Thank you to everyone for making Run2Cure 2017 such a great success
Join us on Sunday 3 June for Run2Cure 2018!
Run2Cure Neuroblastoma was held for the fourth time in the wonderful and iconic location of the Domain in Sydney on Sunday 4th June. 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. In 2017, Run2Cure raised $170,000 and 80% of this amount will go to neuroblastoma research projects including projects at Children’s Cancer Institute and Cancer Council NSW.
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.
We’re delighted that in 2017, Rio Olympic Gold Medal pentathlete, Chloe Esposito, was our Run2Cure Superstar. Thanks also to all our sponsors, many of whom have supported this event for over 4 years. Without their help, Run2Cure would simply not be possible.
