DP World Australia dry July campaignJoin the DP World Australia Dry July team

We're getting involved with the Dry July campaign this year and would love your involvement.

The campaign raises money for adults living with cancer. It's a fun and practical way to live by our Compass. By caring more about people affected by cancer — and their families — we can make their lives a little easier.

To add some friendly competition to the campaign, we're participating in four state-based teams. As an incentive, DP World Australia will match the funds raised by the winning person from each State.

We will also award prizes to State stage leaders and overall State winners throughout the campaign. 


What's it all about?

Dry July is a fundraiser that challenges you to go alcohol-free for a month to support adults living with cancer. It allows participants to:

  • Place more value on a healthy, balanced lifestyle
  • Take a light-hearted approach to raising funds on a serious issue
