My Story

I am running the Sydney Marathon in September! My goal is to challenge myself to build the mental strength I know both my grandparents had when they were diagnosed with terminal lung disease (despite not having smoked cigarettes a single day in their life). They both requested, when they passed away, for no flowers but instead for donations to the Lung Foundation Australia so that research can continue into preventing lung diseases. My grandfather was a gold medalist for New Zealand in the Commonwealth Games and was inducted to the New Zealand Hall of Fame earlier this year! My Grandmother has always been so supportive of any sporting achievement! What better way to support the lung foundation than with a sporting even like a marathon! It is a cause that is really close to my heart so any contribution helps to make a difference to the life of someone else living with lung disease. Thank you for your generosity and every cent donated with help get me through that 42.195km course!

About my cause: Lung Foundation Australia

For the last 25 years, we’ve supported all aspects of lung disease - from COPD to lung cancer to rarer lung diseases such as pulmonary fibrosis. Your generous donations ensure we can continue to:

• Promote lung health and early diagnosis of lung disease

• Support those with lung disease and their careers

• Advocate for equitable access to evidence-based care

• Drive world class research and

• Provide evidence-based clinical support and education. 

Lung Foundation Australia receives no ongoing government funding and it is a challenging task to raise the funds needed to support all of what we do. We therefore rely on your support and you can help us.

We all know someone afflicted with lung disease, let's help raise funds so we can support them as well as invest in research so that others don't suffer in the future.

Thank you for your kind support!
