The Cooper Rice-Brading Foundation Sports Auction

In memory of Celso Munoz

Funding a cure for Sarcoma

Afternoon Sport are proud to be supporting the Cooper Rice-Brading Foundation.

At age 17, Cooper Rice-Brading’s vision was to change the current trajectory for young sarcoma patients. The aim of CRBF is to fund clinical research to find a cure for sarcoma, while raising awareness of sarcoma in the greater community in an effort to promote early diagnosis, and to provide support for sarcoma patients and their families.

Through CRBF, Cooper’s legacy lives on, and he continues to impact lives through the steps he initiated throughout his gruelling treatment regime. CRBF not only contributes funds to high level clinical research dedicated to finding a cure for sarcoma, but also provides patient support, aiming to assist the patients and families living with this insidious disease. At the time of writing, CRBF has directed almost $1 million for sarcoma research and patient support in Australia since its inception in 2018.
