Dobbo's different kind of marathon
Dobbo has been diagnosed with a brain tumour. He's helped many of us on our running journey & now it's our turn to help him.Auckland
Sam "Dobbo" Dobson is one of our coaches at Get Running who has recently been diagnosed with a brain tumour. Following surgery to remove the tumour, his pathology results have shown grade 4 Glioblastoma, which is the highest grade you can go.
Dobbo’s passion and his supportive nature has helped and encouraged so many of us on our running journey - whether that's running our first event or our twenty-first, improving our time or just starting out running. Now it's our turn to cheer Dobbo on - if we all chip in what we can, we can relieve some financial pressure and enable him to focus on his health and spending time with his family and friends.
Let’s do it for Dobbo!
Olivia Blaylock's involvement (page creator)
Dobbo is one of my coaches at Get Running who has helped me go from a part time, fair weathered runner to a marathon runner.
Use of funds
Financial assistance while he is undergoing treatment and recovery.
As you know Dobbo is a bit of a rugby nut and even though the All Blacks haven't made the final, Dobbo will!
Thanks to everyone's support we've organised flights, accommodation and tickets to both the final and bronze finals, for Dobbo and Jane (Mum) & Andrew (Dad).
During a hideous time, this is a chance for the Dobson family to create wonderful memories and for Dobbo to fulfill a lifetime dream - he's fizzing!
While we have the costs for the trip covered, there will be more financial expenses during Dobbo's treatment when he returns to NZ so your ongoing support is much appreciated. Aroha nui.
