What is the Great Cop Drop?

NSW Police men and women joined forces for the inaugural event in 2018 and raised more than $45,000 for Children's Cancer Institute by taking to the sky. In 2019 Police men and woman will again come together. Teams will take to the skies to skydive with one mission in mind - to help cure childhood cancer.



Every year 950 Australian children and adolescents will be diagnosed with cancer. Every week nearly three Australian children and adolescents will die of cancer. Children's Cancer Institute exists solely to put an end to childhood cancer through research. We don’t just hope to do it. We will do it - with supporters like you raising vital funds to support our researh.

Great Cop Drop! is a fundraising concept of Darrin Batchelor, Senior Detective of NSW Police Force and father of Isla, who was just four years old when first diagnosed with T-cell acute lymphoblastic leukaemia: a particularly aggressive form of leukaemia.

Darrin and his wife Sarah have been amazing supporters of Children’s Cancer Institute and have been one of the institutes ambassador families, fundraising and helping spread the message about the importance of research to cure childhood cancer
