Running for my mate Kate

 

In 2017 I will be returning to Katoomba to run Ultratrail Australia.

This year I will be running the 100km event for the OI society. I have seen what life is like for someone with OI through my good friend Kate.

Research has improved the quality of life for people with OI dramatically. A person diagnosed with this disease standing on the podium at the Rio Paralympics in 2016 is an attestation to the advancements.

The 100km Ultramarathon can take a massive toll on the body which can lead to a small glimpse into the aches and pains of OI suffers experience constantly in their day to day life.

Every dollar will help us take a step closer to beating this disease.
All donations will go directly to the OI society.

Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a genetic disorder that causes a person's bones to break easily, often from little or no apparent trauma. OI is also called "brittle bone disease." OI varies in severity from person to person, ranging from a mild type to a severe type that causes death before or shortly after birth.
