I’m looking forward to helping my little mate Noah and his family in what has been a challenging time. That’s why I’m running to raise funds for the charity that supports them – Fanconi Anaemia Support Australasia.
I am competing in the UTA 50km simply because I can. There are countless people in the world who just want the ability to live a healthy life. I am lucky enough to not only have a healthy life but also the ability to push my body and mind beyond its everyday capabilities.

Doing this run is about helping people understand that if you put your mind toward anything, surround yourself with like-minded people and push yourself to never give up – you can achieve anything!

FASA was established in 2019 (and took the place of previous local FA organisations) to bring together families living with Fanconi Anaemia. It’s a rare disease, so the chance to meet and get to know other FA families, and to share knowledge, advice and experience, is invaluable. FASA is creating that virtual community across Australia, New Zealand and the world, and offering all the support we can. FASA is also closely aligned with and a supporter of St Vincent’s Institute of Medical Research in Melbourne, the centre of Fanconi Anaemia research in Australia.
