Cure Brain Cancer is proud to be a charity partner with Run Melbourne 2017!
Please join #TeamCureBrainCancer by running in the 5km, 10km, or half marathon on Sunday, July 30th 2017 at Federation Square as a charity champion!
We have 40 exclusive Charity Champion spots for Run Melbourne 2017. Each exclusive spot requires a $1000 fundraising commitment for the 5km and 10km, and a $1,500 fundraising commitment for the half marathon (21.1km).
Our goal is to reach $300,000 for innovative brain cancer research – and we cannot do that without YOU! Please do what you can to help us become the #1 fundraising team for Run Melbourne 2017!
Apply today to join us in the battle against brain cancer.
If you can’t commit to raising $1,000 for Cure Brain Cancer, you can still run as a General Runner and we’ll send you a Cure Brain Cancer running vest to run in! Just register for the run on the Run Melbourne website here, and then set up your Everyday Hero page as part of Team Cure Brain Cancer!
In 2014, Sally White crossed the Run Melbourne finish line surrounded by her friends and family. She had battled brain cancer for eight years and devastatingly lost her battle with the disease in December 2014.
Sally played an invaluable role in raising awareness and inspired all who met her. A large number of our Team Cure Brain Cancer runners in 2014 ran for Sally – and raised close to $120,000, bringing our total raised to $280,000.
“Sally never gave up and put up a tremendous fight despite the odds. I will always remember her gentleness and beautiful smile, but most of all I will remember her getting out of the wheelchair at Run Melbourne to walk across the finish line!!! That image will stay with me forever.”
