Team Ian & Kayleen Johnston

They are Daddy / Daughter duo Ian and Kayleen Johnston. 

 

Ian and his wife Hetty Johnston founded Bravehearts 23 years ago, when their youngest daughter Kayleen Johnston disclosed her own sexual assault at the hands of Ian’s father. 

 

As a family they have spent their life from that point on, dedicated to the protection of children. Ian and Kayleen are now choosing to run to protect kids. With a combined fundraising goal of $20,000 and the physical aspect of running 7 marathons in 7 states on 7 days, this is the ultimate challenge for them both.

 

“As a father, I just want to protect my girls. I want all parents to be aware that this crime can happen to any family, and the ONLY person to blame is the offender. I am so proud of what my family has achieved and this is just another challenge that we can face together” Ian said.

 

Kayleen says “I consider myself very lucky to have the family that I have. If I was another child, in any other family, Bravehearts would not exist today! But having a happy childhood, or having support should you need it should not come down to luck, which is why I am so determined to now share my story, and raise awareness by doing this crazy event. I have been so inspired by others doing this challenge over the years that it’s about time I actually got involved and signed up myself – I cannot wait to complete this event”
