In October the Johnson family's world was turned upside down after finding out their precious little girl Rylea, who just turned three,has cancer... To help our good friends niece I'm running 21km to raise money for the family and we need YOUR help.

In October the Johnson family's world was turned upside down after finding out their precious little girl Rylea, who just turned three, has cancer. 

In less than 24hrs the family was rushed to Melbourne and placed at the Royal Children's Hospital. After many tests the family were told that their stay at RCH will be a lengthy one. It is uncertain when Rylea and her mum will be able to return home, which is in Gippsland (a 3hr drive from the RCH). Rylea will undergo several treatments and surgeries to assist in her recovery. Rylea's father and 2 older brothers will juggle work, school and endless trips to Melbourne to spend time with Rylea and her mum. All of this will not only place a huge emotional strain on the family, but will also hit the family financially too. 

Rylea is the niece of our very close family friends so I felt inspired to help. I took up running 2 years ago to improve my own health. For many months family and friends have been urging me to run my first half marathon. So what could be better than to run my first half marathon and dedicate it to raising money to help Rylea on her road to recovery.

On the 30th of November 2013 I will be running 21km to show my support for Rylea and her family. You can help by sponsoring my run. Any amount, no matter how small, will help.

A location and details will be provided shortly. The run will be followed by a picnic in one of Melbourne's many beautiful parklands. If anybody would like to join me for part or all of the run (walk or ride!) then please feel free to come along. I will add your name to this page if you decide to join me!

This campaign has the support of Rylea's family. If you have any questions please let me know.

Thanks for your support.
