Friday 5th Mar
After months of restrictions and not knowing if the event would be going ahead we're finally running!
This year, we have a superstar team to help us complete the Surf Coast Century Ultramarathon including over 25kms on sand and 2000m of climbing.
Brain cancer still has no cure, kills more children than any other disease and more people under 40 than any other cancer but brain cancer research is on the tipping point.
We can all be part of making important breakthroughs happen. Our fundraising is something that we can do to support the science and in the meantime the patients currently battling brain tumours - a cause very close to our hearts.
Team 1, NG/E - Joel Alexander, Patrick Flynn, Julian Hampton and Tom Young
Specifically, the funds raised will go towards the Alfie Chivers Crisper Project funded by the Robert Connor Dawes (RCD) Foundation, the project is named in honour of Sara Chivers and her 18-month-old son Alfie, dear friends and family of the runners who both passed away from brain cancer in 2018.
CRISPR technology is a tool for editing the genome and enables scientists to identify mutations driving resistance to cancer treatment in patients. Further details can be found at https://rcdfoundation.org/alfie-chivers-crispr-project/6013/
Thank you in advance for all your support.
