Enjoy the carnival feel of the Emer Casey Fun Run, while raising funds for ovarian cancer research at the Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre.
The event is named after Emer Casey, a native of County Cork in Ireland. Emer's life was cut short in 2006 when she was diagnosed with ovarian/uterine cancer at the age of 27. She died just 3 and a half months later, 4 days after her 28th birthday. Her death had a profound effect on those who knew her, and they set up the Emer Casey Foundation in her honour.
