Take on your own challenge

Help us give premature babies a better chance of survival

My Updates

Thank you!

Firstly; thank you to each and every one of you for your donations, well wishes and encouragement since I decided to run five marathons in five days. 


Your contribution will help care for premature babies and give them a better chance of survival and quality of life, which every child deserves.


Today I wrapped up the fifth run and whilst my legs were tired and feet were sore, it cannot, and never will be as challenging as being born premature. 


These runs are not about me, they are about raising awareness and much needed funds for premature babies. I’m proud to now say we have all helped make a difference

It begins!

My five marathons in five days begins tomorrow.

Thank you to everyone who has donated, shared and given me their support and encouragement. I’ve been training hard, and I will not let you down!

It’s absolutely awesome that we’ve reached and surpassed our $5,000 goal; we will keep pushing for more over the next five days.

Thanks again, everyone. Together we are helping make a difference to babies born premature.

5 Marathons in 5 Days

As you may know, my son, Hector, was born prematurely at 34 weeks. His first few weeks in the outside world were stressful, but he battled hard and is now happy and healthy at home with mum and dad.

In our few weeks at the Flinders Medical Centre, Neonatal Unit, we met some amazing people. Doctors, nurses, kids and parents alike. The effort and hours the staff put into each baby is inspiring, and immediately I wanted to give back and help wherever I could.

My goal is to raise $5000, which will all go towards supplying hospitals with lifesaving Neonatal equipment. It is my hope that this challenge will also raise awareness of premature birth, and to help celebrate all premature babies. Finally I hope to set the standard my son would be proud of.

I’ll be running 5 Marathons in 5 Days, starting on the 31st of January 2024, and finishing on the 4th of February.

This will be a tough challenge, but it will never be as tough as being born prematurely.

Any and all donations are much appreciated.
