Running for Jack

I am running a Virtual Marathon on the 1st August 2020 to raise funds (Aus Dollars) for a    special family    close to my heart and their very sick little boy, Jack.

On Tuesday the 26th May, my dear friends, Louise and Gary Stevens received the shattering news that their beloved Jack had Leukemia. Jack is the youngest of Louise and Gary’s three boys,      and just turned 3 on the 12th June.

Gary and Louise are both health care professionals living in Perth Australia. Louise is unable to work currently and Gary has cut his  hours to be at the hospital all the time.Both taking shifts with Jack and their two boys , Josh and Oliver.

As a result they are suddenly without the income they need to  sustain school fees, mortgage, food and most importantly medical costs for Jack’s treatment.

Jack’s treatments have begun and this little boy still has a long road ahead of him. He has          JMML which is a rare form of Leukemia. After starting chemotherapy, Doctors are now             searching for a  match for a stem cell transplant. At this point, not a lot is known about his         future treatment, the time it will take or even the  locations where it will occur.

I will be raising funds alongside Louise and Gary’s family and  friends to help keep this special family going. All funds raised will  go directly to the Stevens family for any needed travel for                   treatment and living costs.

Please sponsor my Virtual Marathon on 1st August and help Jack

When: 5:30am on 1st August 2020
Distance: 42.2km
Where: Bowen Road, Midlevels, Hong Kong

Follow me on the Apple Activity App and follow my run. Details  to follow shortly.

It won’t be fast, it won’t be pretty but it will be for Jack!
