The Kids’ Cancer Project is thrilled to partner with Neuroblastoma Australia through their Run 2 Cure Fun Run and Family Day.
“We are proud to announce that The Kids’ Cancer Project will be a key partner and beneficiary of our Run2Cure Fun Run and Family Fun Day in 2016,” said Michaela Flanagan, President of Neuroblastoma Australia.
Now in its third year, Run2Cure Fun Run and Family Fun Day held will be held on Sunday 5 June 2016 in Sydney’s iconic Domain and Botanical Gardens and is set to be bigger and better than ever.
Run2Cure is an event for the whole family with entertainment and fun run categories for all ages and levels.
There’s a ten, five and three kilometre certified course and a family-friendly one kilometre walk for children under five years of age who are also encouraged to dress up as their favourite superhero.
“We’re thrilled to partner with Neuroblastoma Australia and see this event as a great way to reaffirm our commitment and support of families with cancer and we are excited to encourage our network to participate and join in the fun,” said Owen Finegan, Chief Executive of The Kids’ Cancer Project.
“We believe collaboration with like-minded organisations is imperative in raising awareness and supporting research to help kids with cancer," said Finegan.
Neuroblastoma is the leading single cause of cancer deaths of children under five with only 50 per cent of children expected to survive their diagnosis.
Neuroblastoma Australia is charity for families and friends affected by neuroblastoma that started in 2010 inspired by little Sienna Hoffmann who tragically lost her battle to the disease and Ciara Flanagan who is a neuroblastoma survivor.
Run2Cure has contributed over $430,000 to research into the disease.
“Research is critical, we don’t need miracles, just more research,” said Flanagan.
The Family Fun Day is on Sunday 5 June 2016 from 8am – 1pm at the Domain in Sydney. There will fun activities for kids including a petting zoo and pony rides.
Donate to research and help find more effective treatments for kids with cancer.
