Over the Christmas period we reported on Dainere Anthoney and her Christmas Wonderland In Gungahlin. Dainere Anthoney is a very special young lady who is battling terminal cancer. Dainere, was diagnosed with a brain tumour, called medulloblastoma in 2009 and had a relapse on her spine in 2012.

Unfortunately this cancer is incurable. You can read her very inspirational blog at Dainere’s Journey. Dainere also has a book she has written ‘ You have to go through a storm to get a rainbow’.

Dainere’s brother Jarrett has challenged himself to run the City 2 Surf to raise money for The Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation Brain Tumour Research Fund. Brain Tumours are the second most common cancer in childhood after leukaemia, and unlike any other cancers the incidence of brain tumours are increasing. While there have been many improvements in treatment, brain tumours remain amongst the most difficult childhood cancers to cure and are seriously under-funded. “Dainere is getting more sick with each and every day that passes. It will be such an honour to run in this years City 2 Surf for her. She is such a big inspiration to me and many others as she has been through so much and has never given up.” This run will the be the longest race Jarrett has ever undertaken.

Jarrett has set himself an impressive goal of fundraising $15,000 for The Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation Brain Tumour Research Fund. This is a MASSIVE target that he has set himself. I am amazed that to date he has managed to raise $13,005! Well done Jarrett that is incredible and I have no doubt you will hit your target.

To donate to Jarrett’s fundraiser please visit his Everyday Hero page.

The 2013 Sun-Herald City2Surf presented by Westpac for Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation will be held on the 11th August 2013. We wish Jarrett the best of luck for the run.
