Spencer’s Story

This Colorectal Cancer awareness month we’d like to shout out to the heroes that continue to ensure ACRF can fund pioneering research to improve patient outcomes.

Loyal ACRF supporter Spencer Hird has supported bold cancer research by putting rubber to the road. He’s run Sydney’s City2Surf 47 times – even participating in the event virtually during COVID.

Sadly, Mr Hird lost his wife Heather in 1994 to bowel cancer. “I started fundraising soon after her passing and my focus has always been to give to cancer research. I am always impressed when I hear of improvements to treatments and diagnosis. It is so good to feel I might have contributed to that” says Mr Hird.

Thank you for your continued support Mr Hird.
