Put your lockdown fitness to the test this January and in doing so help fight cancer.
The Lighthouse Classic will take place for the first time this year with a proposed 12km route from Urquhart Bluff, touching the Aireys Inlet lighthouse and returning. Participants can walk or run along the beautiful Great Ocean Road walk or if you are elsewhere, you too can be part of this event. Simply choose your own walk, maybe even find a lighthouse, anytime during the month of January.
Anglesea resident Janet Jones is encouraging people to put their runners on for the Lighthouse Classic this January to shed new light on what causes cancer and how it can be treated more effectively.
The idea of the Lighthouse Classic is to touch a lighthouse in honour of someone who has been touched by cancer but if you’re not near a lighthouse, you’re still helping to shed light on cancer by taking part.”
Janet has her own cancer story. As someone who has faced three separate battles with cancer over a period of 33 years, Janet is passionate about identifying causes for cancer and why some human cells become cancerous.
“I’ve managed to conquer two different cancers on two different occasions and will fight it again a third time. But the Lighthouse Classic is not just about my cancer, it’s about trying to raise funds so we can find out why people get cancer, how we can stop it and how we can improve the treatment,” she said.
