The Scott Canner Young Investigators Grant (SCYIG)
On 8 August 2011, Robbie Canner lost her only son Scotty to Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. He was just 22 years old. Scotty was a Qantas cadet pilot, a junior Australian outrigger canoe champion and a much-loved member of the TDC family. Proud mum, and a cancer survivor herself, Robbie set up the Scott Canner Investigator Grant to ensure Scott’s legacy and to help find a cure for this terrible disease.

Bully Zero is Australia's leading bullying prevention charity.
At Bully Zero, we believe that everyone in Australia should feel safe, valued
In 2009, prior to forming Bully Zero, Ali Halkic’s son Allem tragically fell victim
to cyber bullying and tragically took his own life.
Following the tragic loss of his beautiful son, Ali and a small group of dedicated
parents who had also experienced their own tragic loss, worked tirelessly to set
up the new organisation with the belief that no parent should have to bury a
child as a consequence of such insidious behaviour.
Bully Zero was officially launched in March 2013 by the Prime Minister,
the Hon. Julia Gillard AC.
Bully Zero's mission is simple - to prevent and reduce bullying through
evidence-based education, advocacy, and support for all communities across Australia.
"Bullying isn't a problem that makes headlines every day, but every day it touches the lives of people across Australia. No parent should have to bury a child as a consequence of such insidious behaviour."
