Inspired by friends who were training for a marathon and wanting to fulfil a long-held ambition, Jess and her husband Dean signed up for the Sydney Blackmores Half Marathon in support of Bowel Cancer Australia.

“We are a stone cast upon the water to try to create many ripples.”

After tragedy struck close to home for 11year old Tina (name changed on request), she decided to raise funds for a cause that meant a lot to her and her family – Bowel Cancer Australia.
