Jason O'Connell's Triple Event Fundraiser for Breakthrough Cancer Research

Jason O'Connell's Triple Event Fundraiser for Breakthrough Cancer Research

1st October 2023 - 30th November 2024


I am taking on 3 incredible challenges to raise funds for Breakthrough Cancer Research.

In October 2023 I will take on the Dublin City Marathon

In April 2024 I will do the London City Marathon

And in November 2024 I will complete my challenge with the NYC Marathon!

Breakthrough Cancer Research has already and is continuing to make a huge difference. More and more people are now surviving cancer than ever before. Yet, sadly, there are still some cancers that have not seen such advances and the long term survival rates remain tragically low.  The team at Breakthrough are on a mission to change this. They want to  disrupt cancer's future and save lives, one breakthrough at a time.  

The funds raised from my triple challenge  will fund world class researchers as they tackle the most difficult to cure cancers, to deliver better futures sooner.

They continue to focus their  research on developing treatments for poor prognosis and incurable cancers, and over the last number of years they have brought eight cancer treatments from the laboratory to clinical trial. This includes the recently opened trial for patients with chemo resistant oesophageal cancer, the ongoing trial for patients with basal cell carcinomas and recent trials for colorectal cancer and malignant melanoma.
