My Story

I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival Half Marathon 2017 to raise much needed funds for the Lung Foundation Australia. In May I ran my first half marathon in over ten years and beat my personal goal. So I decided one half marathon this year wasn't quite enough and am training for my second one in September. The Lung Foundation work is really important to me, in particular after losing my sister Kerry to COPD - a chronic lung disease she had after many years of suffering from chronic asthma. How blessed we all are to take for granted the ease of breathing everyday! - I saw first hand for many years how she actually fought for each breath she took. So I would really appreciate your support to help me raise funds for this large organ we simply can't live without. As the half is 22kms my fundraising goal is $2200. I appreciate any amount you can spare and when I run on Sunday September 17 I know all your support and my special angel who is with me in everything I do will get me across the line. xx Shez

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!
