This year marks Ian Billett’s third year participating
in Sydney’s iconic City2Surf fun run while also fundraising for the Leukaemia
In memory and in honour of his late wife
Kelly, Ian’s tradition is to run the City2Surf in a bold purple tutu which
always gains lots of attention and creates fun. This year, he will be taking
his outfit to the next level by buttoning up his a three-piece suit as well as
his usual tutu!
Ian’s wife Kelly was diagnosed with Hodgkin
lymphoma and sadly passed away in 2015, you can read more about Ian and Kelly
Also for the first time this year, Ian will
be taking part in City2Surf as a Charity Superstar. As a
charity superstar, your entry fee is free, you receive your name on the running
bib plus a limited edition medal and your very own start area in the race.
Plus this year, we are extremely grateful
to Labourpower who have generously
sponsored a VIP beach marquee exclusively for Leukaemia Foundation’s Charity
Superstars and other top fundraisers.
“I’m so excited about this year’s City2Surf and being a Charity
Superstar! It’s going to be amazing and I can’t wait to be in the marquee after
the event sharing stories with everyone over some food and drinks. I highly
encourage everyone to be a Charity Superstar!” Ian said.
All you have to do to qualify as a Charity Superstar is pledge to
raise $1000, but you better be quick as there are only 12 spots left! You can
sign up here.
“Over the years I’ve noticed more people are
doing the City2Surf for a bit of fun. Other than the serious runners at the
front, there are more people coming out and giving it a go as a bucket list
thing,” Ian explained.
City2Surf is the world’s largest fun run
and is on Sunday 13 August starting in Sydney’s Hyde Park. To be a part of this
incredible event, sign up and get
fundraising to beat blood cancer today!
