C2S 2024

Some words from those running and raising awareness and funds for Dainere’s Rainbow as part of City2Surf 2024. Please support them as they take on this challenging 14km event.

“I have been running in the City2Surf since 2013  as a meaningful and special initiative and something Dainere and I planned together to help bring hope, cease suffering and see a cure for childhood brain cancer and now every year I continue her legacy and raise funds in memory of my inspiring little sister, Dainere, who devastatingly died from brain cancer on 24th  June, 2013 aged just 15.

Racing and raising desperately required awareness and crucial funds for childhood brain cancer for Dainere’s Rainbow and supporting Sydney Children’s Hospitals Foundation is something I have diligently and passionately done since then and plan to continue to do for many years to come.

No children or their families should so unjustly suffer or face a lifetime of loss, grief and heartache because of such a horrific disease, that receives so little funding or support.

This is my 11th City2Surf and over that time, I am humbled and honoured to have raised a remarkable $90, 136.11 in this event and this year for City2Surf 2024 I would be exceedingly grateful and hoping that you may support my  fundraising to take me over the $100,000 raised!

Even a donation of $2 means so much or if you are not in the position to donate, then please share my page with everyone you know, because together we can make a difference.” – Jarrett Anthoney

“I am thrilled to be back at City2Surf in 2024 after an injury preventing me from taking part in 2023. This is my fourth City2Surf running as part of Team Dainere’s Rainbow. It is an honour to run in Dainere’s honour and spread the word about the good things Dainere’s Rainbow is doing to elevate awareness and raise funds for Australian research into childhood brain cancer.” – Nicole Scarborough

“Last year I had a brilliant run at City2Surf with a massive PB and getting close to my goal of running sub 80 minutes to qualify for the red start group. This is my sixth City2Surf running with Team Dainere’s Rainbow. This year I hope to raise $1,000 which will bring my total for Dainere’s Rainbow to $12,000.” – Mark Scarborough

We also welcome Diane Biaggini who is running for the very first year and raising crucial funds for Dainere’s Rainbow.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land where we meet and work, the Ngunnawal people, and the many other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples from across Australia who have now made Canberra their home. We celebrate and respect their continuing culture and the contribution they make to the life of the ACT and region.

Dainere's Rainbow is a not for profit organisation - 100% of all funds raised or donated go to childhood brain cancer research at Sydney Children's Hospital
