As my fitness Goals progressed, I started to think…hmmm..maybe I could do something ‘bigger’ with this, wouldnt it be great to be able to raise money for Charity, through me striving towards these Goals. I thought of all those people out there who are undertaking epic Adventures for Charity – and I wanted that….in my own way. As someone with a disability who has been supported by charity over the years, just to get through my daily life, I also wanted to ‘give back’ to charity, myself.
I thought, what better way, to connect these Chasing my Dreams Fitness Goals, raising money for charity, AND ‘giving back’ to a charity which has given me (and countless others!) SO much support over the years – than to base my Fundraiser Event around SBH Qld (Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Qld) http://spinabifida.org/ , and raise much-needed funds for this absolutely INVALUABLE supportive charity which gives so much out to others, in way of AMAZING support towards those of us with Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus!!
And so my SBH Qld (Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Qld) Fundraising Event was born!
If you would like to support SBH Qld by donation, please feel free to do so Donate through ‘Everyday Hero’, or by direct deposit into:

Your genorosity will go a long way towards SBH Qld’s mission to improve the lives of children, adults, and families living with Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus. Thank you!
