My Story

This year I’m challenging myself to run, something that I’m not particularly good at, nor really liked when I started out. And thats why I’ve chosen to run for Cancer Council NSW by doing a 10km run as part of Blackmores Sydney running festival. 10km is something I couldn’t imagine doing about a year ago, but sometimes running for a cause is all you need to keep you motivated. A few years ago, Mikey (my partner) lost his Uncle to throat cancer, he was a larger than life, amazing man, who is greatly missed by all his family. Not long after my Uncle was also diagnosed with Cancer, he was one of the lucky ones and survived.  So, with this in mind, I want to help raise much needed funds for Cancer Council NSW. Their work is really important, and I want to do what I can to help, and with your support I can hopefully do this, any amount you can give will help make a massive difference. Lets kick cancers butt as they say! Much love, and than you everyone for your generosity and support - it means so much to me.  Lizzie x

About my cause: Cancer Council NSW

Our Mission

We are Australia’s leading cancer charity, uniting the community, providing support, investing in research and saving lives.

Every year in NSW alone, more than 48,000 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 95% 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.
