Running 7 marathons in 7 states in 7 days and raising funds for a great cause; how could anyone say no to that?

I’m in for the first part, but I need your help for the second part, raising $10,000 for Bravehearts - Australia’s leading child protection organisation working to prevent child sexual assault.

‘But why….seriously?’ – I get this question a lot. My response is simple ‘Why not?’. I’m up for a challenge, though this will be the biggest physical and mental challenge I have ever done; the ultimate test. Family and friends think I’m mad, so that’s all the motivation I need.

I have been running for nearly 20 years, and my long distance running started after a bet between workmates, with the stakes of having to run a marathon. Whilst I didn’t lose that bet, I decided to join in on the challenge; and haven’t looked back since. 

Everyone knows running has lots of physical benefits – it keeps you active, healthy, and strong; although post run my body often tells me otherwise! However it’s the mental aspects of running that keep me coming back, there is nothing better than that runner’s high. And research also says that running improves your memory and makes you smarter; so I’m hanging on to that!

Bravehearts is such a fantastic organisation. There are not many more worthwhile causes than helping educate, empower and protect kids against sexual abuse, and help those that have unfortunately experienced it. Please help support these kids; it will change their lives.
