Spread Your Wings
Happy new year etc and hope you're all avoiding Covid like we all avoid our resolutions.
As you all know, 10 years ago I was diagnosed with leukaemia as an 18 year old. What followed was a pretty crazy few months (and year) which culminated in me finishing my intense treatment, completing my Year 12 at Mount Waverley Secondary College and attending Schoolies (rip).
Christmas Eve 2011 was when I was diagnosed, and 24 January 2012 was when I was officially in remission (and have always been in ever since, weird flex).
I missed the 5 year anniversary, but thought let's milk this one more time and celebrate 10 years cancer free baybeh.
I want to commemorate this milestone by either
walking 1 lap around Albert Park Lake (5km) or running 2 laps (10km). 10k's for
10 years cancer free.
Everyone invited has at some stage in the last 10 years been a massive support to me and has played their part in me reaching this milestone. I want this event to be an opportunity to say thank you to all the nurses/doctors, family, friends, teachers etc who all supported me during the most difficult test of my life.
I have set up the below donation page to continue supporting the great work Cancer Council does. I would be grateful for any donation you can make. I am also in the process of having some sick t-shirts created, with the proceeds going to Cancer Council, so make sure to order asap once prepared if you would like to wear on the day / to your next social event.
The walk/run will start at 9am on the dot, so please arrive from 8:30am onwards. We will then have some light refreshments after at about 10:15am so I can personally give my thanks!
I will drop a pin where the meeting spot will be closer to the date.
Hope to see you then, understanding that it's the Aus Day long weekend so expecting a few people to be away.
Thank you to our Sponsors
