My Story

Ladies and gentlemen, I am humbled by your generosity and support. You are all amazing and wonderful people. Thank you all for your support! Thanks to all the people who generously donated so far I am able to raise the amount that I am trying to raise from $600 to $900. To my friends and associates that have thought about donating but have not hit that button yet, go on do it... this is a good cause and a good way to earn your karma debt. You may not know this but I lost both of my parents to cancer, my father earlier this year. I am raising money for cancer research as per the prepared statement below... And as my anonymous friend said... "I will run like a fat kid chasing dreams of cupcakes" ha ha ha I do like to run and this is my first marathon. I am aiming for 4 hours 30 min.... let's see how I do!!!! I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2017 to raise much needed funds for Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF). Their work is really important, and I want to do what I can to help. But there is only so much I can do on my own. You can help too, 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.
