through those training walks and the big day itself.

How can you get involved?

One in three cancers are preventable. During the coming months, CBHS will be providing resources to educate and equip our members with the tools to live a cancer-smart lifestyle. All you need to do is look out for these and do your best to plan for long-term healthy change. As we get closer to the action, you’ll also get the opportunity to donate towards the efforts of everyone helping to fund breakthrough cancer research projects.

Of course, if you work for CommBank, we encourage you to join the fun and fundraise and participate in the walk or ride.

Where do the funds go?

  • Cancer research is a long and expensive process. Can4Cancer funds key research projects that will make important breakthroughs in cancer prevention and cures. Tour de Cure has already made 29 important breakthroughs, with more to come!
  • This year, Can4Cancer will help fund 15,000 cancer awareness kids’ packs to enable Tour de Cure to reach and empower even more kids to understand cancer and live a healthy and happy lifestyle.
  • During the cycling tour, the team will present multiple local cancer grants each night to enable research, support or prevention projects in that region.

I joined as a CBHS member in 1978. Through many health events and challenges CBHS has always been there for me and my family. Their exceptional service over this time has always been appreciated.

What Our Members Think

I've not long joined CBHS from another fund, but so far I've been impressed by the super helpful and friendly staff, the higher claim limits and rebates at a very competitive premium, and how easy it is to lodge manual claims through the app. Thanks CBHS - you've won me over! 😃

I have been with CBHS since I began at CBA 15 years ago...Now I have three beautiful children, one who has a disability. Our top extras cover has been really essential for his early intervention. I do love the ease of claiming online.

What Our Members Think

I am relatively new to CBHS and am loving it already. I worked for a CBA subsidiary a long time ago but was still eligible to join. So much better that the for-profit funds - our premium is only a little more and we pay a lower co-contribution and get great benefits. I am loving the massage rebate for my partner and gym rebate for me!

I'm extremely happy with CBHS! I have been a customer for about six years. I think the price is reasonable. And i would refer you to my family and friends any day. Thank you CBHS!!!

Love CBHS as I never have to doubt that they've got my back when I need it. Been through other insurers who have limited options or limits, yet cost the same or more.
