Fundraiser in Carysfort Park

13 November 2022

Blackrock Athletic Club is attempting to raise €50K by running 5,128km – the distance from Carysfort Park to Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York – to get Alice the treatment she needs to get well.

Run for Alice Background

Alice is a bright, beautiful, and brave 9-year-old. In April 2022, her world was turned on its head. Alice was diagnosed with stage 4 high-risk neuroblastoma. Neuroblastoma is a rare, aggressive, and complex cancer of the nerve cells. Chances of relapse are high, and it carries low survival rates. We’re certain she will beat these odds but we need your help. You can donate now on the Go Fund Me page to help our beautiful Alice get the treatment she urgently needs.
We’re raising €550,000 to get Alice access to life-saving cancer drugs in a clinical trial at the Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) Cancer Centre in New York. We need to raise this amount by Christmas 2022 to ensure that she is enrolled in the next available trial group (early 2023).
This specialised treatment will help Alice Beat her Cancer. And your donations will help us get there.
On behalf of Alice and all of her loving family, we offer our heartfelt thanks in advance for your support.
