Join families, individuals, friends and neighbours at the fourth MY Mount Eliza Run and Fun Festival this month for a great day out while raising money to find a cure for blood cancers.
Festival director and founder Geoff Nyssen says he has lost many dear friends to blood cancers over the past few years. “I am sure that I am not alone in experiencing this sense of loss,” Geoff says. “We want to desperately find a cure for all blood cancers so no more people suffer and their families can celebrate many more birthdays with their loved ones.”
It is for this reason that Geoff and his festival committee have this year set the ambitious goal of raising $80,000 for the Snowdome Foundation, which directs all of its funds into blood cancer research. This is all in the pursuit of helping Geoff and others with blood cancer live to 80, hence the hashtag #HelpGeoffTo80
