Please support my Half Marathon attempt and vital cancer research!

Hi everyone,

In a moment of madness a few weeks ago I put my hand up for the half marathon in the Sydney Running Festival which runs on September 20. I've just finished my second week of a 14 week training program with Can Too. I completed 8kms today - I've still got a long way to go but I'm determined to cross the finish line.

Can Too is a fantastic organisation that trains people like me for events to raise vital funds for Cure Cancer Australia so that they can provide grants to local scientists pursuing breakthrough cancer research here in Australia.

I’m asking you to sponsor my Half Marathon attempt to raise funds for this vital cancer research. My goal is to raise $2,000.

It’s easy to donate and it’s tax deductible. Just follow these simple steps:

  1. Go to
  2. On the menu bar click on Sponsor a Participant.
  3. On the drop down menu click on Online Sponsorship.
  4. Enter the surname of the participant you wish to sponsor (HAZELL). Click on Search.
  5. Tick the name of the person you wish to sponsor (Georgia Hazell) and enter your sponsorship amount (enter the amount in figures only i.e. 50.00).
  6. Click on Add Sponsorship.
  7. Enter your details. Click Submit.

After you’ve made your donation, you’ll receive an automatic notification via email that the sponsorship has been received along with a tax deductible receipt.

Thank you so much in advance for your support and generosity! I’ll let you know how I'm progressing and if/how I survive the day of madness!
