Bampa's Marathon

By Stephanie Hanbury

We're Changing the Game!

Prostate cancer threatens the lives of 1 in 6 Aussie men.

After the recent loss of our beloved Bampa we are raising funds today to save men’s lives tomorrow.

Connor and Steph will run 42k each during October with your support. 

Every dollar you donate will be a game-changer for Aussie men and their families, boosting life-saving prostate cancer research, nursing, and support provided by PCFA.

You can make a massive difference by committing to give a tax-deductible donation today.

On behalf of the 16,700 men who will be diagnosed this year – thank you!

My Updates

We're done! 46km!!

Sunday 31st Oct
He did it! 10km jog yesterday finished us off. Achieving a whopping 46km in October. Huge achievement Connor. Just shows you can achieve anything you dream and help people along the way!

5.8km left in 3 days!

Friday 29th Oct
Poor little guy has been down with a chesty cough so no running. We opted for a walk in the cold Monday weather this week. Doing awesome Connor!

10km to go!

Monday 25th Oct
With just a week left in this huge challenge the little guy has only 10km to complete!
Impressively he has remained eager to run each session to complete what he has set out to do.
Some seasoned tips and stretches from Daddy have been invaluable. 

10km down in 4 days

Friday 8th Oct
The little guys has achieved his first 10km in 4 days. Three sessions with mum and dad, and of course Alec cycling by his side.
Thanks to all our donors for their kind support!

We have just updated our goal!

Tuesday 5th Oct
Our goal of $500 which was set on Sunday has now been raised to $1500.  A big target but with so much good will out there and determination by the little man we can achieve it! 

Wow, 2 days in and already met our target!

Tuesday 5th Oct
We are amazed by the incredible encouragement and generosity everyone has extended us so far.  Despite the cool (and wet) weather Connor has already achieved his first 6.8km since Sunday with a few more sessions scheduled this week.  Motivation is high and seeing all your well wishes and donations is spurring us on even more!
