Support Rare Cancers Australia Ltd in the Sydney Marathon 2023

We believe that no Australian should have to face their cancer journey alone. With your support, no Australian has to. At Rare Cancers Australia we specialise in supporting Australians who have no straightforward path through their cancer journey. No matter how hard it gets, we are in their corner.

In Australia each year, around 52,000 people are diagnosed with a rare or less common cancer; that equals 1 person every 10 minutes. 25,000 Australians won’t survive. Treatment options are limited, mortality is high, and it can be an incredibly lonely and uncertain journey.

Last year, our Patient Support Team experienced a 50% increase in the number of families we support across Australia. This year, referral numbers to this team are currently doubling, with the needs of Australians living with rare cancer becoming more extensive, and more complex.

Support us in the Sydney Marathon.

The 2023 Sydney Marathon is an iconic event with a spectacular course that includes a run over the Sydney Harbour Bridge and a finish at the Opera House. The festival will be held on September 17, 2023 and features the Sydney Marathon, Sydney Marathon 21km, Sydney Marathon 10km and the Sydney Marathon Family Fun Run 3.5km - so there is something for everyone. 40,000 runners are expected to participate in 2023.

What’s more, if you raise $500* or more as an individual, using an official Sydney Marathon fundraising page, you will receive the FULL cost of your ticket back in your bank account. It typically takes 7 donations to raise $500, so it’s well within reach. * Terms and conditions apply
