My Story

It's crazy how much we take for granted living in Australia, especially living in well-to-do coastal cities, like Wollongong. As a foodie, I love enjoying great Australian produce and treating myself to delicious delicacies. But I don't often stop to think about where my food came from, nor at what cost. While I have so much food and water at my disposal, there are farming families in rural and remote Australia doing it really tough--with some even forced to shoot their livestock simply because they don't have enough food or water to feed them. This is heart-breaking. So, I want to put my thoughts (and prayers!) into action in a small way by running a HALF MARATHON at the Blackmore's Running Festival and raising funds for Australian farming families affected by drought. I'm also continuing to pray that God will send much needed rain to the drought-stricken places in Australia, and relief and comfort for farming families. You too can help by making a small donation on my page. Even the smallest amount will make a big difference. Australian Red Cross will commit 100% of every dollar donated here to help farming families and communities. 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. xx

About my cause: Australian Red Cross

Red Cross is there for people in need, no matter who you are, no matter where you live.

The Red Cross Red Crescent Movement helps tens of millions of people around the world each year and here at Australian Red Cross, we care for local communities in Australia and further afield.

By running for Red Cross and raising funds, or simply donating, you’ll be bringing hope to people and communities facing the toughest times of their lives:

• $42 will help provide three months of safe drinking water from a water purification plant for two people following an emergency in our region

• $50 will help family members separated by war, conflict and disasters to find each other again. Every year thousands of families lose touch with loved ones caught up in areas of conflict or disaster. Through our worldwide tracing network, Red Cross works to re-establish that contact, by sending messages and clarifying the fate of missing loved ones

• $150 can help recruit, train and retain an emergency services volunteer to help in evacuation centres, do door to door checks, help out in community events after a disaster

• $2500 can help run an evacuation centre providing a safe place for people who have nowhere else to go during a flood, fire or cyclone
