My Story

INSPIRED by the story of a great friend, and the strength he and his amazing wife have shown this year has me running in this year's Blackmores Sydney Running Festival. I pride myself on putting my family first and working tirelessly to earn what you strive for. Always the first to raise my hand and work outside my comfort zone to help achieve greatness for the brands I work for, yet aside from career ambition and an assiduous work ethic, I've never stopped to think about what I could do/be differently. During the past six weeks, I've thrown every spare ounce of energy behind my preparation for our run that will support Stillbirth Foundation Australia on Sept 16. My participation may only play a small part, but I'll be forever thankful to the campaign for helping me realize how easy it really is to squeeze time in our busy lives to do something for ourselves. So far I've lost 10Kg/22Ib and attacking work and family life harder than I thought was possible. I'm inspired by and thankful for the opportunity to be a part of this campaign, and ready to SMASH this race! I'd be so grateful for my friend's fundraising campaign to be shared around the world from the amazing network I've had the privilege to build and work with over the years. Thank You! I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2018 to raise much needed funds for Stillbirth Foundation Australia. 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.

About my team: Running For Everleigh

Our beautiful daughter Everleigh Rose Deuchar was born sleeping on the 17th February this year at 39 weeks. After a healthy low-risk pregnancy, our world was left shattered. We want to help prevent this from happening to others. Yet in Australia 6 babies are born sleeping everyday, a figure that has not changed on the past 2 decades. In honour of our sweet baby girl, our team 'Running For Everleigh' will be participating in the Sydney running festival to raise much needed funds for The Stillbirth Foundation Australia. It is the only charity in Australia solely dedicated to researching the causes, risk factors and possible preventions of stillbirth yet it does not receive government funding. The aim is to spread awareness about stillbirth and raise money so that they can continue their vital work. You can help, too! Please donate and share this page. Any amount you can give makes a difference - And thank you in advance for your generosity and support.
