An event where the most incredible people from the Gungahlin Community and beyond came together in an afternoon of fitness, courage and inspiration to honour the little Superhero Jett and to elevate awareness and raise funds for childhood brain tumours.
A Message From Jett’s Family
“A massive thank you to everyone who came down to Orange Theory Fitness Gungahin last Saturday to support Jett Day. A super special thanks to everyone (individuals and businesses) who supported our efforts by donating money and prizes, buying raffle tickets, making cupcakes and taking part in the challenges.
Your support means so much to us and it helped to make Jett Day a massive success. With the wonderful support of people like you we were able to raise over $13,000 for the Dainere’s Rainbow Brain Tumour Research Fund. With 100% of all funds raised or donated going to paediatric brain tumour research at Sydney Children’s Hospital, we hope that one day a cure will become a reality so that Jett and other children do not have to suffer through this terrible disease.
An extra special thanks to the Orange Theory Fitness crew for organising and hosting this amazing day and to the Anthoney Family for their support and the wonderful work that they do to make a difference and create change for all children diagnosed with a paediatric brain tumour.”

About Jett Day
What an absolute honour, totally humbling and a little overwhelming experience it was on Saturday 24th August to spend time with the extraordinary Orange Theory Fitness Gungahlin Team for Jett Day.
Jett is a truly amazing little Superhero, who was diagnosed in January 2019 with a JPA brain tumour at the age of just four. He has endured so much and so have his extremely remarkable family. There is still a long path for this beautiful family to travel and our thoughts and support are continually with them. Know that you are not alone we are all there for you and fighting with you.
The OTF Gungahlin Team, put together an afternoon of fitness challenges, children’s activities, raffles and more to brighten Jett’s Day and to make a difference. They even put their bodies on the line in a massive challenge themselves (a small insight to the pain and discomfort a child diagnosed with a brain tumour endures) they pledged to do a burpee for every dollar raised. With the help of OTF Members and Jarrett together they did almost 12,000 burpees!
Such gratitude, beyond words really to all the phenomenal individuals and businesses involved in the event, they not only have the light of human kindness burning ever so brightly but they can be called true champions.
Every single dollar raised from this event will go towards world class and innovative research to improve outcomes, discover new treatment options, bring hope and create change for Jett and every single child diagnosed with what is a totally insidious, cruel and indiscriminate disease.
It is through the research programs and projects headed by the incredible, passionate and devoted Associate Professor Ziegler and his team at the Sydney Children’s Hospital set up in memory of and as a legacy to Dainere that change can occur and children diagnosed with brain tumours can have the future they deserve.
