My Story

As some of you may know I achieved one of my long standing bucket list goals of running a marathon during my 6 month sabbatical. I had three objectives from the challenge, to a achieve a certain time, not to walk and to cross the finish line saying “that was great, which marathon next”. Like the target driven individual I know I am, I achieved two of the three objectives and I have been bitten by the marathon bug so I’m going again a week on Sunday to achieve the third objective. This time I am reaching out to you all to ask you to support me raising funds for Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia, I rarely ask for support (generally every 3 years or so) so I would really appreciate if you dig deep and give me a huge goal to achieve. Prostate Cancer is the mostly commonly diagnosed cancer in men, with 1 in 8 men affected by this insidious disease. With your help we can reduce the impact of prostate cancer on Australian men, their partners and families. If I don’t achieve my third objective I will double what I raise so it will be a perverse incentive. Very many thanks in advance Marathon Man ’64 proudly supporting
