My Story

Oh man. My first marathon. My only marathon. I only plan on doing this once. And I'm doing it for friends and family lost to cancer. I need all the motivation I can get. So I'm looking for people to help motivate me when I'm out there on the course. My target is to raise $50 per kilometre of my marathon for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF). ACRF is all about giving great scientists the support they need to keep on finding breakthroughs in cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment. I know so many people affected by cancer. I'm sure you do too. Great research is our only hope to tell cancer it's time to piss off for good. So please donate! Even if you can't afford to give money, you can support me by encouraging others to get involved, too. Please share my fundraising page further to help me reach my goal. A little from a lot of colleagues, friends and family can help me to hit my big target and help the Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) push us closer toward serious solutions to cancer. Thanks so much.

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.
