Running A.F.A.R

I’ve taken a stand against blood cancer.

Hello All

Patric, Bomber, Harry and Hugo will be completing a blindfolded marathon in an attempt to raise money for the Leukaemia Foundation. This cause is close to our team's hearts and one that matters. That's why we're going to try so hard to do this right. We don't just want to finish, we want to finish in a time fast enough to set a Guiness World Record for fastest blindfolded marathon. 

Patric, Bomber and Harry will be able to see and be guiding Hugo through the whole course. 

This is a very important cause and we want to do our bit. Leukaemia affects too many people and any funding we can raise to either help with research or develop facilities to assist with treatment or anything else the money we raise may do is our ultimate goal. 

Patric has shares his connection to the Leukaemia Foundation below:

"My father passed away in 2010 after a one year battle with acute myeloid leukaemia. He had a zest for life and was known for his stamina, determination, great sense of humour and optimism to laugh off any near disaster. We hope to honour his spirit of adventure and enjoyment of a challenge even in face of fighting cancer.


We believe that setting ourselves the goal of completing a marathon blindfolded will push us to our physical and mental limits. We feel the need to undertake such a challenge, as anyone suffering from cancer and their loved ones face these struggles on a daily basis.

Hugo and I want to share the benefits running has on your physical health and mental wellbeing. We hope to raise awareness of blood cancers, inspire people to take on a challenge and incorporate physical exercise into their lives."

So come down December 12 to the WA Athletics Stadium (Stephenson Ave, Floreat) to witness history being made. Gates open at 5:00pm with the run starting at 5:30pm!
