Looking for an active activity that you can do as a family? Neuroblastoma Australia’s 8th annual Run2Cure will take place on the weekend of Saturday 5 & Sunday 6 September, in your local neighbourhood! This event raises funds for vital research into the devastating children’s cancer, neuroblastoma – the number one cause of cancer deaths in children under 5 years of age.
Family Fun Run 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 year’s family fun run event.
This event is usually held in The Domain in Sydney, but due to Covid-19 event restrictions, this year you can take part wherever you are in the world, anytime from 5am on Saturday 5 September until 6pm on Sunday 6 September and use the event app to compare your time to other virtual runners and qualify for our wonderful prizes!
Walk, jog or run 1K, 3K, 5K or 10K to raise funds for more effective treatments for the children’s cancer neuroblastoma.
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.
Raising important funds for Neuroblastoma
Lucy Jones is the CEO of Neuroblastoma. She 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.
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 $1 million milestone and with an expectation of more than 6,000 participants, she’s sure to exceed her goal!
“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.
