My Story

I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2017 to raise much needed funds for Taronga Conservation Society 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 Taronga Conservation Society Australia create the world we want to see.

About my cause: Taronga Conservation Society Australia

Taronga is For the Wild. We believe we all have a responsibility to make sure that animals don't just survive, but thrive. To make that happen, there's just one species that has to lead the way - Ours. 

Run for the Wild in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival and support Marine Turtles!

Blackmores Sydney Running Festival is the only competitive run in Sydney which crosses the Harbour – but how many Sydney-siders would say they really know what is happening in their neighbourhood water ecosystem?

Australians have a special connection with the ocean, from surf beaches and rocky shores to spectacular coral reefs. Over a million different species share our oceans but our own security, economy and survival are at risk when oceans aren’t healthy. A third of all marine turtles are estimated to have eaten plastic. At Taronga’s Wildlife Hospital, we’ve seen over 350 marine turtles brought in since 1984, many with plastic related illness when they mistake plastic bags for jellyfish. 

Join Team Taronga in BSRF on Sunday 17th September and help protect the ancient Marine Turtle. Turtles need our help to raise awareness about plastic - in Australia alone we use more than 10 million single-use bags every day. Across a year, 100 million of these bags end up in our waste stream. 

If you’re running in BSRF this year, you can make a real difference for Marine Turtles and our Harbour’s marine health by joining Team Taronga and fundraising for the wild.

At the Zoo we reward fundraising efforts!

Unleash the beast! On your first $50 we will send you the Team Taronga running singlet and cap for race day and training.

Enjoy the Zoo. Once you reach $250, we’ll send you a family pass the Zoo.

Cuddle up! At $500, we’ll send you a plush toy.

Meet and greet! Come and meet Taronga’s incredible animals in an exclusive behind the scenes experience when you raise $1,000.
