Beanies for Brain Cancer Round

This week's round-six matches will mark the fourth annual Beanie for Brain Cancer campaign. Last year $3.1 million was raised through the sale of beanies at NRL matches, Lowes and IGA stores and online.

While strict biosecurity measures in the COVID-19 world mean there won't be sales at games this year, the foundation made the call to "power on" and sell the 150,000-odd beanies ordered in December.

Beanies can again be purchased at Lowes outlets or selected IGA stores as well as by ordering from the foundation's website, where donations can also be made.

And there are still ways to show your support from home - fans are encouraged to post photos on social media wearing their beanies while watching the footy on TV.

Funds from Beanie for Brain Cancer Round will be used for more innovation grants to top researchers around Australia.

Half a million dollars from the 2019 proceeds were dedicated to a three-year fellowship in brain cancer research for Dr Julius Woongki Kim of the Children's Medical Research Institute.
