Run The Sun-Herald City2Surf For Cancer Research

Join the world's largest fun run and raise money for cancer research!

You might not know what they look like. You probably don’t know their names. But everyday our superhero cancer researchers are doing everything they can to eliminate the threat of cancer for good.

One Australian dies every 12 minutes from cancer. It’s a heartbreaking reality, and the only way we’re ever going to improve outcomes for cancer patients is through research. That’s why Cure Cancer fund the cleverest, most ingenious research project from young scientists working across all cancer types.

We’ve been helping these real-life superheroes fly for the past 52 years, raising $66.2m and funding over 500 research grants to date. We’ve come a long way, but our mission won’t be complete until a cure for all cancers is found.

Once you’ve registered, we’ll be in touch to help you get started with your fundraising and provide you with all the information you need to get race ready. Remember, every dollar you raise will help our superheroes in their fight against this deadly disease.

By supporting Cure Cancer at this year’s City2Surf, you’ll be bringing us one step closer to making this the last generation to die from cancer.
