There will be no roads to cross and there will be an aid station (hydration, nutrition) on course.

Run 4 Cover! 42kms under 4 hours for 40 beds

Imagine being able to put a roof over someone’s head for $105. Backpack beds for homeless is exactly that. Help me raise $4200 to fund 40 backpack beds given to homeless Aussies who are turned away from shelters.

I’ll be running my first marathon to help and will be chipping in also. UPDATE! Although the Gold Coast Marathon Event has been cancelled for 2020, I will still be running the course on the day as a commitment to myself and to this fundraiser.

Backpack Bed for Homeless provides emergency relief Backpack Beds to street sleeping homeless people without shelter. They work in partnership with 700+ homeless agencies across Australia to reach homeless people who do not have any other form of accommodation. The Backpack Bed is study proven to improve health, dignity, sleep, warmth, comfort and safety.

 Awarded a 2011 Australian Human rights award by the Australian Human Rights Commission.

Help me raise $4200 to deliver 40 back pack beds to homeless people without shelter. 

Run 4 Cover will be my first marathon of 42km with a goal to complete it in under 4 hours. 

Thank you to my Supporters
