Fundraising

Please help us to raise funds for Neuroblastoma research by setting up a fundraising page. Your first chance to do this is when you register for the event. However if you have already registered for the event, you can still set up your fundraising page here. To make it quick and easy we suggest you set up a fundraising page under an adults entry. This will avoid the need to sign a consent form which is required when setting up a fundraising page based on a child entrant.

Prizes

We are giving away many fundraising prizes as we are grateful for all the effort that goes into raising funds for neuroblastoma research. The top fundraising team will win a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 valued at $300. This winner will be based on the top Every Day Hero team page and closing time will be 2 pm on Sunday 4th June. In addition, the top individual fundraiser will win a Valentino watch valued at $300 and the second top individual will win a Valentino watch valued at $125. These winners will be based on the Every Day Hero individual pages and closing time will be 2pm on Sunday 4th June. Also if you set up your Every Day Hero page and raise $1 you will qualify to receive a Reef sun cream worth $10 (limited to the first 500 participants). For details on all the prizes see here.

Our Goals

Currently children come second in the world of cancer research – the children affected by neuroblastoma are on average just 2 years old. They are too little to represent themselves and one in two children diagnosed with aggressive neuroblastoma will not survive.
We need to change this and we need you to help us raise funds through getting sponsored for the Neuroblastoma Run2Cure.  When you register for the run you will be able to set up your own fundraising page on Every Day Hero (provided you are over 18 years of age) which you can then share with your friends and contacts.

In 2014, 2015 and 2016 the Neuroblastoma Run2Cure raised a collective $430,000 for our charity partners which included Children’s Cancer Institute Australia, Cancer Council NSW and Kids Cancer Project (2016). In 2017 we hope to increase this and raise over $150,000 for research – funds in 2017 will go to Children’s Cancer Institute , Cancer Council NSW and Neuroblastoma Australia.

80% of profits from the event will be invested in neuroblastoma research projects. Funds which go to Children’s Cancer Institute will continue to go to support a very promising drug called CBL1037 which is looking effective in treating aggressive neuroblastoma in pre-clinical trials – please watch  http://www.sbs.com.au/news/article/2015/11/05/experimental-drug-giving-hope-kids-cancer?mc_cid=b7e1da2827&mc_eid=c9c2205319

Other research funds will go towards setting up a scholarship between Cancer Council NSW and Neuroblastoma Australia to support a research project for aggressive neuroblastoma. This will be to ensure the very best research students in the country are involved in helping us research and ultimately beat neuroblastoma.

How Your Fundraising Helps

Every single dollar raised will make a significant difference by helping to fund our life saving research. 90% of the proceeds raised from the event will go DIRECTLY into neuroblastoma research conducted by Children’s Cancer Institute and Cancer Council NSW.

Examples of the difference your funds will make:

$50
will support the cost of the chemicals, staffing and equipment needed to screen 25 drug compounds which could potentially save a child with neuroblastoma and improve their quality of life.

$500
Will provide six months’ supply of antibody to detect abnormal proteins in tumours so we can find out more about what causes neuroblastoma.

$1,742
Will help pay for the advanced technology required to examine one neuroblastoma sample. This will give us more information about the disease that we can use to design a treatment.

$8,000
will fund an innovative drug trial for one child with neuroblastoma and potentially save their life. Trials are essential to boost survival rates.

How will the funds from the 2017 Neuroblastoma Run2Cure Fun Runs and Fun Day be used by our Charity Partners to improve treatment for neuroblastoma?

Children’s Cancer Institute:

The funds raised in Run2Cure have primarily gone to Children’s Cancer Institute to support the pre-clinical research of a very promising drug called CBL1037.

Cancer Council NSW:

Other funds have been donated to Cancer Council and the funds went to a research project into neuroblastoma at UNSW – this project was successful and is now being sponsored by the Government.
