Frequently asked questions about Dry July

How does Dry July work?

Dry July is one of the most recognisable fundraising campaigns in Australia. The rules are pretty simple:

  1. Sign up as a team or individual
  2. Raise funds for cancer patients
  3. Stop drinking during July

If there is a special occasion in July that you need to attend, you can always buy a Golden Ticket. For the cost of $25, you’ll get a night off, allowing you to enjoy yourself while still making a difference.

How does raising funds for Dry July help people affected by cancer?

When you raise funds for people affected by cancer, you are contributing to supporting invaluable services for cancer patients. These supports include:

  1. Transport to life-saving appointments
  2. Guidance from specialist nurses
  3. Connection to better information sources
  4. Access to new therapy programs
  5. Beds closer to treatment

All funds raised by Dry July go towards Australians affected by cancer. With your help during this Dry July challenge, we can face cancer together.
