About Build for a Cure

To mark International Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in 2017, Children’s Cancer Institute, McDonald Jones Homes and Walker Corporation have joined forces to undertake an extraordinary challenge - building a house in just 28 days. 

This will be the third Build for a Cure project, with homes built and sold in Glenworth Park (2014) and Teralba, Lake Macquarie (2016).  

This fully-furnished, luxury four bedroom home is donated, including the selfless volunteers who donate their time and skill to build it. “The House Built with Love” will then be auctioned off, with all proceeds from the sale going directly to Children’s Cancer Institute’s vital research.  Works will begin on Monday 21 August 2017 in the picturesque and historic town of Appin, in Greater Western Sydney.

Check out our time-lapse camera below to see the site hard at work. 

The home will be located in Walker’s newest community, Appin Place and the Appin community have been hugely enthusiastic about coming together to support Build for a Cure, including families touched by childhood cancer. There will be huge family fun days on both Reveal Day and Auction Day.  

Reveal day: 17 September

Will include an appearance of Scott Cam 

Auction Day: 22 October

Will include The Block auctioneer Damien Cooley. 

Together we will cure childhood cancer. It’s not if, it’s when.
