Adam starts his 8 Marathons in 8 Consecutive Days across ALL 8 States and Territories in Australia in honour of Grandma this Sunday.
On 12th February 2013, heaven gained another Angel who was a Mother, Grandma, and Great Grandma.
June Reay was my Grandma, a beautiful, kind hearted woman who fought breast cancer for four years. Through 4 chemo and radiation treatments she never gave up and was always the keystone of our family.
Grandma always said health and family were the most important things in the world. Without them, what do we have?
I have always remembered this and I have implemented this for my entire life. I want to show Grandma that I still carry her in my heart. All the lessons and love that she gave us I want to pass on to others.
I am running 8 Marathons in 8 Days across Australia. I want to inspire those around me to get involved to take care of their health and raising money for Breast Cancer.
For those that know me, you are quite aware that I live and breathe a healthy lifestyle. This is what I am passionate about and what I live to do. I love helping people achieve amazing things. Things they never thought were possible.
You can definitely say that Grandma June Reay played a huge part in leading me to where I am today. So this one is for you Grandma. I will conquer this 8 Marathon journey for you and for everyone else out there who is fighting for their life and for those who want to live a healthier life!
