Here's a list of our Upcoming Events
Melanoma March for Melanoma Institute Australia
March 2024Melanoma March is a wonderful family and community event where participants walk, march and parade along a 4km course to raise awareness, remember loved ones lost to melanoma, and raise funds for vital research. Melanoma March was established in 2012 by Melanoma Institute Australia (MIA). The inaugural Melanoma March, held in Manly, was initially a local event honouring the memory of those who have died from melanoma, while also providing an opportunity to raise vital funds and awareness. The event quickly grew, becoming a national initiative of MIA and the major annual fundraising campaign to support ongoing melanoma research. The Melanoma March campaign provides critical funding for an ambitious new MIA-led project that will ultimately transform the way patients are treated by shining a research light on melanoma care.MORE INFO / REGISTER

Run2Cure Neuroblastoma is a fun run organised by the registered charity, Neuroblastoma Australia.
Run2Cure is held annually in The Domain, Sydney and has attracted between 3000-5000 participants for 10 years. Run2Cure is the charity’s largest fundraising event for research into the aggressive childhood cancer, neuroblastoma.
Neuroblastoma is a solid tumour of childhood cancer. It develops from nerve cells called neuroblasts. These cells are most commonly found in the adrenal glands (above the kidney) and along the tissues around the spinal cord.
There are no known reasons as to why this cancer occurs and there are no clear environmental links. There are rare cases where neuroblastoma runs in families due to a genetic mutation, but in most cases there is no known genetic cause.
Neuroblastoma is a very complex cancer and there are many different types that behave very differently. At one end of the spectrum are benign tumours that may even resolve spontaneously, while at the other end are aggressive tumours with an average survival rate of 40%.MORE INFO / REGISTER

FUNx4 is where 4WD adventure meets fundraising. As a participant, you will experience some of the best 4WD terrain in Australia, make new friends and help kids and their families whose lives are impacted by cancer.
Each year this event will aim to go beyond the classic rural dirt tracks. On FUNx4 you will literally tackle that slippery slope by day and camp under the stars at night. The event will take you through iconic 4WD playgrounds and 4WD Low Range will be your friend for hours during this 6-day adventure.
Designed for stock standard 4WD vehicles, this is a week worth committing to. Camp Quality will organise your meals when we are in “civilisation”, otherwise you can show us your best bush kitchen skills when we sleep under the stars.
So, if you have a 4WD, a swag, a big heart and are after an adventure that will make a difference to Australian families impacted by cancer, then Camp Quality FUNx4 is for you.MORE INFO / REGISTER
The Bay Run
Sunday 6 August 2023
The BayRun fun run is an annual Inner West community event that brings people together to promote and enjoy health, fun and exercise.
The event is a 7 km fun run (or walk), 7km run with your dog and a kids 2km run around the beautiful Iron Cove, making it a great warm up race for other fun runs like the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival.
Beachside Dash for St George & Sutherland Medical Research Foundation
Sunday 10 September 2023
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.MORE INFO / REGISTER
