ACRF runners raise over $115K at City2Surf 2014!

IMG_3283It’s one of our favourite events of the year: the Sun Herald City2Surf – and it took place on Sunday, with more than 80,000 runners hitting the streets of Sydney for this spirited community race.

Thanks to the amazing work of 270 runners, Team ACRF has had its most successful City2Surf ever, raising over $115,000 towards cutting-edge cancer research! We’re overwhelmed by the generosity of our supporters – and hope they’ll take the chance to grab a few final donations with fundraising pages open for another four weeks.

Many of team ACRF’s runners have been affected by cancer. One supporter in particular, Fi, ran in support of her best friend Glenno, who is battling advanced melanoma. Fi is a cancer survivor herself, having been diagnosed with colorectal cancer four years’ ago.

Fi told us that she ran for Glenno because the challenge of Heartbreak Hill was nothing compared to what Glenno faces and she wanted to support him in any way possible. Fi has so far raised over $3,500 for cancer search.

As well as many new runners, we were thrilled to welcome back The Shirl’s Girls running team and David Griffith’s Ann’s Angels.

After running the gruelling 14km, our top supporters were treated to a BBQ at the exclusive ACRF beach chalet, which was sponsored by Steggles. Complimentary massages were also on offer, perfect for post-race relaxation.

We would like to thank everyone who participated in the City2Surf or supported a friend, co-worker or family member, without you this incredible achievement would not have been possible!

We hope you all had a fun and enjoyable experience – check out our photos from the day![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_gallery type=”flexslider_fade” interval=”0″ images=”22257,22258,22259,22260,22261,22262,22264,22265,22266,22267,22268,22269,22270,22271,22272,22273,22274,22275,22276,22277,22278,22279,22280,22281,22282″ onclick=”link_image” custom_links_target=”_self” img_size=”large”][/vc_column][/vc_row]
