About Neuroblastoma Australia
Neuroblastoma Australia Incorporated is a registered charity which was set up by two families affected by neuroblastoma in 2010. The organisation was inspired by Sienna Hoffmann who lost her battle to neuroblastoma when she was just two and a half years old and the frangipani logo is dedicated to Sienna who loved these beautiful flowers.
The objectives of Neuroblastoma Australia are to raise awareness of neuroblastoma childhood cancer and to raise much needed funds for research into neuroblastoma. The organisation is also focused on creating networks and providing information about the disease to families affected by neuroblastoma.
A number of events have been held to this purpose including the Run2Cure, the Balmain Fun Day and Sienna’s Frangipani Gala Dinners. Run2Cure has cumulatively raised over $520,00. $346,718 has gone to Children’s Cancer Institute, $161,591 to Cancer Council NSW and $13,655 to Children’s Cancer project.
The Neuroblastoma Run2Cure fun runs were held for the first time in 2013 in Sydney Park and due to its success, the event has moved location to The Domain near Sydney’s CBD. Many thanks to the Royal Botanical Gardens and Domain Trust for their support.
