What is Run for Anne?
In May 2012, Anne passed away after a 7 year battle with Leukaemia, more major strokes than you can count, and innumerable side effects and secondary illnesses. To everyone who knew her, she was the epitome of strength and grace. In her last months, her children (Clare, Jono and Richard) spoke to her about doing a run for her. At the time, they hoped she might be there at the finish line to cheer them on. She tried to tell her husband that he should enter her in the wheelchair event. She was so happy for us to help promote knowledge about younger victims of serious illness – selflessly of course.

Clare is a former student from Strathcona B.G.G.S who was in one of my sister’s year levels at school. 


Interested in fundraising for the Leukaemia Foundation?! If you’ve signed up to run/shuffle/walk you can complete the following instructions and also register to raise funds. If you would like to fundraise, Claire has passed on some info to help you out – please make sure you register yourself at everydayhero according to Clare’s instructions and pass this link to everyone you know!

This run is in Anne’s honour and in her name. Join in for a good cause on 21st July 2013, donating, participating, cheering, or drinking/bidding afterwards.
