My Story

Hello dear family and friends I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2017 to raise much needed funds for Centacare Industries. See below for information about this. Centacare Industries is a very worthy cause within CatholicCare Sydney. But first - more about me: Can you believe it??? - me! in a running festival! I'm breaking out my 17 year old walking shoes (not kidding - I bought them when William was born) and getting up early (ugh) and walking (double ugh) for - wait for it - 3.5km (ugh, ugh, ugh!) for the benefit of others. I'm worn out already. 3.5km!!! that's 3500 meters! That's (the way I walk) about 25,000 steps!!! It's huge!!!! Please sponsor me! If you sponsor me, I will send you in the moment text messages alerting you to my progress! I will send you screen shots of the blue dot on my i-phone map showing you where I am at course milestones! I will send you (after I've recovered) a written testimonial of the entire story! But only if you sponsor me! The second highest sponsor will receive a phone call from me mid-event!!! The person who sponsors me the most has the choice of two phone calls, or complete silence from me on the day!!!! I'll take fitness tips from all the fit-types amongst you. I acknowledge my prep time is limited, but it should be just enough time to get me in tip-top shape for the 3.5km gruelling ordeal. Also - it's not on a completely flat course!!!!

About my cause: Centacare Industries

Centacare Industries’ Team Centacare is running to support the 60 adults with disabilities who work at Centacare Industries Belmore. Centacare employees provide gardening, packing, delivery and document shredding to businesses throughout Sydney.

This inspiring group of people are not letting disability hold them back from living full and productive lives, or from joining the Sydney Running Festival. 

Centacare Industries needs your support to fund skills training so our employees can grow and thrive.
