2017 - The Ice Marathon in Antarctica

Story

7 Down 1 to go! You know ONLY 104 people in the world have completed this feat. I'm hoping one day to be added to this exclusive list.
 

I'd like to share with you a little story about myself with a view that you may assist me in on my journey. Back in early 2010 I was sharing a beer with a close friend and we got onto the topic of running marathons. As I am an individual that likes to give most things a go I commented that I wouldn't mind trying to run a marathon. My mate nearly choked on his beer and replied......"You!.... run a marathon." Naturally I didn't take that too well (If you knew me that comment was like waving a red rag to a bull) I may be short and stocky but stronger is belief in me that "If you think you can, You will!"

Suffice to say I went home that day and googled marathons and entered the 2010 Gold Coast Airport Marathon. I have to warn you I am not your typical marathon build - short and stocky. I'm pleased to report that I completed the marathon in 4hrs 12 mins 58 secs without a break, a truly emotional but rewarding journey. The following year I visited my Brother-in-Law in New York where I entered the New York Marathon. If you ever decide to do a marathon and you only want to do one, then this is the one your should earmark to do.

On my return I researched marathons further and came across a website that advertised membership into The Seven Continents Marathon Club and The Marathon Grand Slam Club. To enter this exclusive group you must complete a recognized marathon on each continent (7 in total), to get into the Grand Slam Club you need to add a marathon in the Arctic (8 in total)

I am now pleased to report that I have gained membership into the 7 Continents Marathon Club.

To date approx  223 worldwide have achieved this feat and are recognized in the 7 continents club and approx only 104 have achieved this feat and are recognized in the Grand Slam Club.

With that was set my bucket list life goal of gaining membership into The Marathon Grand Slam Club! That got me thinking further if I was going to embark on such a journey how can I help someone in the process. So as well as setting this physical challenge for myself, I have also set a financial goal of raising $250,000 for Cancer Research. It is amazing the impact this horrid disease is having not only on the patient but also the toll it takes on family and friends. I can say from my own experience that I have lost people close to me that have incurred this dreaded disease. So with this I am hoping to assist by raising much needed funds towards research to help rid the world of this disease. Imagine a world without Cancer!

So where am I to date with my Physical and Financial goals:

2010 - Completed the Gold Coast Airport Marathon (Australia)

2011 - Completed the ING New York Marathon (North America)

2012 - Had a break.

2013 - Completed the Virgin London Marathon (Europe)

2014 - Completed the Great Wall of China Marathon (Asia)

2015 - Completed the Big Five Marathon (Africa) (Thorough a game park.....gulp!)

2016 - Completed one of the hardest marathons in the world, The Inca Trail Marathon (South America)

2017 - Completed the Southernmost marathon in the world, The Ice Marathon (Antarctica)

2019 - On April 9th 2019 I will be tackling the other coldest marathon in the world, The North Pole Marathon...........Then I hope to say...."Goal completed!"

Regarding my financial goal of raising much need funds for Cancer Research, to date I have raised just over $195,000 which has been a sensational effort on everyone's behalf.

So I am writing to ask if you are willing to assist me in any way. Cure Cancer Australia Foundation will be most appreciative.

Thank you for your time and hope you will be willing to support me on my Physical and Financial goal journey.
