Marathon in a Month 2023

We’re taking on a Marathon in a Month for sick kids!

As many of you know Raymond recently spent a week in Westmead Children’s Hospital for pneumonia and a collapsed lung.

He was cared for, loved and nursed back to health. For us it was a week of hell and heartbreak, for other families this is their everyday existence. 

Please donate anyway with any amount you can!

This October, we are completing a Marathon in a Month – and I need your help.

Every day, 60 families of seriously sick and injured children call Ronald McDonald House in Westmead home. We am fundraising and challenging ourselves  to complete a Marathon in a Month to show these families they have our support.

To help support even more families, we are aiming to raise $500 to provide 2+ nights of supported accommodation at the House.

Every little bit helps, so please support me today – thank you!


My Updates

Officially passed the marathon km’s

Tuesday 10th Oct
As of yesterday I’ve passed the marathon total of 42.195km.
Sitting at just shy of 56km and hoping to smash those kms out of the park. 

Hit our target!

Friday 6th Oct
We’ve hit our team goal and we have no plans to slow down.
Thanks to everyone who had already donated, we truly appreciate it. 
We want to smash the goal out the park and give back to a charity that supports so many seriously sick kids and their families. 

Almost halfway to our goal

Wednesday 27th Sep
October hasn't began yet and we are almost halfway to our goal. Looks like we’ll need to increase our goal. 

Thank you to all the generous supporters who have donated to my fundraiser
