Running for #TeamTOGA
What is #TeamTOGA?
#TeamTOGA is a group of individuals who walk or run to raise money for lung cancer and mesothelioma research by participating in marathons or walking events and collecting donations and sponsors through their own personal fundraising page created by TOGA.
#TeamTOGA is reassembling for the 2022 Sun Herald City2Surf, but this year it will be bigger, better with wider reach and most importantly, an opportunity for some face to face fun, and to smash last year’s fundraising efforts with an ambitious target of $40,000 across 3 events.
This year anyone who raises >$500 will receive a free TOGA t-shirt for the event day.
T-shirts are also available for purchase from approximately end May.
They will be around $40 and available at the TOGA scientific meeting in Swissotel Sydney July 21-22.
