I have been an avid runner for many years. I started to run when I accidently made the cross country team in year 8 (1993). The top 10 across the line on carnival day made the team. I was number 10!!! While still at school I ran in the competitions set out by the school (TAS, Districts, Regionals and the occasional fun run). Since leaving school I found that I haven’t had much reason to run other than to keep fit and enjoy the occasional chocolate cake guilt free!!!
In the last 2 years I have found a purpose to my running. And this has helped me to improve my running. I’m now exercising with a cause. 15 years ago this year I lost my mother to breast cancer. My sister and I, sick of watching other mothers and daughters celebrate Mothers Day, decided that we needed to do something for all those Daughters who had lost their Mothers the same way we had. So we formed the team “WE RUN FOR MUM” to raise money for Breast Cancer Research by running 8km each Mother’s Day.
This year we have set ourselves the impossible task of raising $10,000. And with 5 weeks to go we are struggling with our task ($1440). Please find it in your heart to sponsor us. All donations no matter how small are happily accepted.
