Last weekend Sydney’s northern beaches were host to two widely attended events. The Cole Classic, now in its 28th year, and the brand new fun run, the Sun Run, making its debut. Thousands of people turned out across the two days to compete in these events, and among them were 13 ACRF supporters.
Some of these supporters were competing for the first time, others were veterans for these sort of events, and each had their own personal reason for choosing to fundraise for cancer research. Some are cancer survivors and some have experienced the devastating loss of family and friends to cancer. Some also chose to support the ACRF because they believe that in funding research into all types of cancer we will make our way towards a cure.
Our 6 competitors for the inaugural Sun Run turned out on one of the hottest Sydney days to run the 6.45km course from Dee Why to Manly, and our 7 Cole Classic competitors were among a record 4,100 participants making the swim from Shelley Beach to Manly Beach.
Congratulations to all of our stellar supporters on your race achievements and a huge thank you for all your fundraising, totalling over $3400 for cancer research! Thank you Adrian, Alana, Belinda, Caitlin, Chris, Deborah, Elizabeth, Jonathan, Kevin, Pamela, Sarah, Steven & Suellen.
