Volvo Car Australia have provided a fleet of V40 and S60 Volvo vehicles which will be used to teach young drivers the fundamentals of safe driving in the world’s safest cars. This includes the importance and application of many of the active and passive safety features in modern cars, such as stability control and ABS, as well as pedestrian safety and crash avoidance technologies, like Volvo’s City Safety system.

Every year 1,400 cases of malignant brain cancer are diagnosed in Australia and about 1,100 people die from the disease. Second only to Leukemia, brain cancer is the leading form of cancer in children under 15 years of age, accounting for one third of all cancer deaths in young people. The Cure Brain Cancer Foundation was established nine years ago by Dr Charles Teo. Its objective is to help fund advancements in treatments that will hopefully one day lead to a cure. Despite being one of the most fatal cancers, brain cancer is still one of the most under-studied forms of cancer and does not receive a fraction of the public’s attention or funding that it deserves. As is the case with many exceptional causes, without enough funds Cure Brain Cancer hits a roadblock. At Volvo we are delighted to be able to join many other contributors in helping this organisation to keep going. Together with the Volvo Dealer Network and you, our customers, we donate a percentage of all Volvo vehicle sales to Cure Brain Cancer Foundation and we are fast approaching the $1 million benchmark. But of course, to keep Dr Teo and his extraordinary team up and running, we all need to help put 'more in the tank'.
