Support my challenge to help Australian kids in need

I am taking part in The Dream Run to help Australian kids in need achieve their dreams.

1 in 6 Australian children are living in poverty and don’t have equal access to an education. Together, we need to support these kids so they can dream BIG and create a better future for themselves.

So I am running to raise funds for The Smith Family to help children in need make the most out of their education. 

Please DONATE NOW and support my challenge to change the lives of Australian children living in poverty.

Thank you.

Almost at the end

Wednesday 29th Jun
One day left to donate and 4km left for me to run! It has been a difficult month trying to run this 100km, but the end is in sight.
When I started this run I wasn't sure if I could actually complete the challenge, it was quite literally going from 0 to 100. I haven't run like this since high school, but I needed to do it. I needed this challenge to help me start my journey to being a healthier fitter person. I'm going to keep up with my goals just maybe not as much running in 1 month.

First Week over, 20km run!

Sunday 5th Jun
20km in one week is more than some would have thought I could run in a month, given I'm a big fella, but I'm trying to lose weight and I thought this would be a good way to kick start my weight loss journey.

It's also and more importantly a fantastic cause to be donating to. As sometimes I feel we forget that even though we live in this wonderful country, some in our communities get left behind. This can be changed by giving everyone a fair chance at the very beginning of their schooling. It might not fix everything, but it's a start.

Zelda's first run!

Friday 3rd Jun
I was always told to have a cold shower straight after any exercise, but I think that if you're running in the cold rain a hot shower is much better.

Zelda came for her first run of the event and helped me run 4.5km around the linear park and back home. There were a lot more undulations on this run then on the uni loop, making it a challenging run.

But we both managed okay. Zelda could go again, I don't think I could not tonight anyway. 

First kilometres in

Wednesday 1st Jun
My first run of the month down. 4.4km around the uni loop. I set a goal to raise around $600 this month and we got to that goal before the month even started. This means I've had to up the fund raising goal a bit.

A huge thank you to everyone who has donated so far. I hope more people will continue to support me and this worthy cause.
