We’re taking part in Walk for Epilepsy around Australia because...

Sven and I want to help make a difference for people living with epilepsy. As parents of a child who has epilepsy we know how much this impacts them and their family. We have been so fortunate to benefit from advances in epilepsy treatments, but so much more needs to be done towards ultimately finding a cure for epilepsy. This research is significantly underfunded. Please help us by giving whatever you can using the 'Give Now' button. The more people that know about the walk (we are aiming to run our kms!) the greater the impact, so please also spread the word by sharing our page with your friends and family. Thank you in advance for your generosity, it means so much to us all xx

My Updates

Conquering the headland!

Thursday 21st Oct
Our month of rising awareness for Epilepsy is nearly complete. Running has been tougher this week, some days it’s challenging to get out there, but then I see this gorgeous girl and it’s easy to find the motivation! This week Imi managed to complete one of her own challenges, walking up onto the headland near our house, something she’s not been able to do since her surgery last year. She doesn’t realise it, but she’s extraordinary and we’re so proud of her! This is why we’re doing this, raising awareness for Epilepsy so that Imi and others with Epilepsy can continue to smash their goals and live extraordinary lives. Once again, thank you so much for all your support, it means so much 💕

Half marathon week!

Thursday 14th Oct
Another week of Running for Epilepsy completed! Sven and both managed to thrash out a half marathon on the weekend to kick start the kms for the week, woohoo!! Running really helps me think things through and find perspective,. This week I’ve been reflecting on how fortunate we are to have been on this epilepsy journey….sounds crazy I know, but it’s taught me to appreciate so much. This week I want to say a huge thanks to our amazing family and friends who have supported us along the way. Especially to my mum Mary. She has taught me so much about love and life, how to be strong and stay positive. She has been there by our side every step of this journey and I know I couldn’t have done it without her…thanks mum xxx

Week one run update

Thursday 7th Oct
Week one of Running for Epilepsy completed! Sven’s managed a huge 48.9kms!! And I’ve scrapped in with 34kms. Total so far 82.9kms Still a fair way to go to achieve our km goal but thanks to our amazing friends and family we have smashed our fund raising goal and importantly have helped to raise awareness of Epilepsy. Thanks so much to all of you for your support and generosity! We are so so appreciative ☺️
