Great Glen

I’ve taken a stand against blood cancer.

I will be running the 42 mile Great Glen Ultra Marathon short course in July, for the challenge I have decided to fundraise for Leukemia as my Uncle was diagnosed with and passed away from this in 2005.

Today, more than 50 Australians will be told that they have blood cancer and tomorrow - another 50 families will be devastated by the same news.

I have created this page to raise vital funds to help provide the special care that is needed to get families through a blood cancer diagnosis as well as to help fund more game-changing research into this disease. 

The money I raise will help provide care for those in need right now — and it will back the brightest researchers to continue uncovering faster diagnoses and better treatments to save lives. 

Please show me your support by donating to my fundraising campaign.

You are a legend Nic. Eight and half hours running and climbing the Scottish highlands in pelting rain all the way. An amazing effort. Cheers, Greg
