Our goal is to raise funds for neuroblastoma childhood cancer research. Neuroblastoma is the leading cause of death of children under 5 from cancer. High risk neuroblastoma has survival rates of just 50%. With your support, we know that we can help fund safer and more effective treatments and find a cure for this aggressive cancer.
Train like an Olympian
Neuroblastoma Australia ambassador and Rio Pentathlon gold medalist Chloe Esposito will get you in shape for the big day with 5 exclusive workout videos. We’ll send you these videos in the lead up to the event. You can complete these quick, effective (and Olympic-level) workouts in just 5 minutes! We ask in return is for each runner in our group to please raise as much as they can for our cause. We are so grateful for your support!
About Neuroblastoma Australia
Neuroblastoma Australia is inspired by little Sienna Hoffmann who tragically lost her battle against the disease in 2010 when she was just two and a half years old. Sienna’s mother, Lucy Jones started fundraising after Sienna was first diagnosed in 2008 as she was so shocked by this dreadful disease. In 2010 another mother, Michaela Flanagan with a little girl Ciara, diagnosed with neuroblastoma, joined Lucy and the charity Neuroblastoma Australia was founded. Since then, over 1.5 million dollars has been raised for neuroblastoma research
> $1.56 million has been raised since 2010
> The average age of diagnosis is just 2
> 1 in 2 children do not survive aggressive Neuroblastoma
