Neuroblastoma is the leading cause of death of children under 5 from cancer.
Run2Cure has now raised over $515 000 for neuroblastoma research. $346k has been donated to the Children’s Cancer Institute for a new drug development and $161k to Cancer Council NSW for research projects. In 2018 our aim is to raise $200 000 to continue to support Children’s Cancer Institute and the development of a new drug to treat neuroblastoma.
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.
Currently aggressive neuroblastoma survival rates are only 50% and this is your opportunity to help us change this. We know with more research being funded, treatments can improve allowing more children to beat this devastating disease.
Run2Cure Neuroblastoma is organised by the registered charity Neuroblastoma Australia (ABN 74173375414) to raise much needed funds for vital research into neuroblastoma childhood cancer.
Thank you to all our sponsors, many of whom have supported this event for over five years. Without their help, Run2Cure would simply not be possible.
