I'm fundraising for brain matters!

I’m doing Connor’s Run to support the brave and awesome kids fighting brain cancer - the #1 disease killer of young people, and to fund the science that will one day end paediatric brain cancer. 

Brain cancer research is on the tipping point. We can all be part of making important breakthroughs happen. My participation is something that I can do to support the science and in the meantime the patients. For all the people out there currently battling brain tumours and for those who couldn’t wait for research to progress any longer.

I’m doing this because I know we can find a way to make brain cancer go the way of the dinosaurs. Make a donation to my page and be part of making brains matter, together we can change the odds for young people.

Day 4 - Food for my soul

Saturday 4th Sep
During the lockdown, I always look forward to an online Zoom capoeira session with the fam. Great to see smiley faces, all of which are also involved in promoting the cause for the RCD foundation!

In addition, a few of us were wearing our Connor Runs t-shirts as well.
The bright sun and my ability to spend some time outdoors did really help as well. I hope everyone caught some much needed Vitamin D and had a great Saturday.

Love and peace out! :)

Day 3 - The rain won't stop nothing

Friday 3rd Sep
The rain did not stop from 2pm today.
It just. did. not. stop. 
I thought I'd be bummed out by it but it made me even more determined.

The clouds were forming from the early morning and I was wondering if I would push myself to finish my 15k daily steps target and 200km total distance as my commitment to this cause.

Really glad I did it despite training alone in the dark.
The only illumination I had was by a small lantern I received as a free gift from a previous job.

I walked, jogged, ran, stretched and even trained capoeira tonight.
All I had in my head was that I had an obligation to fulfil the goals I set for myself. Gratitude to everyone involved and especially the many sponsors out there who donated!

Love and peace out!

Day 2 - Beautiful weather

Thursday 2nd Sep
The sun was shining in the park as I saw various dogs and their owners happily stroll around with their coffee cups in hand. The weather was pretty awesome today and it was fitting that a pre-scheduled Japanese lunch was on the cards for me today. 

The demands of my work will not get to me as I strive to achieve my workout goals for this charity as my obligations to my sponsors. Another capoeira session tonight followed by a long stroll with my forever fur-buddy to cap off the night. 

Good night to all and pray the kids we are helping stay warm and cozy in the warmth of their loved ones.

Day 1 - Done and dusted

Wednesday 1st Sep
Day 1 - Inspired by many others who are choosing to get involved and make this part of their lives in helping the kids out! 

A solid day of work followed by walking the dog (twice) as well as a solid capoeira session with the gang proved to be a great 1st day for my participation in this charity. Life in lockdown is hard enough but with the right people around (i.e. family and friends), everything is all good. I am very grateful to all who decided to donate their hard earned cash for this worthwhile cause.

Love and peace out :)

Thank you to my Sponsors
