Support my challenge to restore sight!

I'm taking on Fred’s Big Run this August to STEP UP TO RESTORE SIGHT! 

My goal is to raise funds for The Fred Hollows Foundation to continue the legacy of an Australian legend, Fred Hollows. 

Because right now, 4 out of 5 people who are blind don't need to be...

For as little as $25, you can restore sight to someone who is blind, and change their life forever!

Please make a donation and support my challenge to give the gift of sight.

Fred Hollows' dream was to live in a world where no one was needlessly blind, sponsor my challenge and let's honour his memory together.

Thank you for your support.

The End

Wednesday 1st Sep
With so much sadness and people going through such trouble times my faith in humanity has been restored through the generosity of people and support of people. This challenged has motivated me to cherish every moment with my beautiful family. I blindfolded myself for 1 hr and tried to function and it was one of the most scariest things I have ever done. Myself and the WNOW team have achieved so much through this but most of all we have achieve a sense of pride in humanity and that everyone can make a difference, over and out 

26 Days in

Saturday 28th Aug
I am honestly shocked at what my body can still do at 40 years of age. I have had 14 surgeries and about the same dislocations throughout my playing career. I have been inspired by what the Fred Hollows charity is doing for people here in Aust. No one in this country should not have a reason to experience the wonderful sense of seeing. A friend once said to me the more you put into something the more you get out of it. Make someone happy or help someone and it comes back 10 fold to you. 
Body is holding up well and I have my final 5 Km to do and will push to do a 5km time trial and do it on under 20mins 🙏

16 Days in

Tuesday 17th Aug
Hey Guys, 16 Days in and I’m starting to come out the other side of it. Legs are feeling good & strong. Plan is to continue on for the next 10 days aiming for 5km a day run which should get me to the 150km. It has been an incredible experience to watch my body change and adapt to the demands of running everyday. No one in this world should suffer blindness with the wealth that we have as a world. I urge you to try and blindfolded yourself for 5 minutes and try walk around the house. Fred Hollow is saint and I am blown away by the support people have shown. A big 10 days coming up.

11 Days In

Wednesday 11th Aug
People 11 Days in and I’m starting to feel a bit stronger in my legs and I have just ticked over a 1/3 of the way. We have a great team of WNOW where we worked in groups of 2 this morning and done a few km’s. Thanks for all the support and want to push on the next 20 days now

5 Days in

Thursday 5th Aug
5 days in and the body is not great, left knee has some tendinitis and my back has just flared up tonight. Not sure I thought 5km a day would be this hard on the body. 

I have done very little preparation but I will push on and be smart with how I do my km’s from now on. Big days followed by recovery days instead of gradual everyday and see how we go. Blown away by all the support
