On the first weekend in July more than 24,000 people turned out to take part in the Gold Coast Airport Marathon events. With 6 events over 2 days there was something for all ages and fitness levels!
Amongst the thousands were 6 ACRF supporters competing in various events over the weekend.
Each of our supporters had their own personal reason for competing for cancer research. A few were inspired by their family and friends who had been through cancer and remained positive and courageous throughout their treatment. Others were taking on this challenge in honour of lost family members in the hope that their fundraising might help spare other families from going through what they had been through. Regardless of their specific motivations, they all knew that every dollar of every donation raised would be going to cancer research and in the process hopefully bringing us closer to a cure.
Congratulations to our wonderful supporters who raised over $5,600 for cancer research! Thank you Ally, Fiona (Running for Remission Possible), Kathryn, Lloyd, Miles & Zeyna for your outstanding contributions and to all your supporters for their generosity!
We’ll see you all again for the 2012 Gold Coast Airport Marathon!
