Mother's Day Classic 2010

After finishing the 4km run in the top third last year, I have been in training for this year's 8km event. This is my opportunity to help make a difference in the lives of those women living with breast cancer now, and those who may be diagnosed in the future.

Last year, with the help of my colleagues and customers at Books in Print, I raised a grand total $2,053, putting me in the top five fundraisers in Melbourne. Please help me smash this total by making a donation at my online sponsorship page. All proceeds go to the National Breast Cancer Foundation.


Thank you,
