This year we were delighted to cheer on a record 96 runners in Team Lifehouse for the Sun-Herald City2Surf raising over $32,000. Every runner, walker, stroller had a story that inspired them to take on this iconic fun run – each of them different, every one of them with the same goal – to help make a difference to the patients we see each day.
Chloe Raskopoulos tackled the run for the very first time for her mum and raised over $2,500.
“My mum ran 10kms every morning. It has been nearly seven years since we lost our amazing athlete. In 2010, when she was being treated for stage four lung cancer at RPA, while Chris O’Brien Lifehouse was still under construction. I can only imagine the difference such a world-class treatment centre has made for patients and their families in the past few years. That’s why I have decided to honour my incredible mum and raise money for Lifehouse by entering City2Surf for the first time.” says Chloe.
Also taking on HeartBreak Hill were Debbie and Paul Adams – inspired by Debbie’s brother they raised over $4,000.
I have seen the wonderful work that the Chris O’Brien Lifehouse does not only in providing treatment for patients but also the continual research that is being done to try to come up with a cure for this dreadful disease. says Debbie
We thank all our runners and hope to see you all again next year.
