My Story

My mum, Beth, passed away in October 2017 after a three year battle with cancer. It is her birthday on the 16th of September (this coming Sunday) the same day as the Sydney Running Festival is being held. If she were still alive she would be turning 64. I have decided it would be a nice way to honour and remember her by running in the half marathon and raising money for cancer research. Unfortunately I havn't quite been able to get myself up for the full marathon (42km) so will only be running the half (21km)... but please don't halve your donation!! Cure Cancer Australia is dedicated to funding crucial cancer research from Australia’s brightest emerging minds. You can check them out here: www.curecancer.com.au I have selected them as they have a progressive approach to cancer research, with the majority of their funding going, in the form of grants, to young or early-career researchers. They focus on tackling cancer from fresh perspectives and don't allow older, more traditional ideas about cancer research to get in the way of innovation. Any amount you can give will make a difference to this impressive organisation. I am sick of cancer. Let's do our best to end this horrible disease! Thanks!

About my cause: Cure Cancer Australia

Cure Cancer Australia is dedicated to funding crucial cancer research from Australia’s brightest emerging minds. We believe early-career researchers who offer new ideas and challenging perspectives are the key to advancing the fight against ALL types of cancer.
The funding landscape for early-career researchers is extremely competitive. Cure Cancer Australia provides the vital early-career funding that our emerging research innovators so desperately need. Without investment in their potentially life-saving research, there won't be a future pipeline for Australian cancer research.
To date, Cure Cancer Australia has invested close to $30 million to support more than 300 scientists and provide close to 500 research grants. Many of our alumni are now amongst the leaders in cancer research both in Australia and around the world.
We won't cure cancer without research and we cannot cure cancer without you. Help us to make this the last generation to die from cancer.
