Help make Run 4 Jess a success

For many years Steve Clark with the help of his mother Lynette Clark has organised the Run 4 Jess appeal in memory of his wife Jess Clark, who passed away in 2013.

Run 4 Jess aims to raise funds for the Westmead Hospital Foundation (WHF) in support of Westmead Hospital’s oncology ward.

After Jess passed away, Steve and Lynette encouraged family and friends to make a donation to the ward. Soon after, Girraween Athletics Club kindly offered to hold a fun run to help raise even more funds.

“This activity is a way to bring people together who loved and valued Jess as well as raise money for cancer research,” Steve said.

“The oncology ward team treated Jess like family. They were very compassionate and celebrate her successes and mourned when we lost her."
