Luke McD's Break Neck Speed GOR Marathon 2020 for Fred Hollows
In January of this year I had a silly accident playing with my six-year-old son. I attempted a backflip and failed landing on my head and breaking my neck. This simple miss happ while having fun help me realise just how precious life is and how lucky I am to have a fully functioning body. I vowed to appreciate my life more than ever before from that day on. When the opportunity came to do this fundraiser event, I saw it as a great way to give back to people who do not have what I do. Break my neck failing a backflip three months later making the half marathon!
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.
