Support my Sun Up Challenge for families of children with cancer.

When a family is told their child has cancer, what they hear is “your child might die”. Every day in Australia, three families hear those words. Not every child will die, but every family who faces childhood cancer is changed forever. Cancer puts families under enormous pressure. It can feel like it’s impossible to hold it together.

That's why I am joining Redkite in the Sun Up challenge – to help provide emotional and practical support to families facing childhood cancer.

I'll be taking action by running, strolling or rolling while the sun is up this August, to raise money that will help families pay the bills, access emotional support, and more. From day one in the hospital and for as long as it takes, your help ensures that families don’t have to face their child’s cancer diagnosis alone.

Please support me by making a tax-deductible donation to my challenge. Your generosity will make sure that Redkite can provide even more families facing childhood cancer practical and emotional support and care.

My Updates

Day 13-17

Wednesday 17th Aug
52km down - 48km to go! 
I’m excited to be chipping away at the next half while on a trip to see our family in the Sunny State from tomorrow! 
A much needed and overdue break for our family. I sit deeply in gratitude having the opportunity to be able to make memories with my two children and husband. I know that it’s something not every family can do easily especially during health hardship. 

While it hurts my heart to think of what some must go through- my heart will fill and I will continue to be grateful for the uninterrupted time with my little family. 

My heart continues to fill with these amazing donations even over the last 24hours ! All I can say right now is THANKYOU! 
YOU are making a difference ! 

Day 9-12

Watch this space

The kilometres are clocking up and so are the donations !! Thankyou to everyone who is checking in and who are donating to a wonderful cause ! You guys rock ! Pic: walking my laps during my tea breaks at work. The fresh air is great !

Day 2

Tuesday 2nd Aug
It’s a work day and rather then sit at my desk - I stand .
I get a 10minute tea break twice a day where I’m dedicating that time to walk 1km at each break. 
Change up/ steps up/ mental health/ fresh air all checked off. 

To chip away at my 100km commitment I’m also going for a 3km run tonight after the kids are in bed. 
How’s my progress bar looking ?  Pretty good so far I reckon !
