Join Frocktober 2023
Join Australia's most fashionable month-long fundraiser to raise awareness and funds for ovarian cancer research.
With over 1,000 lives cut short by ovarian cancer each year we are calling on 1,000 Frockers to be part of this year's event and raise much-needed funds to help save more lives from this disease.
Every dollar raised by Frocktober participants ("Frockers") will help to fund life-saving ovarian cancer research and change the future for Aussie women and girls.
Everyone is welcome to join Frocktober - your gender and identity shouldn't be a barrier. Whether you're frocking up from home, hosting an event, wearing your loudest outfit to the office or challenging yourself to wear 31 dresses in 31 days, you can make it your own.
Why should I ‘Frock Up’?
Frocktober empowers people of all backgrounds, lifestyles and fabulous fashion sense to support a common cause: ovarian cancer research.
Ovarian cancer is Australia's most lethal gynaecological cancer, taking more than 1,000 lives each year.
Currently, one Australian dies every eight hours from ovarian cancer. Most diagnoses are made in the advanced stages because there is no early detection test.
Frocktober raises vital funds for the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation (OCRF) to ensure that promising ovarian cancer research projects from around Australia and New Zealand can receive funding.
The OCRF rely on support from our Frocker community to keep growing the number of projects we can fund, and the duration we can fund them for.
Whether you’re frocking in the workplace, hosting an event or frocking your own way, your contribution is vitally important.
