Earlier in the year SFL journalist Andrew Paloczi wrote a story about Dandenong’s Jake Ward who planned to run 1000km’s in a bid to raise funds for breast cancer research.
True to his word, on September 29th Jake commenced his run in Sydney, 1000km’s away from his Cranbourne home where he will cross the finish line on October 14th. To ensure Jake arrives home on the 14th he will need to cover 65km’s for the first 15 days, finishing off with a comparatively kind 25km’s on the final day. Jake set a target of raising $25,000 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation and with 6 days to go he has just passed the $27,000 mark, an amazing effort!
You can keep up to date with Jake’s amazing journey below.
