The 2018 City2Surf will be the sixth time competing for Jarrett Anthoney in the run as well as fundraising for much needed awareness and funds for Dainere’s Rainbow Brain Tumour Research Fund, supporting The Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation.
Dainere’s Rainbow is a charity set up by Jarrett’s family which gives 100% of funds raised and donated directly to Childhood Brain Tumour Research. Dainere, Jarrett’s little sister, was only 15 years old when she tragically passed away in 2013 from her Brain Tumour. In 2013 before she passed away, together they planned that Jarrett could raise funds for Paediatric Brain Tumour Research through running in the City2Surf and having a fundraising page. He has done this for the past 6 City2Surf runs and will continue to each year to get ever closer to finding a cure for this insidious disease.
For the past two years Mark from My Gungahlin has supported Jarrett in running City2Surf as a team. Jarrett being a little faster than Mark runs ahead to clear the path for Mark to come through sometime much later… This year Mark’s wife, Nicole join Jarrett and Mark as part of Dainere’s Rainbow Team. You can also be part of this team if you are planning on taking on the challenge at City2Surf 2018. Knowing you are doing it for the personal challenge and a good cause will help you conquer heartbreak hill!
There are two ways you can fundraise to support Dainere’s Rainbow Brain Tumour Research Fund.
When registering for City2Surf choose Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation as your charity and fundraise as much as you can! If you raise over $100 you will receive a Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation singlet for the event. Make sure you let Dainere’s Rainbow know via email that you want to be part of the team and you will be added to a closed Facebook group where you will get training hints and tips from Jarrett. The team will also support you with your fundraising and provide information about the event if this is your first time.
As a Charity Superstar you must commit to raising at least $1,000 and you get:
- Entry fee covered
- Start in the Charity Superstar group (get ahead of the crowds)
- Sydney Children’s Hospital Foundation TEAM KIDS singlet
- Access to SCHF marquee at the end of the event
- Access to Dainere’s Rainbow City2Surf 2018 closed Facebook group
If this is not for you but you want to support this fundraiser you can make a donation. Every single donation is greatly appreciated, be it $5 or $50. If you cannot afford to make a donation, sharing Jarrett’s fundraising page or Mark’s fundraising page on social media, with your family and friends or workplace is just as appreciated. Nicole will have her donation page up soon!
Last year Jarrett ran a time which qualified him to start in the preferred group (up in the front area) this year, he is looking to smashing his time even more this year, hopefully smash the amount of fundraising also!!
Please donate if you can or please share the team link – either or both would be incredibly appreciated. https://city2surf2018.everydayhero.com/au/team-dainere-s-rainbow
