  Featured IMP runner
Carla Snow - 2013 squad
 

    


Carla Snow's involvement with IMP was ignited by a strong determination to participate in a physical and mental challenge to highlight that anything is possible.

Originally from Newcastle, NSW, Carla was part of the 2013 New York Marathon squad. She is passionate about education and now lives in Sydney after accepting her dream job working in a Sydney school.

"I have always wanted to have a positive impact on the younger generations coming through and I wanted to inspire the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students at my school to believe and achieve through both education and sport.

 

"I am responsible for teaching senior students Sport, Lifestyle and Recreation Studies as well as Fitness.

"Our school is in partnership with Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience (AIME) and I have numerous opportunities to develop both personally and professionally," Carla said

Her advice for young Indigenous Australians is simple."Education is key. Knowledge is power. Embrace education as best you can and make the most of the opportunities you have."


Carla will be lining up in the 10km event in the Coffs Harbour Running Festival on 7 September and encourages all Indigenous people to adopt active and healthy lifestyles.

"The New York City Marathon was easily the best day of my life.  I have formed friendships that will last a lifetime.  Personally IMP helped me gain the confidence and self-belief that I could achieve anything I put my mind to.

"IMP has changed my life immensely."
