My Story

I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2017 to raise much needed funds for Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children. 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 Royal Institute for Deaf and Blind Children create the world we want to see.

About my team: 3rd Father and Son Charity Run

The Father and Son charity run is back, it is the third year the charity run has been running. A bit late this year, but it is always better late than never. A little of flashback of previous years. Year 2015, USD $1258 for Indonesia`s underprivileged children (HORE-House of Reading) Year in 2016 accumulation of AUD $ 2355 for Sydney Children Hospital Last year they did 2x 10Ks, 2x 9Ks, 2x Full marathons, and 1x ultra 100K. This year the run series will feature 2x 4k, 2x5k 4x10k, 2x Half marathons and 1x Full marathon, with the total distance of 152km, thus the target of $1520. While last year's charity run was to mark their emmigration to Australia, this year charity run will mark a wonderful year of Sydney life, and they are running Full Team as a family. Exelina has debuted her first official run on her birthday last July by running 5km on her 5th birthday. A tradition called HBR (Happy Birthday Run). This year Eugene has been participating in running events more than his father and ever. Not all in smooth rails, for once he stumbled at the start and (minorly) injured his shoulder. But he is learning everything happens for a greater cause. The Father will do the marathons with not too much preparation, but with the constant spirit of their charity work. While the son will give it a try for his first ever half marathon distance. Thus they all run, sweat, loved ones watch, and simply donate. Family members, friends, colleagues are encouraged to donate AUD $ 10 for every Km that they run, thus the target of 152 Km x10 =AUD $1520 Here are the details of The Father and Son charity run this year, in term of who ran and distance covered. Greater Sydney 10k. May 6, 2017 Son 10K (completed) PB 48m:39s Sydney Harbour 10k and 5k.

Their work is really important, and we want to do what we can to help. 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 very much for all your constant support, year to year, to make this endure, and let the good rool on!
