My Story

Hi Friends, Most of you know I love running. Love you say? Yes I do. Why though, you ask? First and foremost it's my form of mediation, it helps me think through the good and bad stuff happening in my life and more often than not I find the solution while I'm running. On top of that it keeps my cardio up. I certainly believe that it takes a lot of motivation to get off your butt to run because no one is there to cheer you on except yourself - it sounds cheesy but your biggest supporter in life is yourself and I think running helps you do that. So many people have said stuff like "I can't run!" If you've got two functioning legs then you can run! Years ago… I thought to myself I'd love to do a half marathon. And I did. I've ran 6 of them! This year I knew I had to do this marathon. The mental prep started from the beginning of the year. I've training my ass off for the last few months and I've got 7 more weeks to go. I also think that it's awesome that I'm not only running to test myself mentally and physically but I'm running to fund raise for a good cause. I've chosen to support Australia Cancer Research Foundation. Because without research we are not able to find cures for cancer. It's simple. All you need to do is spare a few dollars for this awesome cause! Many thanks in advance! ALO

About my cause: Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF)

Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF) believe that a world without cancer is possible. It is a bold statement but one that we are committed to.

We can’t do this without you. Every day our supporters help to accelerate what can be achieved by giving Australia’s best scientists the technology they need to outsmart through better detection, prevention and treatment.

We are passionate about innovation and impact and believe accelerating cancer research is vital. Thanks to our generous and committed supporters we award grants between $1-10M each year for major equipment and technology. We are the only charity in Australia that does this, many fund the person (the researcher) but no-one else provides the cutting-edge equipment they need.

Together we can outsmart cancers, and we won’t stop until we do.

If you have any questions, call our fundraising team on 1300 884 988 or email Thank you!
