Funding was scarce for ongoing support from SA Health until the OC Challenge was formed, raising over $105,000 to support a part time clinical psychologist at Royal Adelaide Hospital over a 3 year period. After SA Health recognised the need to fund that salary, OC Challenge appreciated that not all women suffering from ovarian cancer were treated at the RAH and so resolved to take on a wider focus on women diagnosed all over South Australia. Incorporating in late 2013, becoming a registered South Australian charity and receiving eligible deductible donation 'DGR' status with the Australian Tax office http://www.abr.business.gov.au/ABN/View/65810828158

The Advertiser Foundation and their wonderful Patron, Angela Condous AM, has been a great supporter over the years gifting our not for profit charity recipient status at their spectacular luncheons. This has allowed our volunteers to spread awareness at many events and funded our South Australian regional roadshows in Barmera, Lucindale, Paskeville and Cleve where we speak to hundreds of people about the signs and symptoms of ovarian cancer
