CMRI - 3 Peaks NSW 2022

What is this about?

I signed up for my first fundraising challenge with CMRI! On November 12th I’ll be hiking 18km to summit Mount Kosciuszko (Australia’s highest mountain) Etheridge Ridge & Rams Head North. 

But before that, and to spice up the challenge, I will be running the City2Surf popular run in Sydney covering 14km (14th August) as well as the Sydney Marathon (18th September).

With every step I take as part of the 3 Peaks challenge, I’ll be raising vital funds for research to find better treatments and cures for children's genetic diseases, including cancer.

Along the way (>550km), I’m aiming to raise $3000, but I need your help. Will you support my fundraising efforts by donating to my page here? Every dollar raised goes to CMRI. Thank you for your support!

My Updates

35km of pain

Wednesday 3rd Aug

Last Sunday I "run" 35km in The Bloody Long Walk!

Through the blisters, sweat and aching legs, this 35km was for kids and adults affected by mitochondrial disease, a debilitating genetic disease that causes organ dysfunction and failure.

And OFC, was a good training for what it is coming soon! Still some work to do...

Hard training in the treadmill

Monday 4th Jul
As the rain decided to come back to Sydney, I had to change my training plans... 1/2 marathon in the traidmill! It was hard, boring and painfull, but made it!

Sunday Fun Day

Sunday 19th Jun

I just started my training! > 550km to run before 12th November! When the 3-peaks challenge will take place! 

Follow my preparation here!

Today: 14km run at Centennial Park (Sydney)

Who am I?

Sunday 19th Jun

My name is Anna! I am originally from Spain, but I have been living in The Netherlands for six years doing my PhD on molecular cancer biology. I recently moved to Sydney to continue my career as a scientist, working at the Children Medical Research Institute (CMRI) on cancer research. 

I love being outdoors, either in the sea side or in the mountains. You will likely find me on a climbing wall, biking or running. 

And I am so ready to start a new challenge!

Thank you to my Sponsors
