5th Emer Casey Memorial Melbourne Fun Run and Walk

The 5th Emer Casey Memorial Melbourne fun run and walk will take place on Sunday May 27th 2012 at 12pm. Registration starts at Clayton Campus Monash University Melbourne at 8.30am.

The Emer Casey Foundation is funding Professor Campbell and his team based at Peter MacAllum Centre Melbourne.

This centre is unique within Australia’s public health system in that it is the only hospital solely dedicated to cancer research.

All money raised by the Melbourne run goes to support two cancer genetics programmes which focus on research into familial breast and ovarian cancer.

The Emer Casey Melbourne runs have contributed €48,000 to these programmes.

Sonia O’Sullivan former world champion and Olympic silver medallist will again participate this year to show her support for this worthy cause.

It promises to be a great day with lots of prizes, music, spot prizes and celebrations.
