Neuroblastoma almost exclusively strikes infants and children. It is the third most common type of childhood cancer, after leukaemia and brain tumours, yet it is the #1 cause of cancer deaths in children under 5. The average age of diagnosis is just 2 years and aggressive neuroblastoma carries a survival rate of just 50%.
The Run2Cure Neuroblastoma will be held in The Domain & the Botanical Gardens on 22 June, 2014 with the apt theme of ‘Super Heros’. Runners are encouraged to dress up in support of those who have lost their lives or who are suffering from the disease, with all proceeds going to the Children’s Cancer Institute and Cancer Council NSW for research into neuroblastoma. The Little Heroes 1km at 10:30am is a fun, easy walk around The Domain for children under five and their families, with the focus being little children helping little children – as neuroblastoma is tragically a little children’s cancer.
