My Story

I am running the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival Half-Marathon 2017 (for the very first time!) to raise much needed funds for Cancer Council NSW. I'm sure we all have friends and family who in one way or another have been affected by this horrible disease. For me, it was as recently as a few months ago. The work that the Cancer Council does is amazing, and this is one way that I can help them find a cure. You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! Thank you for your generosity and support -- both myself and Cancer Council NSW appreciate it greatly!

About my cause: Cancer Council NSW

Our Mission

To lead, empower and mobilise the community to beat cancer.We believe that we can and will beat cancer. 

Every year in NSW alone, more than 46,000 new cases of cancer are expected to be diagnosed, and the impact on families, carers and communities is significant.

Together with our volunteers, supporters, stakeholders and staff, we are committed to reducing the impact of cancer on individuals and the community, and to lessening the burden for people affected by cancer.

We are the only organisation that works across every area of every cancer:

- conducting and funding world-class research that underpins our work across the cancer journey
- preventing cancer
- supporting people as they navigate the cancer journey
- advocating to ensure that governments take action on cancer.

We are there not only for those touched by cancer today, but to prevent and manage cancer for future generations.

We are a member of Cancer Council Australia, together with Cancer Councils from every state and territory across Australia. Cancer Council NSW is an independent charity and is 96% community funded. Our unique combination of local program delivery, community engagement and national influence enables everyone who cares about cancer to make the biggest possible difference.
