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

Anyone can get lung disease. It affects 1 in 4 Australians and is the second leading cause of death.

Lung Foundation Australia is the only charity in Australia providing support and a voice for people with lung disease, their families, carers, health professionals and the general community. 

We fund life-changing research and facilitate early detection by supporting best practice clinical management and delivering lung health programs. We work to empower those with lung disease to take the important steps they can to enjoy a better quality of life by understanding and managing their disease. 

Lung Foundation Australia works across all areas of lung disease, with a particular focus on Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), lung cancer and rare lung diseases including Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis (IPF), Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH), bronchiectasis and rare lung disease in children.  

We offer a range of support and services to help people to manage their lung condition and improve their lung health and wellbeing. Your generous donations ensure we can continue to: 

- Drive community awareness about lung health

- Fund word class research

- Advocate for people with a lung condition

- Provide information and support for patients

- Facilitate best-practice training and education for health professionals.

Lung Foundation Australia relies on funding from individuals, families, businesses and industry organisations and are deeply appreciated of this generosity. To increase our support for research, patients and advocacy, it is critical we continue to build our capacity to raise further funds in the community. 

Fundraise by creating your own fundraising challenge. Fundraising can be a lot of fun and a great way to get the community together for a purpose. 


Thank you for your kind support.
