My target 12000 Steps

Today is #worldsanfilippoday

To raise awareness and funds for Sanfilippo I made a promise to walk 12,000 steps a day in November. 

Confession Time - while I had all the best intentions there seemed to be something come up every other day that prevented me from getting my steps in. On the 12th of November I was shocked to see I had averaged just 8000 steps per day! 😱

Feeling overwhelmed with guilt that night I thought about Kyuss, my best friend Nikkis little boy who has Sanfilippo syndrome, and the challenges he faces on a daily basis. I also thought about what a gorgeous soul and an absolute fighter he is! He’s truly an inspiration and I decided I just could not, under any circumstances, let him down. 

So in an effort to catch up, I began stepping every spare minute I had, between work and school drop offs and even on the day of a 20km family bike ride I stepped as much as i possibly could. I achieved more than I ever thought possible.. in fact I smashed it.. 

in just 4 days I completed over 100,000 steps!! 🙌🙌 

more than 68kms in just 4 days!!

Averaging over 25,000 steps per day over the last 4 days has meant that after my slow start I’ve kept my promise and..

 🙌🙌I did it! I have averaged over 12,000 steps per day so far in November! 🙌🙌

I am sore, I am tired, I am pushed to my limit, but so are Kyuss, Nikki and their Sanfilippo friends.  As will future children and their families be without vital funding for research. 

please show your support and donate if you can.

I am fundraising for a future where no child suffers from Sanfilippo Syndrome.

I am doing STEPS FOR SANFILIPPO this November! It's going to be a big challenge. But it's nothing compared to the challenge facing kids with Sanfilippo.

100% of your donation will go towards funding vital research projects that show potential to halt disease progression; repair damage caused by the condition; or improve the quality of life for children suffering from Sanfilippo.

All donations over AU $2 are fully tax deductible.

Thanks so much for your support.
