Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) has launched its inaugural 2km A Day in May challenge, encouraging Australians to get active each day to raise vital funds for life-saving cancer research.
2km A Day in May runs for the entire month of May, aiming to raise $250,000. This fun campaign, encourages people to get outdoors, live a healthy lifestyle and exercise. Whether that’s walking with friends or your pooch, running or cycling as long as you get active for at least 2km per day.
ACRF’s CEO, Kerry Strydom said, Australian Cancer Research Foundation backs brilliant cancer research and cutting-edge technology that drives innovation and ultimately – helps to save millions of lives.
“Fundraising campaigns such as ‘2km A Day in May’ helps us raise essential funds that allows us to back cancer research projects that push boundaries and blaze new trails,” said Kerry. “We’re encouraging all Aussies to get behind this new initiative, it’s a fun campaign that you can do with friends or on your own. Together we can unite as a community, raise vital funds that bring us closer to a world without cancer.” Participants can register or donate to 2km a Day in May here.
