Quick as Thieves

I'm fundraising for the Fred Hollows Foundation

Currently 43 million people around the world are blind but 9 out of 10 don't have to be!

A simple procedure costing as little as $25 in most developing countries can restore their sight and change their lives and the lives of their families and communities for ever!

I run at the Quick As Thieves event with Mike Toner on 25th November and together we raise money for The Fred Hollows Foundation so they are able to continue 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

What it means to me

The Quick As Thieves marathon, the underlying reason behind my running & the running of many other legends in the electronic music industry. 

There’s a certain stigma associated with the electronic music community, we are the late night party people of Melbourne, however that doesn’t mean we cannot be in our best shape ever. We are the hospo staff, the DJ’s, the promoters, the touring agents, the managers & the dance floor slayers. We run your parties (remember them?) And now we run marathons, too. 

In November many of our electronic music community will be running at this incredible event to raise money for the Fred Hollows Foundation. 

$25 can restore something as powerful as eyesight in developing countries. We as a community aim to raise $500k, that’s 20,000 people! 

I personally aim to run the marathon in sub 3h30m & raise $4000. I’ve been training hard and simply cannot wait to challenge myself and complete this personal milestone, whilst raising money for an incredible cause. 

For those who remember I suffered from a stress fracture in my tibia this time last year training for this, after training too hard too quickly. It was misdiagnosed resulting in 6 weeks of a full leg cast, a nearly broken leg and being unwell & out of work for months which hugely effected me. So as you can imagine completing it this year is huge for me & I most certainly have a point to prove. 

We’ve copped it the absolute worst during this Pandemic & this community for many kept us sane. Get around us guys & we’ll be forever thankful. Thank you Mike Toner for all the work you do behind the scenes, you’re a true leader & I’ll follow you for all 42km, if I can keep up. ??
