Megan McGinty

My name is Megan McGinty, Partner to Gavin and Mother to Isla and I need your help in order to reach my $10,000 target to support Bravehearts.

Bravehearts is an amazing organisation - I participated in 777 in 2016 & 2017 and I am participating again in 2020.

My motivation for this event has nothing to do with running - I'm not a natural runner or a fast runner but I have determination.

You may ask why would I run 7 marathons in 7 days in 7 states of Australia and the answer is simple. I am a mum and I want my child to grow up in the safest country in the world. Currently 1 in 5 children are sexually abused by the time they turn 15 and as a mother this horrifies me. Bravehearts educates, empowers and protects children. The funds raised from this event go towards the Bravehearts ditto program that is delivered to children between 3 -8 years old. Along with the funds the event raises it also raises awareness of this topic in the community and what Bravehearts the organisation is about.

From previous experiences this journey will be very challenging, it takes more emotional strength than physical strength to cross the finish line.

Journey details below.

In 7 days we will travel on an estimated 14 commercial flights covering over 10,000km by air and 300km of running.
