Touched by the support! ❤ 04/06/21I'm so grateful for all the encouragement and support I've received verbally in the first week of the mission.
The start of the journey! ❤ 01/06/21In 2019, it had been 6 years since I'd run the NYC Marathon for the Heart Foundation and although I'd done some smaller fund-raising events in that time, I felt it was again time to commit to something big for the Heart Foundation.
Mission 231 ❤ 31/05/21
I’ve taken on a challenge to Do it for Heart!
Heart disease remains Australia’s biggest killer, claiming 48 lives every day.
Stop and think about that statistic for a moment.
THAT IS 2 LIVES EVERY HOUR!
I am a Personal Trainer and keen runner who is passionate about fitness and health.
I have lost family and friends to Heart Disease, and know many others too, who have lost loved ones to Australia's Biggest Killer.
This is why I started "Running With Heart" back in 2010, raising money and awareness for the Heart Foundation, whilst training for and running my first half marathon. Since then I've run various half and full marathons for the Heart Foundation including the NYC Marathon in 2013.
But NOW it is time for something EPIC! Something that is way outside my comfort zone and that pushes me to the edge of my endurance.
I'm taking on the challenge of the Sonder Monster in 2022. That is, running the entire length of the Larapinta Trail in the Northern Territory, Australia. All 231km of it. And in less than 60 hours.
Every km is going to be Running With Heart, raising money and awareness for the Heart Foundation.
And I would like you to support me please.
