TSC Heroes put their bodies to the test and raise money for families living with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC).

While most major events have been postponed during this unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic you can still sign up to be a TSC Hero and support TSA with a virtual fun run or fitness challenge. Just fill out the below sign up form and we’ll help you make it happen.

Alternatively, visit mycause to set up your online fundraising page.

The TSC Heroes team was established in 2014 by Jeff and Manoela Place, whose first daughter Zarah has TSC. Along with their family and friends, they raised $44,667 through their efforts at the Challenge Forster triathlon.

Over the last 5 years, the TSC Heroes team has grown to include all sorts of sporting and competitive challenges. Sydney’s iconic City2Surf run, a marathon in the Clare Valley, the Kokoda Trek, Bridge2Brisbane and more. If you’re looking for a fitness and fundraising challenge, fill in the below form and we will contact you with more information about this special team.

In 2016 we achieved our goal to bring the TSC Heroes total to $100,000 raised for families living with Tuberous Sclerosis. This was made possible by the fantastic Ironman 70.3 Western Sydney TSC Heroes team who raised over $33,000.

I’m keen, sign me up!

We're excited to have you join the team. We'll be in touch soon!
