Getting up reasonably early on a Sunday morning is not usually something I do, but for this particular one I did, to join Cam and the girls to complete the Run For Refugees, as part of the Melbourne Marathon. Despite the rain, and flooded track, we made it, which was such a special feat for Cam. An amazing effort!
The event raised $205,031 for the Asylum Seekers Resource Centre, which is amazing. A centre run by more volunteers than paid staff, and a place that provides services to those in need without any government funds. Don't worry if you didn't get to donate then, cos you can help them continue their work, and secure a long term premises through their Home Of Hope Christmas Appeal.
