Family fun for all ages at this year’s Run2Cure in the Domain

What better way to encourage a love of exercise and health in little kids, than with a fun run? Neuroblastoma Australia’s 7th annual Run2Cure will take place on Sunday 2 June in the picturesque surrounds of the Domain and Royal Botanic Gardens.

North Shore Mums is a proud Media Partner of this fun event, which raises money for vital research into the devastating children’s cancer, neuroblastoma – the number one cause of cancer deaths in children under 5 years of age.

Race options… something for all ages and abilities!

Whether you’re a runner, walker, or just enjoy getting out and about with the kids, you’ll find there’s no limit to the fun at this event.

This year Run2Cure will include four race options – timed 10km, 5km and 3km runs and our particular favourite – a 1km Little Heroes event perfect for young children who are encouraged to dress up as superheroes.

Babies and toddlers in strollers are also very welcome.  The event is perfect for a family day out and grandparents often feature prominently in the 1km too. Great prizes are on offer for some of the standout little heroes on the day and every entrant is awarded with a medal, which brings big smiles to little faces.

You can register for the event as individuals, families or a group. Funds raised go directly towards much needed research in this greatly underfunded cancer area.


Entertainment & Attractions for the whole family

The kids will be thoroughly entertained by a Taronga Zoomobile,  rock climbing wall, face painting, arts area, pony rides, jumping castles and Little Kickers soccer zone.

Bouncy slides & fun!

On a huge stage popular performers the Jitterbugs – who are bright and colourful characters taking the form of the bug world – will get the children on their feet. Kiki and Pascal, will ensure everyone has a smile on their face with their fun juggling and acrobatics, while adults and kids alike will enjoy the uplifting sounds of Caribbean band Errol H. Renaud.


Raising important funds for Neuroblastoma

Since 2012, Run2Cure has raised more than $750,000 for research into neuroblastoma – but further funding is needed to continue this research to help improve the lives of, and outcomes for neuroblastoma patients. This year CEO Lucy Jones has ambitious plans to smash through the $1million milestone and with an expectation of more than 6,000 participants, she’s sure to exceed her goal!

Lucy lost her beautiful daughter, Sienna, at only two and a half years of age to neuroblastoma and is exceptionally passionate about the charity she subsequently co-founded. Read her story here.

“We don’t need a miracle to find a cure for neuroblastoma, we just need the help of the community. Though events such as Run2Cure, we can help raise critical funds that will help us move closer to finding a cure and give children with neuroblastoma the chance to live the long and healthy lives that they deserve.”

In addition to spot prizes on the day for dress ups, Neuroblastoma Australia is offering fantastic incentive prizes for fundraising, or getting sponsored ahead of the event. Participants are eligible for these as they reach fundraising milestones.

Everyone is welcome to come along to the Run2Cure! So sign up to take part in this action-packed day.
