Official Steve Waugh Foundation Partner since 2013

World leading image company Canon has partnered with the Foundation to help us raise the profile of rare disease and share the stories of our 'Rare Stars'.

Since 2014, Canon Australia has been the major sponsor of 'Rare Stars Day', an event exclusive for the children we support and their families, giving them the opportunity to meet, share stories and form connections with each other and the people that support them. 

Canon and their staff participate in and raise additional funds as a team and through individual efforts such as ‘Walk to Work Day’, supporting Foundation events and promotions, and workplace giving - generating significant revenue to make a difference to the kids and families we help.

"Our partnership with the Steve Waugh Foundation has been incredibly rewarding for all of us in the Canon team. It's been a privilege to help shine a light on the Rare Stars that are the grant recipients and their families and contribute to a better future for them." Jason McLean, Director Canon Australia
