My Story

I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2018 to raise much needed funds for Wesley Mission. In 2016 I entered the City-2-Surf in Wesley Mission's team and failed to finish due to a bout of gastro that destroyed me before I climbed Heartbreak Hill. In 2017 I upped the stakes and trained all winter for the Half Marathon for Wesley Mission again, only to catch that season's horror flu 3 days before the start and had to withdraw. I have had the privilege of working in a support role at Wesley Mission for the last 10 years. This has allowed me to witness the extraordinary work of our staff and volunteers who work tirelessly and selflessly for the most vulnerable in our community. Inspired by the stories of the people we walk alongside I have decided I can't give up in my quest to complete an event in Wesley Mission's team. Therefore I have raised the bar again and have entered in the full marathon. Please consider whether you can support our work by sponsoring my 42.2km on Sunday 16th September. (BTW, if I don't make this one I don't think I can continue to raise the bar).
