My Story

I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2018 to raise much needed funds for Legacy New South Wales. 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 Legacy New South Wales create the world we want to see.

About my cause: Legacy New South Wales

Legacy is a charity providing services to Australian families suffering after the injury or death of a spouse or parent, during or after their defence force service. We currently care for around 60,000 beneficiaries, with 96% of them being elderly widows throughout Australia.

Legacy is a voluntary organisation supported by veterans, servicemen and women, and volunteers drawn from all walks of life. Our support and services now extend to include the dependants of members of today's Australian Defence Force who lose their lives or their health as a result of their military service.

Legacy is dedicated to enhancing the lives and opportunities of our families through innovative and practical programs aimed at:

The protection of individuals and families basic needs; 
Advocating for their entitlements, rights and benefits;
Assisting families through bereavement; and
Helping people thrive, despite their adversity and loss.

There are over 4,000 active volunteers around Australia who act as mentors to the widows and their families and who ensure Legacy’s promise to care for the families of deceased veterans is kept.
