Tennis Marathon to shine a light on rare diseases
Nearly two million Australians are living with a rare disease – one and a half times the number of Australians with diabetes!
In some cases, there are only two or three Australians with the same rare disease – can you image how isolating that must feel?
Rare diseases don’t get the research dollars, the publicity or the awareness campaigns of the mainstream diseases – help us change that!
WHAT WE’LL DO
Four of us will be taking to the tennis court to play for more than 60 consecutive hours in an attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the longest doubles tennis marathon (the current world record stands at 60 hours, 24 minutes and 14 seconds…even the Woodies haven’t played for this long!).
All the money we raise is going to Rare Voices Australia – who do amazing work with limited resources to fight for a healthcare system which supports Australians with rare diseases.
WHEN AND WHERE
Commencing 7am on International Rare Disease Day: 28 February 2019
Venue: Melbourne Park Tennis Centre (home of the Australian Open!)
