My name is Jake Ward and on November 1st 2016 I will be going on a huge 1500km run form Gold Coast QLD to my home in Cranbourne, VIC to raise much needed awareness and funds for NBCF.
I will be running 50kms a day, every day for a month.
11 years ago I tragically lost my beautiful cousin Samantha (aged 31) to this horrible disease, Samantha was such an amazing person that went far too soon.
5 years later my beautiful Aunty Vera was diagnosed with breast cancer and after a long battle and winning she ended up losing her life.
This is my third run for NBCF, in 2013 I ran 110kms in under 19 hours to raise just over $8k and in 2014 I went on a 1000km journey from Sydney Opera House to my house in Cranbourne to raise just over $40k.
Although I cannot bring my family back, due to this inspiration of my strong family I am willing to put my body through an epic journey to help fight this disease, PLEASE SHARE THIS STORY TO GIVE IT THE BEST CHANCE TO RAISE AWARENESS & MUCH NEEDED FUNDS!!!!!!!!!!!
I am aiming to raise $51.725.95 which will give me a grand total of $100,000 over 3 mammoth runs.
