My Story

Hi Everyone!! :) On Sunday the 17th of September I am running in the Blackmores Half Marathon! That's 21.0975 km of sweat, powerade and lots of snacks :) I've been training now for 4 months. This year I am supporting the Cathy Freeman Foundation and need your help to make a difference! Ever since I read Cathy Freeman's autobiography in 2006 she has been an inspiration to me on and off the sporting field. Even now after her athletics career she continues to break down barriers and inspire people every day. The Cathy Freeman Foundation provides education to indigenous Australian children who live in remote areas of Australia. Devloping life skills and knowledge to indigenous communities to assist them now and in the future. In doing so the program assists these children to reach their full potential, closing educational gaps and providing brighter futures. With this in mind, my donation goal is $600 (thats about $28 per kilometre) !!! Any donation would be incredible with any amount helping make a difference to these children's lives :) THANK YOU SO MUCH!! Liv xxx

About my cause: Cathy Freeman Foundation

The Cathy Freeman Foundation programs help broaden horizons and inspire Indigenous students to experience their full potential in school.

The Foundation acknowledges the strength and wisdom that lies within remote Indigenous communities. Our work demands strong and trusting partnerships with community, elders and school leaders. We partner with communities for the long haul, as we journey through the complexities of the work required to create social change.

 

The vision of the Cathy Freeman Foundation is simple but ambitious: An Australia where Indigenous and non-Indigenous children have the same education standards and opportunities in life.
