Ed Dubois has a very personal interest in supporting the work of charities dedicated to research into childhood cancer.  In the past. Dubois Cup has been a platform for fund-raising and creating greater awareness of this.  The first two events supported CLIC Sargent and Sparks respectively and have cumulatively raised in excess of €200,000.

In 2011, the regatta aimed to raise awareness of the newly launched Dubois Child Cancer Fund, which had been created to raise a significant sum for the ongoing research into childhood cancers, with a very specific aim of increasing survival rates for the rarer types of childhood cancer such as Neuroblastoma.  In the same way that survival rates for childhood Leukaemia have increased dramatically over the last twenty years, Ed Dubois is committed to making this happen in other areas, by funding specific research programmes, peer-reviewed by specialists in this field.

A fund was created at the well-established medical research charity SPARKS.  All funds raised go directly to this registered charity for specific projects in the area of childhood cancer research agreed by Ed and Honor Dubois.
