Run the S2S for SSMRF

SSMRF is very excited to announce that we have been added as one of the charities of choice for the 2016 Sutherland 2 Surf.

On Sunday 24 July you can join 8,000 other runners as you tackle the 11 km course.

Best of all, if you choose to fundraise for SSMRF & exceed $100, you’ll receive a free entry in our St.George Bank Beachside Dash in Sans Souci.

On Sunday 11 September, we’ll be celebrating the 9th anniversary of the St.George Bank Beachside Dash, which raises money for medical research undertaken in our local hospitals.

We stage three distances – 10km, 5km and 2km. We also have some surprises in store!

This year, our goal is to fundraise $20,000 which is the equivalent cost of a part-time clinical research nurse. This funding can be used to coordinate a study into the effectiveness of exercise programs during chemotherapy and radiotherapy – like the project of Dr Fernando Roncolato, which is being funded by SSMRF in 2016.

So, as you train for the Sutherland 2 Surf, you can fundraise for the Dash, and score yourself a free entry in the process!

But best of all, your fundraising can change the health outcomes of cancer survivors!

Ticket sales for the S2S are now open at sutherland2surf.com.aubut make sure you click here to create your fundraising page for SSMRF.
