Dig Deep Day: Round 20 – Sunday, August 5

On Sunday, August 5 we’re going in to battle for two great causes – to beat the Dockers and raise money for our 14th Dig Deep campaign!

Over the past 13 years the West Coast Eagles has raised more than $1.4 million dollars for Cancer Council WA, who support the 12,000 Western Australians diagnosed with cancer each year.

Influential Eagles Luke Shuey and Andrew Gaff have encouraged West Coast fans to get behind the Dig Deep campaign since they became Cancer Council WA ambassadors in 2015 and they will again call on our much-loved blue and gold army to support and contribute to another successful fundraising campaign.

Game Day

Dig Deep on Derby Day!

This year’s Dig Deep day not only offers you a chance to make a difference and strive for a cancer-free future, but thanks to proud partner Caltex, if you buy your $5 Dig Deep flag on game day you will go in two competitions:

  • Fly your flag at quarter-time for your chance win $500 star cash
  • Fly your flag at half-time for your chance to win fuel for a year*

*Terms and conditions apply.

The $5 Dig Deep flags will be available from Cancer Council volunteers, who will be stationed around the stadium and in the Rebel Sport outlets within the stadium.

To help us reach our $100,000 annual fundraising goal, we are selling limited edition $5 mini footballs at the below outlets until Friday, August 3 (any unsold mini footballs will also be available on game day, August 5):

  • Participating Caltex stores
  • West Coast Eagles Team Store and Reception
  • Cancer Council WA Shop - 334 Rokeby Rd, Subiaco

Get your mini football or game day flag and HELP CREATE A CANCER-FREE FUTURE.

All proceeds support Cancer Council WA.

Due to the generosity of our loyal supporters, we have reached our annual goal of raising $100,000 each year of the campaign. This is a significant contribution to Cancer Council WA, who support the 12,000 Western Australians diagnosed with cancer each year.

Join us once again in the fight against cancer, one of the nation’s most widespread diseases that touches so many Western Australians every year.

Cancer Council Ambassador

Luke Shuey and Andrew Gaff have been the Cancer Council Western Australia ambassadors since 2015.

What are we funding?

One in two Australians are diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime - together with Cancer Council WA, we are united to change that. Cancer research is what will help find new ways to beat cancer more effectively, understand how cancer develops, diagnose cancer earlier and improve the quality of life for people living with cancer. That is why each year the funds from the Dig Deep campaign are directed to Cancer Council WA's research program, allowing WA researchers to discover new ways to beat cancer. The money raised from our fans and members goes towards a range of cancer projects and scholarships. The funds raised from the 2016 Dig Deep campaign fully funded the Professor Daniel Galvao project, a survivorship program improving health outcomes after cancer through exercise, and partially funded Dr Carolyn McIntyre’s research into exercise as medicine in the management of mesothelioma. Professor Galvao’s research aims to investigate how exercise can be used in cancer management to improve patient’s outcomes. This research will develop ready-to-implement population-based and translatable physical activity strategies aimed at improving outcomes for cancer patients. Dr McIntyre's research is based at ECU’s Exercise Medicine Research Institute and aims to improve outcomes in patients with mesothelioma through the use of exercise during treatment. Patients with mesothelioma often suffer with muscle loss, tiredness, poor quality of life and are often unable to do daily tasks. Exercise has been shown to be very effective in improving the health of patients with lung and other cancers, but this is the first piece of work to examine the role of exercise in improving the care of patients with mesothelioma.
