Mother of two, Ellen Schwab, initially started running as a way to lose weight, get healthy and become a better role model for her two boys.
 
In 2015, she combined her running efforts with a fundraiser for Bowel Cancer Australia.

"My Nanna died of bowel cancer and there is a strong family history, so being able to do something to contribute just feels right," Ellen said.

"I set a new personal best by nearly 20 seconds in the 2015 Canberra Times Fun Run. I also surpassed my fundraising goal of $400 by about $25."

Ellen has previously supported Bowel Cancer Australia, having participated in Meat Free Week. Thank you Ellen for your continued support and help raising awareness and funds for Bowel Cancer Australia!
