Eight months ago I decided that I was going to raise funds for the Leukaemia Foundation. Seven months ago, I decided that I was going to tick a bucket list item off and run a marathon. Those two ideas have merged.
I am doing this because my beautiful and talented son did not survive the effects of the treatment that is required to beat this disease. I am doing this because we were told by the experts that we were really 'unlucky' and that explanation will never be good enough. I am doing this because there has to be a more effective, less destructive treatment. I am doing this because Casper deserves more than just 12 years.
So I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2017 to raise much needed funds for Leukaemia Foundation of Australia. 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 Leukaemia Foundation of Australia create the world we want to see.
