Running for Sal

$85,135 of $80,000 goal
Given by 262 generous donors in around 10 months

I am running for mental health awareness. Every km I run in 2022, I will personally donate $1 to Gumboot Friday. Current goal is 1000km


As many people know I lost my sister in 2019. She has left a massive void in my life and in my heart. Not a day goes by that I do not think of her. "Running for Sal" is a challenge I have set myself for 2022. My goal is to have a positive impact, both mentally and physically on my life and hopefully others along the way.

I will run as many kms as I can until the end of 2022.

For every kilometer I complete I will donate $1 to Gumboot Friday.

Along the way, I would like people to set me mini challenges / motivators. For example, it could be a single distance to run or to complete a distance within a certain time. You could set me a challenge and donate once I have ticked it off.

I will be posting updates on my progress.

The main thing I want to get out of this is for others to challenge themselves. Whether that be physically or mentally. Keep our minds healthy, talk to each other and have fun along the way.

I look forward to your mini challenge amd motivators. Better still, come join me 🤍

Goal Update  14 December 2022

The One More Minute - A Run to Remember and The Night on The Couch With Dom Harvey Fundraiser was amazing. The support was very humbling and we raised around $23,000 over the day and night.

I think everyone had a great time. And that is the most important thing. Bringing people together to connect and remember the 607 people we lost to suicide last year.

With the success of the event comes a need for a new goal. We have now raised over $79,000. There is still over 2 weeks left in the year and I still have some challenges that I will try and get through. So I think if we can hit the $80,000 mark, it would be amazing.

I am so grateful for all your support over the year. I really do appreciate it and it means so much to me and my family.

Thank you.

Big effort this year bro! Really well done! As promised, $1 for every KM you ran further than me this year. About August i realised this was going to be an expensive pledge!
Corey Choat

Awesome brother. Thank you so much for the support. I think you ran with me more than anyone else this year as well. So that motivation really helped me mate. Appreciate everything you have done over the year. A year that I know you have had a lot on. Thank you for supporting a great cause. Catch you soon.
