My Story

BIO - My name is ' Murray Mantaray'! Murray Mantaray was a name made famous for previous aqua adventures in oceans and swimming pools up and down the east coast of Australia. - However as Kevin Costner noted in the movie Waterworld (1995) “Dry Land is not a Myth” and it’s time for the Mantaray to migrate to a land challenge in support of those who need it. FAST 5 FACTS - I’m 6 foot 6 (198cms) and weigh 120kgs. - I have never competed in a half-marathon. - I have an addiction to chocolates and sweets (not friends to the long distance runner). - Nicknames include Big Dog, Big Horse, Big Rig, Big Cat etc… none of these are conducive to running a half-marathon. - I’m open to other challenges to be worthy of a donation. WHY RUN A HALF MARATHON? A number of people around my life have had experiences with Breast Cancer and I wanted to acknowledge the mental, physical and emotional strength they have displayed, whilst also demonstrating my support by raising some much needed funds for Breast Cancer Network Australia. Therefore, I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2017. The work of Breast Cancer Network Australia 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 Breast Cancer Network Australia create the world we want to see. SUPERCARS FAMILY Once my donation target is reached I pledge to get a massage / pamper package for one of our own who is a key driver for the Murray Mantaray hitting the pavement! The very best regards, Murray Mantaray

BCNA is the peak national organisation for Australians affected by breast cancer, and consists of a network of more than 120,000 members and 300 Member Groups. More than 90 per cent of our members have had a diagnosis of breast cancer, and the remaining members have had a personal experience with breast cancer through a family member or friend.

We are represented by the Pink Lady silhouette, symbolic of our focus on the women diagnosed with breast cancer and all those around her.
