A campaign sponsored by Qcity Transit has been launched today by Senator for the ACT Zed Seselja to assist in creating vital awareness of Paediatric Brain Tumour Research and Funding across the wider Canberra and Queanbeyan regions.

Two buses with their bright ‘Dainere’s Rainbow’ themed advertisements will be used to draw attention to the special cause. The campaign will direct people to Dainere’s Rainbow Brain Tumour Research Fund which was created after Dainere Anthoney aged 16 of Gungahlin was diagnosed with a brain tumour on 24 March 2009 and passed away on 24 June 2013.

QCity Transit carries over 6,500 school children daily across our bus network. The buses will operate widely in the region down towards Cooma, up to Yass in the north, and throughout the Canberra and Queanbeyan region with school pickups, drop offs and inter peak charter.

Information about the fund and how you can donate can be found at www.daineresrainbow.com.auFacebook or Twitter.
