And he'd like your help.June 13, 2014 3:11am
Aaron Gallagher is soon to set off on a long run, and he’d like your help.
Mr Gallagher will depart from Fitzroy on July 5 and plans to arrive at the Sydney Opera House about two weeks later. He expects to be in Seymour en route on July 6.
The event is a fundraiser for Cystic Fibrosis Australia, a genetic disorder that exists within Mr Gallagher’s family. He hopes to raise at least $20 000 for the cause.
‘‘I have a (20-year-old) cousin who just this year underwent a double lung transplant in the hopes of exceeding the current life expectancy of 35 years,’’ he said.
There are plenty of ways you can donate and/or keep in touch with his progress. You can ‘‘like’’ his Facebook page (aaronultramarathon), donate at https://supportingcfa.everydayhero.com/au/aaron or even watch his impressive video on You Tube (search for ‘‘Aaron Ultra Marathon’’).
