Join Gut Cancer Foundation

Gut Cancer Foundation are proud to be a charity partner for the 2023 Rotorua Marathon! Make your run count and sign up to join our team for this iconic event and you can help to improve survival rates and life expectancy for New Zealanders impacted by gut cancers.

Over 5400 New Zealanders are diagnosed with a gut cancer or cancer of the digestive system every year and sadly, over half of those diagnosed will not survive beyond 5 years. Gut cancers include oesophageal, stomach, liver, pancreatic, gallbladder and bowel cancer. Urgent funding is needed to help fund life saving clinical research and education campaigns to improve outcomes for those diagnosed with or at risk from gut cancers.

Setup your own online fundraising page for the 2023 Rotorua Marathon and with your support, we can give New Zealanders with gut cancers access to new treatments sooner and support researchers to discover better ways to detect, diagnose and treat gut cancers. We want to ensure the causes and symptoms of gut cancers are better understood so people seek help sooner. Sign up today and together, let’s kick cancer in the guts!
