Run Melbourne 2019 took place on Sunday 28 July, and Fight Cancer Foundation’s TEAM Fight Cancer was out in force in support of Australians living with cancer.
Sixty five community fundraisers pounded the pavement in the 5km, 10km or half-marathon course. Whether they were aiming to beat a personal best or challenging themselves to something new, they all had one goal in common – to raise funds for Fight Cancer Foundation.
Just under $15,000 was raised by our incredible TEAM - funds which will directly support Australians living with cancer through our life-saving research and vital support programs.
Fight Cancer Foundation’s Managing Director, Eric Wright, was among those who took part and was thrilled with the turn out.
“It’s great to see so many members of the community come together to support Australian families facing the toughest battle of their lives. I can’t thank everyone who has gotten behind TEAM Fight Cancer enough.”
Fight Cancer Foundation’s marquee was a hub of activity as our TEAM members stopped by after their race to refuel. A special thanks to Gangemi’s Fruit and Vegetable for donating bananas for our runners.
Thank you so much to all those who took part - whether by running, donating or providing moral support! Check out our gallery below to see some of our TEAM Fight Cancer members on race day.
