You look like you've just run a marathon ...

Donate & share to show your support

On Sunday 22 September 2013, I will be running in the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival. I will do my best to complete the full marathon course of 42.195km, which will be run over the Harbour Bridge, around Sydney CBD and finishing at the Opera House steps...

I am excited to be taking part in the event and to be helping a great cause. I would really love to have your support, and if you can afford a small donation, it would be muchly appreciated!

This will be my first marathon and it will probably be my last, so please help out, if you can. Thank you for your support and helping to make a difference!
