About Event

The Wellness Walk & Research Run on Sunday, 17 September 2017 is an annual 5km run or walk and 10km fun run at La Trobe University in Melbourne, Victoria to raise awareness and vital funds for cancer research and wellness program at the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Wellness & Research Centre (ONJ Centre).

The walk will be led by Olivia Newton-John with the support of other profile ambassadors. Now in its fifth year, the Wellness Walk and Research Run is the only one of its kind in the northern suburbs of Melbourne. The funds raised from this event will support patients through treatment and recovery by funding research breakthroughs and provide access to world-leading wellness and supportive care programs.

The ONJ Centre supports patients in body, mind and spirit by providing leading medical treatment complimented by wellness programs. Every day our researchers and clinicians are developing and trialling breakthrough therapies so patients can live better with cancer and defeat it.
