My Story

Hi all. In 2012 I participated fundraising for the Heart Foundation and am delighted to do it again.
My maternal side of the family has serious issues with heart disease, my mum and both of her parents died from heart attacks and both of my uncles have survived a heart attack. I want to avoid that for myself and also see my son Rory grow up and have kids of his own. This is why I took up running in the first place. But its nice to know the The Heart Foundation is here to do vital research and education so I have a good chance of surviving in the event of a heart attack.
I've been taking part in the 5km runs at the Yarra Grape Run, The Spring Into Shape Series and the Melbourne Marathon and have been working hard to get my 5km time under 25mins, having done that now I have my sights set on 20mins. Stepping up to 14km will be a challenge but I hope to do it in under 1.5 hours.

Donations of any value are great and very welcome.

Thank You
