Coastal Challenge Run for Huntingtons

$1,680 of $500 goal
Given by 35 generous donors in around 4 months

In Feb 2021 i will be running 33km in the Coastal Challenge. I am hoping to raise money for Huntington's Disease!


Many people will not know or will not have heard about Huntington's Disease. Recently, my family was affected for the second time by the disease. The affects of this disease start well before true realisation of how it affects the body. It affects families and individuals for years and years without any real attention to the impact is has financially, mentally and physically.

In February 2021 i am going to run the Coastal Challenge which is a 33km Run along the shore line from Manly through to Devonport. Ive never been someone who has the patience or desire to complete such a long run, but throughout the summer i will be aiming to push my training out further. Those who know me, will know my limit is around the 10km mark, so keep a look out for any updates on how my training is tracking! Check out the Coastal Challenge website for more info on the race:

Thank you for donating and i look forward to the challenge in Feb 2021!
