Description

Let's Go Quackers!

For as little as $10, you can support a great local charity and help Tasmanians living with melanoma. This annual fundraiser is run by Melanoma Tasmania to aid its important work supporting Tasmanians with melanoma and their families and raising awareness about melanoma in our State.

How does Go Quackers work?

Every duck wins a prize! Bring your family and scoop your ducks from the pool and enjoy our gold-coin donation sausage sizzle. There will be tea, coffee and soft drinks available too. If you can't make it, we'll arrange prize collection in the greater Hobart area after the event. Buy as many tickets as you like! Note: Each ticket corresponds to one duck and there are no sales on the day so be sure to pre-purchase your tickets here.

This year's awesome prizes include:

  • Voucher from Pennicott Wilderness Journeys - 3-hour Wilderness Cruise with either Bruny Island Cruises or Tasman Island Cruises for 2 adults (valued at $270 and valid for 12 months)

  • Voucher for Peppermint Bay Cruise for 2 adults (including lunch)

  • iphone 7 Plus

  • Skin care & sunscreen packs, massage vouchers, movie tickets, car servicing vouchers, family tickets to Hobart Aquatic Centre & Clarence Pool. Passes to Tas Laser Skirmish.

  • Wicked Cheese and Puddleduck Vineyard cheese and wine vouchers; vouchers for restaurants, bakeries, butchers, pizzas & coffees.

  • Wine, beer and cider; and lots of chocolate!

All monies stay in Tasmania to support those living with melanoma and to raise awareness of this common disease.

FAQs

What is melanoma?

Melanoma is a type of cancer that develops from the pigment-containing cells known as melanocytes. Melanomas typically occur in the skin but may rarely occur in the mouth, intestines, or eye. Melanoma can be treated successfully if it is caught early, but if it spreads to other parts of the body (known as metastatic melanoma) the prognosis or outcome is poor. This is why prevention and early detection are so important.

Why is it a problem in Tasmania?

  • there is a 1 in 18 lifetime risk of developing melanoma (breast cancer is 1 in 8)
  • melanoma is the third most common cancer in Tasmanian women and the fourth most common in Tasmanian men (Tasmanian Cancer Registry)
  • in Tasmania, we lose on average 30-50 people a year to melanoma (Tasmanian Cancer Registry)
  • melanoma is projected to become the third most common cancer in Australians by the year 2020, replacing lung cancer (AIHW incidence projections).
  • For more information, please visit Melanoma Tasmania.

Who is Melanoma Tasmania?

Melanoma Tasmania is a registered nof-for-profit run by volunteer committed Tasmanians who are passionate about reducing and preventing the incidence of melanoma in Tasmania.
