My Story

Unfortunately both sides of my family have been impacted by cancer and I want to do what I can to help. Running is how I keep healthy and I've previously run a couple of marathons. The training is intense and I thought I would try to use the effort to raise some funds this time. I've signed up to the Blackmores Sydney Marathon 2017 and have decided to raise funds for Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF). Their work is really important, and I really appreciate any support. You can help by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! You can also support me by encouraging others to get involved, too. Please email the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me. Together we can help Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) create the world we want to see.

About my cause: Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF)

Australian Cancer Research Foundation is a cancer charity that focuses exclusively on giving Australia’s best scientists the technology they need to end cancer.
Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we are funding better ways of detecting, preventing and treating all types of cancer.

ACRF support helps to improve researcher’s understanding of cancer and leads to life-saving breakthroughs. In the past, we have seed-funded important discoveries such as the development of the HPV cancer vaccine.

What makes ACRF unique?
The government and other cancer charities are stretched thin with priorities that demand both their attention and their dollars, which leaves behind a significant gap in funding. ACRF is filling the gap that no other organisation fills.

Each year, ACRF awards competitive grants between $1-10M for major core equipment and infrastructure which is difficult to obtain from other funding sources.

ACRF is passionate about innovation and impact. To ensure we support only the most promising projects, our grants are awarded based on the advice of a panel of leading scientists. Since 1984, ACRF has proudly funded 65 ground-breaking cancer research projects across Australia, totalling $129.2M.

When you support ACRF, you have the power to give the next patient who is diagnosed with cancer a better chance of survival. We are incredibly grateful to our supporters for making cancer research progress possible.
