The 2020 MY Mount Eliza Run & Fun Festival on Sunday, March 15, will celebrate the importance of health and wellness while raising awareness of the blood cancer multiple myeloma.
Festival director Geoff Nyssen said: “Our event thrives on community spirit and next year will raise funds for the Snowdome Foundation to support ground-breaking medical research, clinical trials and personalised therapies for the treatment of blood cancers.”
The festival aims to raise $80,000 and #HelpGeoffTo80; with myeloma being a terminal cancer, Geoff is determined to dance the funky chicken at his 80th birthday party. “We are proud to work with and are grateful for the support of our community partner, Ryman Healthcare, our gold sponsors Ritchies, Peninsula Grammar, Peninsula Pet Care and The Bays Hospital, and media partner Mornington Peninsula Magazine.”
A new 12km run option will be available for the first time next year, along with the popular 4km dog-friendly walk and the 8km run. Registrations open in December at mymounteliza.org.au
