Australia’s leading cancer scientists will depend more than ever on the support of the Australian Cancer Research Foundation to keep the funding up for their vital work, to get results in the race to find a cure for cancer.
Participating in charity marathons or an organised fundraising sporting event is not only lots of fun, but a great way you can help raise much needed funds for cancer research.
Whether you’re competing as part of a team or taking part individually, it’s as simple as registering for the sporting event and then asking your family, friends and colleagues to sponsor you. Plus a bit of training of course!
