The following is a wrap up from Dainere’s Rainbow Brain Tumour Research Fund team about the weekends City2Surf run.

Again the Dainere’s Rainbow Team would like to express our congratulations and humble gratitude to both Mark and Jarrett for their truly phenomenal efforts on the day.

Deepest and heartfelt gratitude must also be expressed to all those wonderful people who made donations, gave words of encouragement, shared the fundraising link or put up posters. You are all contributing to elevating awareness and raising crucial funds to improve the outcomes, give hope and create change for every single most precious child diagnosed with this horrendous disease.

It is an honour to announce that as of this evening at total of $5225.76 has been raised through Mark and Jarrett’s massive efforts. Donations can still be made thorugh this linkcity2surf2017.everydayhero.com/…/dainere-s-rainbow-1

We know that both Mark and Jarrett are both extremely modest and their thoughts and motive for the run were focused on running for a cure but they deserve special recognition for what they each achieved on the day.

Mark, who ran in his second City2Surf and who only took up running in June 2015 saw his hard training and dedication pay off, as he ran a spectacular 1 hour 18 minutes and 46 seconds, smashing his 2016 time by 17 minutes and he not only did that he raised over his goal of $2000. We can hardly wait to see what he can achieve in 2018, perhaps a Red Group Start time. This is an extraordinary result, and he certainly is a Dainere’s Rainbow Champion.

Jarrett, running in his 5th City2Surf ,always running with Dainere in his heart and thoughts, also had his hard training and devotion see him run an amazing time of 51:51, a personal best on the course, he came 167th overall and 49th in the 20-29 Males, all best placings. He raised over $3000 and gained a preferred start for the 2018 event, and can certainly be called a Dainere’s Rainbow Champion also.

If you are interested in shining a light on paediatric brain tumours, giving the gift of hope and would like to join Mark and Jarrett in 2018 City2Surf, please contact us to express your interest.
