for Run2Cure Neuroblastoma 2017
Fun Run and Fun Day
Sunday 4th June 2017, 7.30am till 1pm
The Domain, Sydney
Run2Cure Neuroblastoma will be held for the fourth time in the wonderful and iconic location of the Domain in Sydney. The aim of the event is to raise awareness of, and funds for, neuroblastoma childhood cancer research. Neuroblastoma is the leading cause of death of children under 5 from cancer. The event has now raised over $430 000 for Children’s Cancer Institute and Cancer Council NSW for designated neuroblastoma research projects. In 2017 our aim is to raise $150 000 to support the research further. We know with more research being funded, treatments can improve – allowing more children to beat this devastating disease. Our vision as a charity – started by parents affected by neuroblastoma – is to ensure all children have the chance to grow up and lead long and healthy lives, without side effects from their treatments.
In 2017 there is for the first time a school competition : there will be prizes for the top 3 primary schools in the 3k (boys/girls) and also for the top 3 high schools in the 5k (boys/girls). Teams can be any size and the top 3 times will be taken from each team. When you register for 3k or 5k you will be asked to enter your school name and team name.
Thanks again to all our sponsors, many of whom have supported this event for over 4 years. Without their help, Run2Cure would simply not be possible.
10k 7.30 am. 5k 9.00 am. 3k 9.10am. 1k 10.30 am.
Currently aggressive neuroblastoma survival rates are only 50% and this is your opportunity to help us change them through helping us raise funds for research.
Run2Cure comprises of 3 fun runs – a timed 10k, a timed 5k and a timed 3k as well as a 1km fun walk which is for children five and under with their families, grandparents are very welcome of course too!
The 3k, 5k and 10k fun runs start in the Domain and go around Mrs.Macquarie’s Chair providing some stunning views of Sydney Harbour. These runs really have to be among the most scenic runs in Australia and are timed.
The 1k walk is within the Domain and is a walk for children 5 and under with parents and siblings as neuroblastoma is a cancer affecting young children.The 1k walk this year is called The Little Heroes 1k as children are encouraged to dress up as superheroes! This is a walk for children by children.
Run2Cure Neuroblastoma is organised by the registered charity Neuroblastoma Australia to raise much needed funds for Children’s Cancer Institute and Cancer Council NSW for vital research into neuroblastoma.
