Rowdy's running in the GOR Marathon 2020 for Fred Hollows
This year I've decided to run a half marathon (for the first time!) to raise money for the Fred Hollows foundation with the Thick as Thieves team.
I've never done anything like this before and would love your support!
So you might be saying yeah, that's pretty cool Jess but who is Fred Hollows? Well I'm glad you asked!
The Fred Hollows Foundation 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.
My eyesight isn't the best and I wear contacts everyday; without them my vision is blurry and it's really frustrating not being able to see! We are lucky to live in a country that has a great healthcare system.
But imagine living in a developing country where this is non existent.
There are over 25 million people who are blind on this planet - but a simple procedure which costs as little as $25 can RESTORE their sight and change their lives for ever!!!!!WOW, say it backwards... WOW! That's something I want to be a part of.
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.
I'm not asking you to do the half marathon, but what I am asking for is your support!
Any donation is greatly appreciated!
