OUR CREATOR'S STORY
A visionary leader committed to affecting real change that transforms our world, Helmut Uhlmann combined his passion for music and social enterprise to create Busk for a Cure.
Helmut started Busk for a Cure in 2014 in honour of his mother, who he lost to endometrial cancer one year later. Helmut supported his mum as she battled with different cancers over 10 years and felt compelled to contribute to ending the pain and devastation caused to sufferers and their loved ones.
For the past five years Busk for a Cure has raised over $13,000 for the Cancer Council and Crohn’s and Colitis Australia, which was chosen as a second charity to help raise the profile of this debilitating and lesser known illness. From 2019 Busk for a Cure will be expanding its reach to raise funds for other important causes in conjunction with Cancer.
WHAT IS BUSK FOR A CURE?
Busk for a Cure is an independent music initiative, created in 2014. We support great causes, in the past raising almost $13,000 for Cancer Council NSW and Crohn's & Colitis Australia. We are one of the first festivals of it’s kind to give 100% of all donations straight to charity.
