Clown Doctors – The Humour Foundation

As a founding partner, CommBank has been proudly supporting the Clown Doctors since 1999.

The Humour Foundation provides the Clown Doctors program at no cost to 23 hospitals across Australia and one children’s palliative care facility.

Clown Doctors are medical clowns – highly trained, professional performers who spread ‘doses’ of fun and laughter throughout hospitals, working to uplift thousands of sick kids.

By parodying the hospital routine with jokes, songs, music and play, Clown Doctors engage kids at their bedside - helping them to adapt to hospital life. They work in partnership with medical professionals to divert children during painful procedures, calm and distract in emergency, encourage and assist during occupational therapy and physiotherapy and improve the quality of life of some of the most vulnerable members of our community; sick and injured kids.

Tour de Cure

Tour de Cure

In partnership with Tour de Cure, Can4Cancer began as a 3-day ride for 100 employees in Sydney back in 2014. 

The event has grown each year since, and in 2019, more than 4,000 employees participated in walks or rides across the country. So far, more than $9m has been raised to help fund game-changing cancer research, support and prevention projects.

Check out the highlights from the 2019 event here
