This Sunday, I will run the Sydney marathon in a business suit! I’ll be running to raise funds for the Fragile X Association of Australia, an amazing nonprofit which provides vital support to families with Fragile X syndrome.
I’m personally inspired by their work as my son has fragile X and several others in our family are also affected. Being diagnosed with a genetic condition is a huge moment for a family and the association are there to help people in this tough time and beyond.
For this run, I’ll be taking on the record for the fastest marathon in a suit. I am the current record holder for the half marathon; now I’m looking to go twice the distance.
I’d like to invite you to get behind my crazy challenge and give whatever you can. My Everydayhero page is here. I am aiming to raise $3000 and am half way, after also raising funds and awareness at the City2Surf.
The more people that know about Fragile X Association of Australia, the greater their impact, so please also spread the word by sharing my page with your friends and family.
Thanks for your support!
