Neuroblastoma claims more lives of children under the age of five than any other cancer. We need to improve treatments so they are more effective and less toxic and the way to do this is through research.

Our Goals

Currently, children come second in the world of cancer research – the children affected by neuroblastoma are on average just two years old. They are too little to represent themselves.

One in two children diagnosed with aggressive neuroblastoma will not survive.

We need to change this and we need your help.

When you register for the run you will be able to set up your own fundraising page(provided you are over 18 years of age) which you can then share with your friends and contacts, via facebook, twitter or by email.

Since 2014, the Neuroblastoma Run2Cure events have collectively raised over $1 million for research into better, kinder and more effective treatments for this devastating children's cancer.

We have funded projects from leading research institutions such as The Children’s Cancer Institute, Cancer Council NSW, The Kids Cancer Centre and Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.

Visit our current projects or past projects pages on our website to discover how your generosity is helping to bring us closer to a cure.

How Your Fundraising Helps

Why fund research?

Every single dollar raised will make a significant difference.

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 much money raised by Run2Cure Local will go towards research?

Our aim is for approximately 80% of the funds raised through Run2Cure Local to go towards research projects into kinder, better and more effective treatments for the children's cancer neuroblastoma.

The remaining funds go towards running the virtual event and the charity Neuroblastoma Australia. Our annual report is available here if you'd like more information about where funding goes.
