Amanda's Gold Coast Half Marathon Fund Run

By GC Marathon Team for The Sanctuary

Hey everyone, I'm asking for your support to help me run the Gold Coast half marathon on Sunday 7th July in UNDER 2 HOURS!  😱  To do this I'll need to average a kilometre in under 6 minutes for 21 kilometres. 😳  Easy for some but I've never run further than 10km (probably 10 years ago) and speed is definitely not my thing. 🐌 This cause is very close to my heart but I need your backing to keep me going at this pace, as it's WAY out of my perceived ability. 💪  

Here's the important stuff....

The Sanctuary Women's refuge is an amazing, privately owned facility located in a beautiful Gold Coast valley.  🌈  Their mission is to empower women and children escaping domestic violence.   All too often pets are left behind in domestic cases and at the hands of the perpetrator simply because there is no other option, The Sanctuary is unique, providing a safe, happy and positive place that also includes care for the family's pets.❤️

Like most refuges they operate on a volunteer basis and are sadly undergoing severe cash-flow problems.  Facilities such as this cost a lot of money to run, unfortunately domestic violence is continuing to increase whilst at the same time refuges such as this are declining.  It is so important to the local community that places like The Sanctuary allow families to be safe and protect the next generation from the cycle of abuse.🙏

I've visited The Sanctuary and they have done so much, yet it still needs a lot of work, if we can raise the $10,000 target they will be able to finish their final family unit, complete with disability cool is that?!

Please get behind me and help me finish the Gold Coast half marathon in under 2 hours ...I won't be able to do it without you! 

Love Amanda ❤️
