  Featured IMP runner
Georgia Gleeson - 2013 squad
 
    


Crossing the finish line of a marathon is just the start of a new journey for IMP runners.  They return to their communities to inspire the future of Indigenous people and share the benefits of leading a healthy lifestyle.

Georgia Gleeson, finished the New York Marathon in 2013, is now a fully qualified personal trainer and has spread the running bug to local Indigenous women in her home town of Queanbeyan.

Georgia trained the women for their first ever 5km run at the Mother’s Day Classic in Canberra in May. 

She was overwhelmed by the dedication the women showed to their training.

“I had good attendance from the start right through to the end. The women vary in age, from 23 to 52. They are mothers and grandmothers, some who couldn’t run 90 seconds to start with and can now run a full 30 minutes.

“One lady suffers from asthma, depression and anxiety, and another has Rheumatoid arthritis.

It has been an absolute privilege to train these women,” she said.


Georgia holds regular fitness groups in Queanbeyan and is dedicated to continuing to share the importance and benefits of adopting an active and healthy lifestyle.
