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 is a cancer charity that focuses exclusively on giving Australia’s best scientists the technology they need to end cancer.
Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, we are funding better ways of detecting, preventing and treating all types of cancer.

ACRF support helps to improve researcher’s understanding of cancer and leads to life-saving breakthroughs. In the past, we have seed-funded important discoveries such as the development of the HPV cancer vaccine.

What makes ACRF unique?
The government and other cancer charities are stretched thin with priorities that demand both their attention and their dollars, which leaves behind a significant gap in funding. ACRF is filling the gap that no other organisation fills.

Each year, ACRF awards competitive grants between $1-10M for major core equipment and infrastructure which is difficult to obtain from other funding sources.

ACRF is passionate about innovation and impact. To ensure we support only the most promising projects, our grants are awarded based on the advice of a panel of leading scientists. Since 1984, ACRF has proudly funded 65 ground-breaking cancer research projects across Australia, totalling $129.2M.

When you support ACRF, you have the power to give the next patient who is diagnosed with cancer a better chance of survival. We are incredibly grateful to our supporters for making cancer research progress possible.
