Currently, children come second in the world of cancer research – the children affected by neuroblastoma are on average just two years old. They are too little to represent themselves.
One in two children diagnosed with aggressive neuroblastoma will not survive.
We need to change this and we need your help.
When you register for the run you will be able to set up your own fundraising page(provided you are over 18 years of age) which you can then share with your friends and contacts, via facebook, twitter or by email.
Since 2014, the Neuroblastoma Run2Cure events have collectively raised over $1 million for research into better, kinder and more effective treatments for this devastating children's cancer.
To help you reach your fundraising targets, we've put together a Fundraising Toolkit featuring 6 top tips and downloadable documents that you can implement today to help showcase your personal fundraising page and boost your donations to motivate you to get over the finish line!

We have fabulous rewards for those runners who choose to make a difference - our first reward of a pair of Run2Cure branded Steigen socks (worth $19.95) is yours when you reach just $60.
We also have thank you rewards available at the $150, $1000 and $1500 milestones. To receive fundraising thank you prizes, and collect them at our Run2Cure event, fundraising must be completed by 10:00am on Sunday 3rd April.
For anyone who fundraises $300 or more, your name will be included in a prize draw! You will have the chance to win a running prize package worth $1,000, including vouchers toward running gear, Run2Cure branded merchandise and more.
We offer rewards in recognition of the work involved with fundraising however we
understand that some of our generous supporters would prefer not to
receive these rewards. So we also offer everyone the
choice to donate what you've earned back
to the charity to help with future fundraisers.

Every single dollar raised will make a significant difference.
Examples of the difference your funds will make
Will support the cost of the chemicals, staffing and equipment needed to screen 25 drug compounds which could potentially save a child with neuroblastoma and improve their quality of life.
Will provide six months’ supply of antibody to detect abnormal proteins in tumours so we can find out more about what causes neuroblastoma.
Will help pay for the advanced technology required to examine one neuroblastoma sample. This will give us more information about the disease that we can use to design a treatment.
Will fund an innovative drug trial for one child with neuroblastoma and potentially save their life. Trials are essential to boost survival rates.
