Ladies & Gents, 

 

You may have arrived on this page to read more, to kindly donate, or you may have accidentally clicked the link as you laughed out loud at my email or social media post : Mandy, Running and 23km - I agree, it's a hilarious thought.   For whichever reason, thank you for visiting my fundraising page. 

The reason I am doing this is pretty straightforward.  Selfishly, I hope to improve my fitness levels and meet new people in my (not so) 'new' home-town of Melbourne.  Above that and more importantly I want to support a fantastic cause in 'Can Too' (whom you can read more about on this website).  I first ran with Can Too in 2009, when I had literally never run more than 50metres without stopping, and I completed 3 half marathons that year.  At that stage I ran to honour the memory of my courageous Aunty Anne who had lost her battle with cancer in 2005.  

Fast forward 7 years and, in all honesty, I have not run much since.  In that time,  I have encountered a number of individuals (read: far too many) who too have battled the dreaded C - all fighters - some of whom are here today and others who are not.  I am not here to 'pull at your heart-strings', but I am here (and running) to acknowledge that there is more that needs to be done, and that providing grants to young, up & coming scientists via Can Too and 'Cure Cancer Australia' is a great and worthy start.  

If you've already donated to cancer research, or many other worthy causes, then consider sponsoring me for the sheer fact that I am going from '0' to 23km in just under 14 weeks, was unsure whether I wanted to vomit or cry after the first training session last week, and above all - I promise to cross that finish line (running, walking, hobbling or crawling) for a worthy cause and with a number of brave people, including my Aunty Anne, in my heart and mind.

 

Dig deep please.  I'll keep you posted on the hilarity, pain and (hopefully) achievement! xx

A big thank you to My Sponsors

The real heroes who are kindly supporting me achieve my goal.
