I run for fun. Some people HAVE to run. To flee persecution. To flee barbarity. Sometimes, the circumstances are imposed upon them by people far more powerful and nefarious. Other times, they are collateral damage in a war that has no end in sight. Families have been ripped apart in a power struggle that has belittled human lives for years. I'm one of the lucky ones, I can sit in my comfortable bed and write this in the safety of my home, certain that I'll get a good night's sleep after this. To level the playing field, just a little, I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2017 to raise much needed funds for Australia for UNHCR. Their work is really important, and I want to do what I can to help. But there is only so much I can do on my own. You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! 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. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me. Together we can help Australia for UNHCR create the world we want to see.
