We Support Jane’s Walk for a Cure

In 2018 Judy’s mother passed away from pancreatic cancer.  This hit their family hard and as a result Judy decided to help out where she can.  Janes Walk for a Cure is a not for profit organisation that raises funds for all types of cancer and donates to The  Cure Cancer Australia Foundation.  For every DiSC and Genos Report that Zenith HR sells, we will be donating $5 to this exceptional cause.

Janes Walk for a Cure

Jane’s Walk for a Cure was founded in 2012 by Jane Broadhead to raise much needed funds for The Cure Cancer Australia Foundation.

When Jane was a young girl she lost her grandpa to bowel cancer. Over the years, she has also had some friends and other family members affected by cancer, with some sadly losing their battle.

It was then that Jane decided that she wanted to do something that would help make a difference, to help rid the world of cancer, and that is how Jane’s Walk for a Cure came to be.

Since inception, Jane and the team have raised over $125,000 by taking part in numerous personal challenges around the world and holding several fundraising events.
