School cup up for grabs

The San Hospital’s much loved San Run for Life is on November 15th after a 5 year break during major development of the Wahroonga site.

In 2010 participants included a record-breaking 1500 professional runners, local MP’s, school teams, hospital staff, families, and individuals from 4 to 84 years old.

This year’s event will fundraise to complete the San Integrated Cancer Centre with entrants running or walking in memory of a loved one whose life has been touched by cancer.

Events include a 5km walk, 5 km run or 10km run from and to the Hospital’s village green through local Wahroonga streets.

Open to corporate, school, and family teams, or individuals, local schools including Barker College and Pymble Ladies

College are amongst those competing for the Male or Female Schools Championship Cups.

“We love our students to be active and to be part of our local community” said Julie McAllister from Barker College.

”The San Run for Life gives us an opportunity to have fun and be healthy and with a Barker College team competing at the world cross country championships in Budapest next year, it’s a great training event for us while we raise money to help cancer patients. It’s really a win, win for us all.”

Encourage family and friends to register, set up a fundraising page, and raise funds for the San Foundation at www.sanrunforlife.com.au.

Registrations prior to November 15th will have their bibs marked with the name of who they are running for.

Run or walk

  • To celebrate survival - yours, your parents, your child's, your siblings, your friends
  • To remember the fight that others fought but didn’t win
  • To thank the doctors, nurses, pharmacists, physiotherapists, chemotherapy nurses, counsellors
  • To show resilience and courage, and that miracles do happen
  • To provide hope for those yet to fight the fight
  • As a refusal to give in
  • If you need closure
  • To show that wounds do heal, pain does fade, sadness passes and whatever life we have, it's worth living well
  • To remember that the colours of cancer are many …but so are colours of those who continue to look for a cure and those who treat and care for those who still rally against it
