We are a team of friends, looking to complete the relay marathon in under 3 hours, and raise over $2,000 for Cancer Council NSW. For me personally, the event will mark the 3 year anniversary of my mother passing away from Pancreatic Cancer, just 4 months after she was diagnosed.
Last year’s event raised $100k, bringing their total to about $900k since 2012. These funds help cancer education programs targeting healthy lifestyles and diets for children. In particular, this is aimed at families of lower socioeconomic backgrounds, who are twice as likely to be obese as people from wealthier backgrounds. Currently 22% of NSW children are overweight or obese and a high proportion will go on to become overweight adults, increasing their risk of 11 different types of cancer.
All donations are much appreciated!
