Get fit, have fun and support a great cause
Run2Cure Neuroblastoma will be held for the fifth time in Sydney’s iconic Domain on Sunday 3rd June 2018. 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 $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.
We’re delighted that Rio Olympic Gold Medal pentathlete, Chloe Esposito, will again be our Run2Cure Superstar.
Thanks also to all our sponsors, many of whom have supported this event for over five years. Without their help, Run2Cure would simply not be possible.
If your organisation would like to partner with us, we still have opportunities available. Visit our 2018 corporate sponsorship information pack for more details.
