My Story

A few years ago I had planned to run my very first marathon to mark my 40th birthday. However that plan had to be put on hold when my dad was diagnosed with lung cancer. He passed away 9 months later. I know that most, if not all of you, have too been affected by this terrible disease, directly or indirectly. My very first marathon has therefore been many years in the making and in the memory of my dad, I would like to take the opportunity to raise much needed funds for Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF). And I need your help with this. Any amount that you could give would be much appreciated. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me. Peter ps: my mum passed away early this year (not to cancer - thank God) so I would like to dedicate this run to both my parents. I am thankful not just for my legs :) but more importantly for my parents.

About my cause: Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF)

Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) believe that a world without cancer is possible. It is a bold statement but one that we are committed to.

We can’t do this without you. Every day our supporters help to accelerate what can be achieved by giving Australia’s best scientists the technology they need to outsmart through better detection, prevention and treatment.

We are passionate about innovation and impact and believe accelerating cancer research is vital. Thanks to our generous and committed supporters we award grants between $1-10M each year for major equipment and technology. We are the only charity in Australia that does this, many fund the person (the researcher) but no-one else provides the cutting-edge equipment they need.

Together we can outsmart cancers, and we won’t stop until we do.

If you have any questions, call our fundraising team on 1300 884 988 or email Thank you!
