Over a year ago, I ran my first half marathon. It was a real challenge and an incredible experience. Part of the reason I enjoyed it so much was the genuine feeling of running for a good cause. I raised over $2000 and I am hoping to match that this year as I tackle the Blackmores Half Marathon in September.
I am running with CanToo, an amazing organisation that provides much needed grants to the 'little guys' of cancer research. CanToo has partnered with Cure Cancer Australia and the Cancer Council and has raised over $18 million since 2005.
1 in 3 women and 1 in 2 men will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. That statistic seems too awful to believe. In 2012, I lost my grandma to Mesothelioma, a relatively rare form of lung cancer caused by exposure to asbestos in her formative years. Stories like this are all too common, and chances are that everyone reading this will know someone who has been affected.
I know there is so much more to do, but every little bit counts.
A big thank you to My Sponsors
The real heroes who are kindly supporting me achieve my goal.
