"In 2017, my dad lost his battle with bowel cancer. Unfortunately, he was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer and was already in the late stages of the disease by time he received his diagnosis. 

I have always wanted to run a marathon and felt this was a great opportunity to share my dad's story and create awareness about the disease.
I didn't have a financial goal for this run, but I'm stoked to have raised just over $4k for Bowel Cancer Australia. My main purpose for this run was to promote awareness and the importance of screening.
It's really great to hear of people taking this message on board and encouraging their family and friends to get tested.
So stoked to have completed this run and achieved my goal. First and hopefully not my last!" ~ Jonathan.
