Mike Toner's Marathon for Fred 2020

Mike Toner's Marathon for Fred Hollows

Over 25 million people are needlessly blind on this planet but a simple procedure costing as little as $25 in most developing countries can restore their sight and change their lives for ever!

I raise money for The Fred Hollows Foundation because they help train and empower local eye doctors, nurses and health workers and create a sustainable system of care in the communities that need our help the most.

Their work  has a very clear purpose: to make sure everyone, whether they’re rich or poor, has access to high quality, affordable eye health as we enjoy right here in this country.

Thank you for your support 

My Updates

First big run

So today I set out to do my first big run in preparation for game day in December 

I had no expectation of how far I would run or even really where I would be running, but just wanted to see if I could possibly hit the 2hr mark of constant running... and am now very happy and surprised to say I actually made it! 

Again this was something I hadn’t ever done before, and it was actually quite daunting setting myself a challenge of which I had absolutely no concept of how I was going to go...

I had no idea what 21km really even looked like, let alone felt like but as of today I can now say I do!

Participating in a half marathon is something I hadn’t thought too much into, but the simple fact that I would be involved in such a great cause had me at hello...(and a pretty good nudge from Mike) 

Setting yourself a challenge isn’t exactly easy, as once you’ve committed there’s no backing out... but with the amazing support I’ve already received it has certainly made my first week in a pretty good one so far.

So if you’re in a position to make a donation, how ever big or small, to support this incredible cause and cheer me along on this half marathon journey it would be absolutely amazing!
$25 is all it takes to give the gift of sight.

Not long now, just under 3 weeks to go!!!

A first for everything!

They say there is a first for everything, so this is definitely a very big first for me...

This December I will be running my very first half marathon with the amazing TAT crew, and I couldn’t be more excited (and slightly mortified) to be supporting such a worthy cause.

I can’t say I’ve ever done anything like this before, so to say it will be a challenge is exactly what it will be!

I couldn’t be happier to be apart of such an amazing team and supporting and raising funds for such an important and special foundation as the Fred Hollows Foundation.

All it takes is $25 to restore the eyesight of someone in need. So I’m hoping with your help we can all achieve something really special and your donations will certainly help in motivation to reach my goal of raising $1000. 

At this point I can’t say I’ve run much more than one lap around the Albert Park Lake, so the challenge is definitely real!

But as of today the training begins, and although I have a bit of a road ahead, it makes it all the better reason to get up, get motivated and do my best for a cause that a lot of us take for granted...

So whether you can offer the chance to restore one persons eyesight, or even just give up the cost of your coffee for the day, every donation counts how ever big or small and I would be forever thankful for your support, motivation and contribution to something so special lead by this Aussie legend. 

A big shout out to Mike Toner for getting me on board... such an inspiration to us all and the Melbourne music industry!!
