Did you know?
Neuroblastoma is the number one cause of cancer deaths of children under five.
Neuroblastoma is a solid tumour childhood cancer with the average age of diagnosis being just two years old. It claims more lives of children under the age of five than any other cancer and Run2Cure raises vital funds for research into better treatments for this devastating childhood disease.
To date progress in improving survival rates for neuroblastoma has been relatively slow due to the lack of funding. This is your opportunity to help us boost research and improve survival rates of this aggressive childhood cancer.
You can make a difference.
