Story

 

 

 

  My name is Jacqueline Millard and I live in Canberra. I am a fit and healthy 65 year old retired school teacher. I enjoy spending time with my 3 young grandchildren and like to think, by living an active life, I am a role model to them.

 

Most years I travel to Sydney to participate in the City to Surf. My daughter joined me this year and we had a great time. Every year participants are encouraged to make a donation to a charity. I enjoy the atmosphere of the day and the community spirit.

 

One of my passions is travelling which I have been able to continue during my retirement.

 

As a way of travelling around Australia I have decided to do a half marathon in every state or territory over one year.

 

 I have always wanted to do more for our indigenous people. Trying to work out what that could be was a bit of a dilemma.

 

I had heard of Rob de Castella's work with the Indigenous Marathon Foundation and was inspired by the wonderful stories of the participants and the amazing outcomes that were being achieved. My dilemma was over. I knew what was to be done.

 

So, this year, in 2020, I will be giving myself the challenge of running a half marathon in every state or territory of Australia. Along the way some of my friends and family are going to join me (there is always the 5km walk).I will also be exploring the local area and joining up with some camping/walking tours in the days after the running event.

 

 I would be very appreciative if you could sponsor me per event over the year. All donations go to Footprints which is the Indigenous Marathon Foundation's charity. I have 8 half marathons to complete and my first is on the 12th January in Hobart (Tasmania) at the Cadbury Marathon Event. Travelling around Australia I will continue with The Australian Running Festival (April, ACT), the Adelaide half marathon (May, South Australia), RunFun Rottnest Running Festival (June, Western Australia), Gold Coast half marathon (July, Queensland), Australian Outback Marathon, Uluru (July, Northern Territory) and the Sydney Running Festival (September, NSW). My eighth and final half marathon will be in October at the Melbourne Marathon Festival (Victoria).

UPDATE:First run completed! One down seven to go. Completed the Cadbury half marathon in Hobart, Tasmania on a beautiful sunny day and enjoyed the amazing scenery along the way. My good friends, Vicky and John, joined in the fun by completing the 5 kilometre walk. I'm off to walk and camp on Maria Island for 4 days. Thank you to all my friends and family who have made donations. Next run is on Sunday, April 4 th in Canberra.

Thank you, Jacqueline Millard
