At STA Travel, we help millions of young travellers explore the world each year, yet for thousands of young people each year their lives are turned upside down by cancer. In New Zealand, 35% of cancer diagnoses in 13-24 year olds happen in the emergency room.
These young people are friends, family and colleagues of the STA Travel community, who require expert treatment and support from the moment they hear the word cancer.
In 2015, STA Travel formed a partnership with CanTeen New Zealand and other charities around the world to help spread awareness and raise vital funds. You can help us by adding just $2 to your booking in-store or over the phone.
CanTeen New Zealand’s mission is to ensure that no 13-24 year old will ever fight cancer alone
One-on-one individual support is provided for young people undertaking cancer treatment in hospital
Around 25 $1,500 CanGrow grants are given each year for young people to get a head start back into life
To support young people living with cancer and help raise funds for research into finding a cure for the disease, our people at STA Travel have already scheduled events throughout the year.
We're also asking our travellers to help. When you book your next adventure in-store or over the phone, simply add just $2 to your booking.
