My Story

I am taking part in the Blackmore's Sydney Running Festival 2017 to raise money for the Sisters of the Good Samaritan. This year is a milestone achievement as they celebrate their 160th Anniversary in Australia. Funds raised will go to the Good Sams Foundation to support women and children who are homeless, victims of domestic violence, indigenous people, asylum seekers and refugees, victims of human trafficking and secondary students. Help me to raise funds for THE GOOD SAMARITAN INN, in Melbourne which provides short term emergency accommodation for women and children escaping domestic violence. You can help, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! Even $25 makes a difference. Donating is easy and only takes a minute: 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. Supporting these ministries will be very much appreciated by many. Thanks! Marg

About my cause: Good Sams

The Sisters of the Good Samaritan (known affectionately as the Good Sams) were Australia’s first ‘home grown’ order of religious women, established in Sydney in 1857 by Archbishop Bede Polding. The Sisters take their name and inspiration from the Parable of the Good Samaritan. They share a commitment to be ‘neighbour’ to those in need, with a special focus on assisting vulnerable women and children.

The Sisters’ first home in Pitt Street Sydney was demolished in 1901 to make way for the construction of Sydney’s Central Railway Station. Historic Toxteth House at Glebe Point became their new residence. Now, after more 150 years serving the poor and needy, the Sisters original mission continues. Working with their partners in ministry, the Sisters bring compassion and justice to an expanding global neighbourhood.
