Beachside Dash for St George & Sutherland Medical Research Foundation

Starting and finishing in Peter Depena Park, Sans Souci, the Dash also takes in the beautiful views of Dolls Point and Brighton. It offers a 2km Dash, 5km and 10km run

In 2019, SSMRF is committed to investigating the impact that exercise can have during cancer treatment. Our goal is to raise $20,000 – the equivalent of an entire medical research seed grant. The price to enter the Dash only covers the cost of hosting the event. SSMRF relies on the generosity of fundraisers to ensure that we can give back to our hospitals. For example, $20,000 can help by funding a part-time clinical research nurse to coordinate a study into the effectiveness of exercise programs during chemotherapy and radiotherapy.

This is a real project that SSMRF currently supports. So, by fundraising for the Dash, you’ll be supporting research that is helping to beat cancer.
