Running for Premature Babies Hall of Fame
There are eight very special runners who have been part of every Running for Premature Babies team since 2007: here are some of their stories.
Why Jason joined RFPB
Couldn’t say no to such a great cause
Definitely Jason’s first run and RFPB’s amazing volunteers who motivate the team to do it’s best every year.
Why Brendan joined RFPB
Seeing a simple flyer in Coogee was all that it took.
Meeting new people, having fun and seeing last year’s first timers catch the running bug and turn up again the next year!
Brendan is RFPB men's champion for 2013 and a member of the team's training team.
Why James joined RFPB
Seeing a flyer in a local gym was the inspiration James needed to start running and help a great cause at the same time.
Seeing firsthand where money raised by the team is spent – James’ first son, Griff, was saved by one of the humidicribs bought by the team – 4 years after James first ran with the team.
Why Jo joined RFPB
Jo works for the Royal and felt compelled to run for the cause after seeing Sophie's flyers everywhere, and having run the race more than 12 times.
Running along Hickson Rd and to Pyrmont where the course doubles back on itself. To cheer and be cheered by other RFPB team members is priceless. Everyone gets to feel like a champion!!
Why Bec joined RFPB
As a passionate runner and Royal staff member, the decision to join was very simple for Bec.
Personally I have found it inspiring watching individuals find solace, peace, motivation and friendships training and completing the Half Marathon for the RFPB foundation.
Bec was RFPB team champion from the years 2008-2012.
Why Mark joined RFPB
To give something back to the Royal and, as a keen runner, meet the challenge of running more than 15kms. He’s since completed two full marathons!
Being part of something that touches so many people and knowing that every cent raised really counts!
