Doin it for Dad...and...
As some of you know, my dad (aka Poppy, Trev, Beachball, Crack) has recently lost the battle to melanoma - it won the fight despite him participating in a cancer drug trial, radiation and chemo. He asked me to lose weight, get fit and live a long healthy life – which I am now trying to do. So, in order to motivate me a little more, I thought that a fun run might be a good goal to aim for when I came across the Brisbane Twilight Run which is raising funds for the CURE CANCER AUSTRALIA FOUNDATION. Cure Cancer Australia has been operating since 1967 and acts as a front line source to provide vital start up funding for innovative, groundbreaking research projects across all types of cancer.
So the run is held on March 18, 2012. There are a number of run options – half marathon, 10km, 3km or kids challenge. For those of you who can't join me, but would like to support me to raise funds for this charity, please donate. I would be very honoured. As would dad. If you have others that I don’t know who would like to join our team, or would like to donate, please pass this on.
The team name is “Doin it for Dad...and...” (the ...and... is so that you can also make this a personal journey for someone who has battled cancer that you want to do it for).
Cure Cancer Australia Foundation
CURE CANCER AUSTRALIA'S focus is to find a cure for cancer.
One in two families are touched by cancer in their lifetime and Cure Cancer Australia is determined to improve prevention, detection and treatment outcomes to reduce the suffering caused by cancer.
In 2013, Cure Cancer Australia will provide 38 research grants totalling $3.2million to the best young researchers in our country with fresh approaches across all areas of cancer research.
$50 funds one hour, $1,900 funds one week, $8,300 funds one month and $100,000 funds one year of vital cancer research.
Untold thousands of lives have already been saved as a result of research. However, one life lost to cancer is still one too many. Cure Cancer Australia will not give up on the fight until we can realise 'a world without cancer, nothing less. ' We simply couldn't continue our work without the support of people like you.
Thank you for your support!
