On Sunday 29th May 2016, Mazzie Paull from Team Mazzie passed away from ovarian cancer. Over the last three years Team Mazzie have been amazing supporters of the Emer Casey fun run. They have raised thousands of dollars for ovarian cancer research at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and have brought hundreds of people to our run every year. Our thoughts are with Team Mazzie, in particular Mazzie’s four inspirational children who have done so much over the last number of years to support our cause.
Emer Casey Fun Run for Ovarian Cancer
The 9th annual Emer Casey Fun Run for Ovarian Cancer was held on 22nd May 2016 at Jells Park, Wheelers Hill. Over 500 participants jogged and walked around Jells Park to help raise much needed funds and awareness for ovarian cancer. We are truly amazed by people's generosity and spirit and want to say a heartfelt thank you to Team Mazzie who had over 100 runners take part and raised over $13,000. We are still hoping to raise $50,000 for ovarian cancer research at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. You can still donate here.
When Irish Solicitor Emer Casey died of ovarian cancer in June 2006 at the age of 28, her family vowed to do all they could to help progress research into early detection of the disease known as "the silent killer". The Emer Casey Foundation was established in Emer's Memory and this was the ninth year of the Emer Casey Fun Run for Ovarian Cancer in Melbourne. The money raised is donated to support the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. Read more here
