My Story

Some of you might already know that I decided to go that crazy path and sweat it out at the Full 42.2km Marathon on the 17th of September at the Sydney Running Festival 2017. I am aiming for sub 3:55h. So far it has been a very hard road juggeling single parenthood and organising training before or after work and the last 3 month were dedicated to hard training, early wake up calls, also unwillingly wake up calls in the middle of the night, loads of protein shakes and especially will power and determination to get this done. A big thanks to all my friends who supported me with babysitting duties and also mental support. As a bonus I would like to raise much needed funds for the Australian Cancer Research Foundation (ACRF). This is close to my heart with loads of friends and family battling this disease. But this is especially for my beloved mum, who is fighting strong for the last 18years to overcome her cancer. She is the strongest person on this planet and I will be running for her and will have her with me on every step of the 42.2km. You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! I thank you so much for your generosity and support- it means a lot to me. You can also support me by encouraging others to get involved, too. Please email the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media.

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.
