My progress




So far this year I have helped provide:

$200 Raised

funded one hour of research to work on finding a cure for kids' cancer

$600 Raised

funded a global cancer specialist to consult on better treatment for three kids

$1000 Raised

funded an gene panel analysis for three kids with brain cancer

Help me create a BETTER future for kids with cancer.

90 children are diagnosed with cancer each month in Australia. As many as 90% of kids who survive will develop one or more chronic health conditions. 

We’ve got to find a better way to help them.

That’s why I am taking action. This September, I will log 250km of movement to help raise money for cancer treatments that are kinder, gentler and more effective.

Please support me by making a tax-deductible donation to The Kids’ Cancer Project.

We hit $5,000 so shift the target

Friday 16th Sep
Now that I am halfway through the better challenge im confident on exceeding the targets set at the beginning of the month. Already with everybodies donations we have raised over the $5,000 target so now im turning my aim at $7,000. What a seriously amazing effort by the community! Im upholding my promise to reach 250km's and although im nervous about the 60minute 10km race I have a plan and will stick to it. This whole challenge really reminds me of running training where setting goals is so important. When you reach a goal you need to keep moving the goal posts and the journey is about continual improvement. My heart goes out to all those fighting childhood cancer and I am glad to beable to contribute to the cause.

A Daily Route to hit the goal

River Run 100

Monday 12th Sep
Yesterday I ran The River Run 100 another 10km Race. I am pleased to announce I got even closer to my 1 hour goal. Finishing in 1hour 6 minutes shaving off another 5 minutes. A 6:30am start time on a Sunday is always a tough ask but I just kept thinking about my sister and the better challenge and what I am doing this for. Its idealistic to say we only do these things for ourself, to get fitter and live better, but in reality I would much rather be in bed sleeping in after a week of over 65km's but doing this for a cause makes it much easier to commit. 

I have had so many generous contributors and supporters in my first week of the challenge and I want to thank you all. I have almost got to my $5,000 Personal goal which is going to go to such an amazing charity. 

Bridge to Brisbane Complete

Monday 29th Aug
It was an early sunday start and 7km's in I didnt think I could finish. I had to dig really deep and pushed the final 3km's through some serious pain. I managed to complete to 10km's in 1hour 11 minutes beating my last time by 12 minutes. I feel great that I have started off this challenge like this and for such a great cause. Now the real hard work begins to conquer 250km's for september. Thanks to everybody who has supported

Bridge to Brisbane

Friday 26th Aug
This Sunday I will be racing in the Bridge to Brisbane. This will be a great entree to the month long challenge to reach 250km's. I am dedicating this first run to my sister and setting a stretch goal to get across the line in 1 hour! Wish me Luck
