Meet some of our dedicated fundraisers who have supported Australian families fighting against cancer over the past few years.
Ariell, HBF Run for a Reason 2017
"This year I decided to raise money for Fight Cancer Foundation. I like that they provide support to patients and families as well as their focus on research."
Lia, Run Melbourne 2017
"Running for Fight Cancer Foundation as part of TEAM Fight Cancer is bringing us together as friends. We love being involved with a community event, and it’s so fun doing something together we wouldn’t normally do.”
Kate, Rottnest Channel Swim 2017
"I wanted to support a charity that not only provided care and treatment for people suffering from the disease, but also a charity that helps provide support to the families and carers."
Kylie Gould, Run Melbourne 2017
"I'm not a runner by any stretch of the imagination, but I know that by participating in Run Melbourne, I'll be helping this amazing charity make a difference in the lives of people affected by cancer."
Jason, Perth City to Surf 2016
"By raising money for Fight Cancer Foundation, I am hoping to honour a man I greatly respected and called a friend. Most importantly is to help decrease the amount of people who have to leave behind a wonderful wife and three kids before it is their time."
Thomas, City2Sea 2017
"I want to join in the fight to put cancer back on its heels, back up against the ropes until eventually it accepts defeat and throws in the white towel."
Leonie Walsh, City2Sea 2017
"My reason for participating in City2Sea is twofold. Firstly, I hope to raise awareness of the important work of Fight Cancer Foundation and secondly, signing up for these types of challenges helps me to keep the focus on my own personal health and fitness."
Annie, City2Sea 2016
"As someone who has just finished studying nursing, I know how important cancer research is, especially since cancer rates are increasing. I also sadly lost my mum to cancer, so supporting Fight Cancer Foundation in City2Sea was an obvious choice."
Greta, Run Melbourne 2016
"As a primary school teacher, Fight Cancer Foundation's 'Back on Track' educational support programs for children undergoing cancer treatments across Australia, was reason enough to participate."
Peta, Run Melbourne 2017
"My mother was diagnosed and treated for breast cancer last year. From this first-hand experience, I know how important support for cancer patients and families is, that's why I chose to fundraise for Fight Cancer Foundation."
Claire, Run Melbourne 2016
"Fight Cancer Foundation's work stands out to me because it provides services that many may not realise are needed in the battle against cancer. Their programs speak to me because they acknowledge and address challenges in the fight against cancer that are not always foreseen at the moment of diagnosis.
