Cooks River Fun Run is proud to be supporting Bowel Cancer Australia!

$5 of every registration will be donated to this vital cause and will help to save lives and improve the health and wellbeing of people living with bowel cancer. Bowel Cancer and their giant inflatable bowel will be on site at the Fun Run!

So come say hello and see what bowels look like, from the inside out.
