Here’s a list of our Upcoming Events
Melanoma March for Melanoma Institute Australia
Melanoma March 2020
Melanoma 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

Sunday 25 October - Sunday 1 November 2020
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
RunforLife for San Foundation
Postponed to 2021
The San RunforLife returns on Sunday 30 August. No matter what your running ability is, you can take part as a team with friends and colleagues, or bring your family for the 5km walk.
Participants will have the choice of a 5km or 10km course, with the 5km including walk or run options. Walkers are not permitted to enter the 10km event. The 10km course consists of a two-lap 5km course. The San Foundation hopes to attract close to 1500 individual, family, school, elite, and social walkers and runners in the 2019 event.
The San RunforLife Fun Run 2016 is fundraising to help us treat cancer patients:
- Run to celebrate survival – yours, your parents, your child’s, your siblings, your friend
- Run to remember the fight that others fought that didn’t make it – Run to honour their memory
- Run as a refusal to give in, run if you need closure
- Run to thank the doctors the nurses, the pharmacists, the physiotherapists, the chemotherapy nurses, the counsellors
- Run to show resilience, strength, courage, and that miracles do happen
- Run to show that wounds do heal, that pain does fade, that sadness passes and that whatever life we are blessed with, it’s worth living well
- Run to remember that the colours of cancer are many but so too are colours of those who continue to look for a cure, and those who treat and care for those who still rally against it
- Run to provide hope for those yet to fight the fight
Sydney Adventist Hospital, fondly known as ‘The San’, is a not for profit Hospital, which has been serving the health needs of the community for over 100 years.

The Bay Run
Sunday 2 August 2020
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 29 November 2020
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
