The NeuroSurgical Research Foundation is very proud to announce that our dedicated fundraisers have raised an incredible $32,500 for neurosurgical research in the City to Bay Fun Run.

This year the physical City to Bay returned after a 2 year hiatus due to Covid and no amount of cold, wind or rain could dampen the incredible atmosphere!

It was indeed a soggy start, with our dedicated volunteers setting up while getting rained on in the dark at 5:15am. Contingency plans had to be made when a huge gust of wind decided to take off with one of the NRF tents! Nothing could dampen our spirits though and it wasn’t long before our very first NRF Team Neuro racer and brain tumour researcher Dr Guilermo Gomez completed the half marathon (21.1km) in an impressive 1:31:51!

Altogether 51 individuals and teams joined NRF Team Neuro, many to remember loved ones lost to diseases such as brain cancer, childhood brain swelling, and traumatic brain injury.

With the DIY race option available again this year we had racers join us from all around Australia, and even as far as Paris!
