Welcome to my fundraising page!

Thanks for being a part of the 777 Bravehearts challenge!!! The challenge itself will no doubt be one hell of a physical and mental challenge, pounding the pavement for 290 odd kilometres, jetting around the country each day and finding snatches of sleep where possible.
Before I can even think about this aspect of the challenge however I need to make sure I can actually get to the start line! Travel, accom, logistics, avoiding injury, life stuff and a minimum fundraising target all need to be ticked off before i can take that first step out my front door towards the start line.

From June 27th to July 3rd 2016 I will be attempting to run 7 full Marathons, in 7 consecutive days in 7 different states / territories. The itinerary is as follows:

Marathon #1 - Monday 27th June Perth, WA
Marathon #2 - Tuesday 28th June, Adelaide, SA
Marathon #3 - Wednesday 29th June, Melbourne, VIC
Marathon #4 - Thursday 30th June, Hobart, TAS
Marathon #5 - Friday 1st July, Canberra, ACT
Marathon #6 - Saturday 2nd July, Kingscliff, NSW
Marathon #7 - Sunday 3rd July Gold Coast (GC Marathon), QLD

Aside from the oppurtunity to travel around this beautiful country, challenge my own spiritual, mental and physical boundaries and be part of group of legends...this challenge will primarily help to raise founds for the Bravehearts foundation who's goals and work contributes to:

Our Mission is to stop child sexual assault in society.

Our Vision is to make Australia the safest place in the world to raise a child.

Research shows one in five Australian children will be sexually assaulted in some way before their 18th birthday. That’s 59,000 children each year and more than 1000 a week. Bravehearts aims to halve these numbers by 2020 and make Australia the safest place in the world to raise a child.
