On Sunday, 20 September 2009 I'll be taking part in the Blackmores Half-Marathon, my very first, which is part of the Sydney Running Festival. Other than the personal satisfaction of (hopefully) completing the race, I'll also be running for a charity, Redkite. To put it in their own words:
"Redkite supports children, young people and their families through cancer by providing emotional support, financial assistance and education services. Redkite's work is as vital as assisting families with utility and food bills, providing education grants to help children and young people stay connected with school and catch up with missed study, providing petrol vouchers to get a child to treatment and funding social workers and music therapists in hospitals."If you wish to help support RedKite please follow this link to the Go Fundraise website who facilitate the collection.
