Cathy tackles the 115km Heysen Ultra for Willow

Hi there

Some of you may (or may not)  know but I have been in training this year to take on the 115km Heysen Ultra in October

I am  now turning my challenge into a fundraiser and dedicating it to the memory of my darling niece Willow, who sadly passed away in April this year, the day before her first birthday. 

Willow was born at 28 weeks and spent 170 days in hospital throughout her short life, the first 80 of those in Flinders Medical Centre, who were instrumental in helping her overcome some major hurdles. They also helped her big sister Hazel, when she was born premature at 34 weeks.

All  funds raised will go to the Flinders Medical Centre NICU to help fund a Nava Ventilator.  This ventilator uses state of the art technology and is able to support babies smaller than 500g. It is a truly lifesaving piece of equipment  and will be a first for Flinders.

Any and all donations, large or small would be appreciated

Hoping I can channel some of Willow's incredible fighting spirit as I tackle this one


Love Cathy 

My Updates

Not the Greenbelt Challenge 25/7/21

So I should have run the Greenbelt Challenge today as part of my training but Covid put a stop to that. Did the 30km on the treadmill instead. If I’m honest, just a little bit happy that it was cancelled, would not have enjoyed being out in that weather. Training  on track for the Heysen Ultra 

Thank you to my Sponsors
