My Story

I will be running my first half marathon on the 16th of September in support of the Starlight Children's Foundation. This charity is unique in that it focusses on brightening the lives of sick children and their families. Being an Occupational Therapy student, this is something meaningful to me and an area in which I am hoping to make a difference. I would greatly appreciate any donations, no matter how small. Together we can help lighten the burden and trauma that kids with serious illnesses and their families are going through. Let's do our bit to help these kids remain kids at heart and keep those beautiful smiles on their faces. Thank you so much for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me.

About my cause: Starlight Children's Foundation

Starlight's mission is to brighten the lives of seriously ill and hospitalised children and young people by replacing pain, fear and stress with fun, joy and laughter.

Since its establishment in 1988, Starlight has expanded to become the broadest reaching and most trusted children’s charity in Australia. There is now a Starlight Express Room in every children’s hospital in the country and over 160 Captain Starlights nationwide. This year, Starlight will be refurbishing its Starlight Express Rooms in Newcastle and Canberra. 

Last year, Starlight granted 541 life-changing wishes and delivered over 575,000 positive Starlight experiences to seriously ill children, young people and their families.
