My Story

I’m running the marathon in this year’s Blackmores Sydney Running Festival. I’ll be the guy pushing my nine-year-old son, Aedan, in his wheelchair on his WISH DAY! Aedan was just 26 weeks old when we realised things weren’t quite right for our boy. But despite Aedan now living with autism, seizures, low vision, being partially non-verbal and unable to walk, it hasn’t slowed our family down. Aedan’s wish involves the marathon because he loves feeling different sensations like the breeze on his face as I push him and the touch of high fives from other runners. For me, I love being Aeden's legs, helping push him along, seeing the smile on his face. Not only will we be making Aedan’s wish come true at the Sydney Running Festival, along with the rest of #TeamAedan we are raising vital funds for other kids to experience the powerful impact a wish journey can have. Thank you for supporting Aedan and kids like him on their wish journey.

About my cause: Make-A-Wish

Each day, six families around Australia find out their child has a critical illness. Make-A-Wish is on a mission to bring a unique wish journey to every one of these kids and teens.

A wish is vital. We carefully design each one to build anticipation and resilience to help a child in the fight for their health. Wishes give kids fighting critical illness kids hope for the future, strength to face the challenges of their illness and joy from their incredible wish experience.

Make-A-Wish receives no ongoing government funding, without your support, wishes simply wouldn’t be able to come true. Donate and fundraise today.
