On Sunday 2nd June, Wollongong’s Nicholas Dale will be taking on Stadium Stomp’s challenging 6,700-stair course at the Sydney Cricket Ground. Not just for fun and fitness, but also to raise funds and awareness for the Leukaemia Foundation, a cause very close to his heart.
At just 18 years of age, Nicholas was diagnosed with ALCL Non Hodgins Lymphoma in 2016 and underwent various types of chemotherapy. In June 2016 he had a bone marrow transplant and 109 days later was released after complications with the transplant.
2017 was a year of recovery for Nicholas and his focus now is on getting back to being healthy, enjoying life and giving back. During his treatment time, Nicholas and his family stayed at the Leukaemia Foundation’s accommodation in Sydney which kept his entire family together during the tough time as well as ensured his family didn’t have the extra financial stress and burden. Nicholas also attributes the Leukaemia Foundation for supporting him to get back on his feet which is why this cause is so close to him and why he wants to now helps others in a similar position and who are affected by the disease.
Nicholas is now cancer free and health and fitness are very important to him. He will be participating in Stadium Stomp at Sydney’s iconic SCG for the second year in a row on Sunday 2nd June.
You can join Nicholas and help support the important work the Leukaemia Foundation does by registering for Stadium and choosing to fundraise as part of the experience.
