**A MASSIVE Thank you to EVERYONE involved in this Event, whether it was support and encouragement towards me, support towards SBH Qld in the form of donated goods or money, or any kind of support that was given towards this magic time in my life. Because of YOU, $3275 was raised! ($500 was gifted to Sporting Dreams, and $3225 went to SBH Qld – an AMAZING effort from all involved!) **
As my fitness Goals progressed, I started to think…hmmm..maybe I could do something ‘bigger’ with this, wouldnt it be great to be able to raise money for Charity, through me striving towards these Goals. I thought of all those people out there who are undertaking epic Adventures for Charity – and I wanted that….in my own way. As someone with a disability who has been supported by charity over the years, just to get through my daily life, I also wanted to ‘give back’ to charity, myself.
I thought, what better way, to connect these Chasing my Dreams Fitness Goals, raising money for charity, AND ‘giving back’ to a charity which has given me (and countless others!) SO much support over the years – than to base my Fundraiser Event around SBH Qld (Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Qld) http://spinabifida.org/ , and raise much-needed funds for this absolutely INVALUABLE supportive charity which gives so much out to others, in way of AMAZING support towards those of us with Spina Bifida & Hydrocephalus!! 🙂
And so my SBH Qld (Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Qld) Fundraising Event was born!

Wow…the thought of achieving these three Fitness Goals, doing these 3 things for the first time in my 42 years of life, especially in such a special way through this Event….takes my breath away…
