BROTHERS Richard and Daniel Whitehead will help try to find a cure for brain cancer when they run the City2Surf on Sunday.
The Whitehead brothers, who are directors of Milbrook Homes in Norwest Business Park, have raised $100,000 for Cure Brain Cancer Foundation as part of their City2Surf fundraising efforts.
They decided to raise money for brain cancer as their mother, Sandi, was diagnosed with the disease a few months ago.
Richard said City2Surf is a great way to raise much-needed funding for charities.
“I have participated in the City2Surf for many years and raised thousands of dollars for high-profile charities, including Humpty Dumpty Foundation and Bear Cottage,” he said.
“it was only fitting to focus our attention this year to Cure Brain Cancer Foundation following mum’s recent diagnosis with the terrible disease.”
Daniel thanked the community for supporting their fundraising efforts.
“Several people from the Milbrook Homes team will be joining us on our running journey,” he said.
“Family, friends, clients and work colleagues have all rallied behind us to reach our target of $100,000.
“The support has been incredibly humbling.”
Cure Brain Cancer Foundation sports fundraising manager Julie-Anne Slatter thanked the community for their support.
“We couldn’t do it without the support of families like these, and we’ll keep fighting on behalf of people like Sandi to change outcomes for people impacted by brain cancer.”
