While you’re doing good for your body at the Marina Run, why not do good for others at the same time by supporting this year’s event beneficiary, the Leukaemia Foundation.
By raising money, you can help give local families facing blood cancer the emotional and practical support they need, along with supporting the Leukaemia Foundation to invest in vital research into better treatments and cure.
Get involved and start fundraising by creating your online fundraising page now at the Leukaemia Foundation: BMA Mackay Marina Run 2018 website. This option is also available at the end of the online entry application.
Each participant who raises more than $250 will receive a Leukaemia Foundation branded running shirt and baseball cap.
The highest individual fundraiser and highest team fundraiser will be awarded trophies – so start fundraising and see how far you can go!
Last year, the Leukaemia Foundation provided 106 Mackay families with 8,129 nights of free accommodation both in Townsville and in Brisbane. Each family was supported for an average of 49 nights at one of the Leukaemia Foundation Villages.
Thanks for fundraising events like the Mackay Marina Run, the Leukaemia Foundation was also able to provide over $12,000 of financial assistance to Mackay families, helping to pay for essentials like groceries and transfers to Brisbane for vital treatment.
We now need YOUR help to ensure we can support even more local families this year.
