of $2,000 goal

If you know me, you know my son Ezra: who has been battling his critical congenital heart disease: Truncus Arteriosis. His condition is not a survivable one, and requires many surgical interventions. He has been nothing but a champion throughout his marathon journey and has had 2 open heart surgeries: all before one year of age!

I have joined Team Heartkids to challenge myself to run half a marathon while raising money for HeartKids: so they can continue to support other families like ours battling the unknown.
1 in 8 children are diagnosed with a congenital heart disease (one diagnosis every 3 hours): therefore, I’m looking to have 8 people (7 other brave runners or rookies like myself) on my team to finish either: 5km, 10km or half marathon in the ‘NewRun’ Running festival on 11 April.

Money raised will go towards funding support programs, research and expanding their services across Australia so no family going through this feels alone.

Their support financially, emotionally and over the phone has been invaluable on our journey.
