My Story

I am taking part in this because one of my best friends lost her sister and best friend to cancer. The amazing Melissa left this earth 11 months ago leaving behind a huge whole in the hearts of those left behind. I am doing this race thingy to raise awareness for the Love Your Sister and the great work they do. 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 Love Your Sister create the world we want to see.

About my team: Remembering Melissa

Thank you for making my day Nomes x Update 2: Thank you lovely people for your generosity! We have quickly hit $1500 in donations so I wonder if we can make it to $2k? I think Lis would be so impressed with our effort so far! Team Remembering Melissa is heading to Sydney on Saturday! Nomes xx Update: Thank you to all of our very generous donators! We are so very touched! We reached our $1k goal so we have decided to push ourselves a little harder and see if we can raise $1500. Nomes xx On the 29th July 2018, exactly one year and one day after Melissa passed away from breast cancer team "Remembering Melissa" is raising much needed funds for Love Your Sister by participating in the Sydney Harbour 10k & 5k. To celebrate her life and to raise money for the Love Your Sister charity, team Remembering Melissa will be kicking cancer in the pie-hole, with rainbows! Some of us will run some of us will walk but however we do it it will be while wearing rainbow socks, to show cancer that while it did take my sister and our friend, it won’t take our fabulousness! We will be joining thousands of other runners in rainbow socks, to create a moving human rainbow across Sydney Harbour! 100% of monies received go directly to research, no admin, no skimming, no BS! Chuck us a buck and feel instantly better about yourself!

About my cause: Love Your Sister

Love Your Sister is Australia’s most authentic and fastest-growing cancer charity.

Victorian Australian of the Year 2018 and Love Your Sister co-founder Samuel Johnson, has one simple message for anyone interested in solving the cancer conundrum...

“Love Your Sister passes on 100% of all individual donations IN FULL to the country’s best researchers. No skimming, no admin, no bull.”  - Samuel Johnson

It all started with the most absurd dare imaginable. Connie Johnson, young mum of two, was told that she was terminal with breast cancer and to arrange her affairs. Instead, she sent her brother, actor Samuel Johnson (best known as the guy who played ‘Molly’), to ride around the entire country on a unicycle, to personally remind every young mum in the land to check their boobs. Love Your Sister was born.

Samuel kept his promise. After 364 days atop his one-wheeler, over 1000 media calls, 450 community fundraisers and 50 school visits, Samuel finally returned to Federation Square on his unicycle and into Connie’s waiting arms. And the scientists at the Garvan Research Foundation found themselves $1.4M richer.

While Samuel’s insane unicycling adventure is done, Love Your Sister is not. Not while there’s still no cure. Not after Samuel promised the 360,000-strong Love Your Sister Village that he would up the fundraising goal to TEN million dollars. Currently, their total stands just over $7M. There is now a new Breast Cancer Lab at Garvan, headed by the Connie Johnson Fellow, Professor Elgene Lim, and a new national metastatic tissue bank, for all cancers, is rolling out this year.

After his Gold Logie-winning turn as Molly Meldrum for Network Seven, Samuel promptly retired from acting to focus entirely on Love Your Sister’s goal of raising ten million dollars for cancer research. In Samuel’s words, ‘Cancer is the last true riddle of our time (not of our doing) and I wanna be a part of the push to solve it once and for all. I won’t play pretend on telly while science is being muzzled’.

About Real Insurance Sydney Harbour 10k & 5k

The Real Insurance Sydney Harbour 10k and 5k sees over 5000 participants, starting at The Rocks, who run or walk around the sparkling Sydney Harbour. A great training event for Sydneysiders preparing for the winter and spring classics alongside those taking part in their first fun run. The 10k course starts at the historic Sydney Rocks, a one lap loop which hugs the harbour foreshore to ensure spectacular views throughout. The course will travel along Hickson Rd, through Cockle Bay, Darling Harbour, and back into The Rocks to the finish line outside the Overseas Passenger Terminal. The 5k also starts at The Rocks and continues around the edge of Sydney Harbour, under the famous Sydney Harbour Bridge before an out and back section along Hickson Road. Participants will return beneath the Harbour Bridge following the foreshore to the finish line with views of the Sydney Opera House.
