Thanks to the GROWing GOFERS from Brown-Forman who blitzed the 2014 Colour Run in Sydney and raised $2K for gynae cancer research.
If you are considering running (or walking) in a challenge event in your area and also want to support gynae cancer research and raise awareness about gynae cancer, why not fundraise for GO for Gynae at the same time?
GO for Gynae (ANZGOG) is registered as a charity with the two major online event fundraising platforms Everyday Hero and GO Fundraise which both feature a range of events you can chose from or or check out the Australian Running Calendar for an event in your city.
Only 6 easy steps:
1 | Click on the link to the Charity Run you want to participate in.
2 | Register your interest to participate in the event.
3 | Name ‘ANZGOG‘ as your charity of choice.
4 | Create your own supporter/Fundraising page. You can choose a fundraising goal of $500, $1000 or $2000 – whatever you feel comfortable with.
5 | Email your Supporter Page to friends, colleagues & family asking for their support to help you reach your goal.
6 | Download a training guide from the event’s official website and start your journey to a Fitter, Healthier and More Inspirational you!
If you raise over $100 you will also receive a GO for Gynae supporter t-shirt to wear on the day of your run.
Why not get a corporate team together and participate in a challenge event? The difference you make will be amplified by forming your team, and you can motivate each other while you train and fundraise.

Pennie Styoles, a long standing member of ANZGOG’s Consumer & Community Committee, participated in Run Melbourne on 27 July 2014.
Here’s what Pennie says about participating in the event for GO for Gynae “I am inspired by the work of ANZGOG, the Australia New Zealand Gynaecological Oncology Group. They are a group of physicians, surgeons, nurses and other clinicians who are passionate about clinical trials to find better treatments for women’s (‘below the belt’) cancers. I had a gynaecological cancer nearly 30 years ago, and I can see the incredible advances in treatment that have occurred since then and I want the advances to keep advancing!”
