Disaster relief and recovery

Relief Run - pound the pavement for Bushfire Relief

We're putting 100% of the proceeds from Relief Run Entries all over the world towards helping the Red Cross in their bushfire relief efforts. Dealing with an emergency can be stressful and exhausting and recovering from a disaster is a complex process that may take months, even years to overcome. Red Cross supports people through their recovery by being there to provide practical and emotional support and information.

Helping people who have been affected by disasters is really important to me and I’d love your support. Please help me by donating to my fundraising page.

Thanks!

Thank you to my Sponsors

Hi Samantha, my niece and I put in some miles for you guys yesterday in a rather icy Glasgow after seeing that Jo & the Westminster Lodge team in St Albans UK were running to support you. Given the ice we did more walking than running in our 12 miles but we nailed it and donating to support your fundraising & this work of the Res Cross #reliefrun
