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 throughout Australia in 2021.
Simply walk or run along the beautiful Great Ocean Road to the Aireys Inlet Lighthouse or choose your own local destination, maybe even a lighthouse, anytime during the month of January.
A large group of participants are expected to join in with the proposed 12km return route from Urquhart Bluff, to Aireys Inlet Lighthouse on the beautiful Great Ocean Road.
Event organiser and 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.
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.
Janet is inviting participants, however old, to join the Classic and touch a local landmark, in honour of someone they know who has been touched by cancer. There will be a large group of walkers/runners joining the Classic from Urquarts Bluff to Aireys Lighthouse. If you live in the region, join us on this scenic track. Your involvement will help spread the message and raise much needed funds!
