Help me raise $3,500 for Endeavour Foundation's Home Run!

I'm very excited about taking part in the Endeavour Foundation Home Run Challenge, walking my neighbourhood and raising funds to help give people with intellectual disability (PWID) a home of their own.

As part of Canon’s team, I’m hoping to raise $3,500 to add to our group fundraising goal of $10,000. I probably won’t cover as much ground as some because I’m recovering from a back injury but I figure every little step will still make a big difference, so I’m aiming to gently walk at least 6km this June.

Raising money to provide quality housing for PWID is a very personal cause for me. Seven years ago my brother moved from a depressing aged care type of housing to an incredible shared home centred around Supported Independent Living (SIL), and he is now thriving in ways I never dreamed would be possible. In the image above, he is posing outside his gorgeous house. My brother is living his best life and that’s exactly what Endeavour Foundation provides for their own clients – an equal-access opportunity to thrive! 

Please sponsor me today with any donation you can spare. I promise it will be money that is very well spent.

So honoured to be named Endeavour's Challenger of the Week

Thursday 9th Jun
I could not be more thrilled to be recognised as Endeavour's Challenger of the Week! This is really down to my incredible supporters and my brother for allowing me to share his journey of independence. All donations today are being DOUBLED, so I would really appreciate one big push from my network to help me bring this thing home!!!

Endeavour Foundation Home Run Challenge (2 – 11 June) > Tackling the chronic shortage of supported independent living spaces in Australia with a four-year goal to provide homes for 600 PWID. 


Making one final goal stretch & aiming for $3.5k!

Thursday 9th Jun

With donation-matching in play today, I managed to smash my ambitious $3k target, so I'm going to make one final major push for fundraising and stretch my goal to $3.5k. Please help me make hit this new target by dropping any $$ can spare, or by my page to your network. Raising funds to give people with intellectual disability (PWID) a home of their own is already an incredible cause, but it’s even better when donation-matching will make your money go even further!!

Can I raise $3k?! I won't know if I don't try...

Monday 6th Jun
I'm absolutely astounded by the deluge of sponsors jumping in to contribute to my Home Run challenge. Having blown past my $2.5k fundraising target, I'm ambitiously pushing my goal to $3k and asking for more support. 

Every step I take, and every dollar I raise will help build modern, accessible houses so that people with disability can choose where and with whom they live. I can't think of a better reason to stretch my target :-) 

Raising my target to $2.5k, thank you to all my sponsors so far!

Thursday 2nd Jun

So many generous sponsors helped me smash my $1.5k Home Run target, so I have moved the goal to $2.5k! I would love a few more $$ today while the donation-matching offer is still in play. In my previous post I shared a video so you can understand just why I am fundraising so hard to help to give people with intellectual disability a home of their own! The star of this mini movie is my brother Andrew. He lives with an intellectual disability, and there were so many barriers to his independence until he moved into a place of his own. His opening line always chokes me up: “I live in a Dolphin Cove… a home.” Those two words ‘a home’ hold so much more meaning than most people would ever know. Until this house became his home, Andrew lived in an aged-care style facility that held him back. From this new home base he has blossomed and become so confident about taking control of his own life. In fact, this little movie was part of his independence journey, becoming a Council for Intellectual Disability spokesperson for the My Choice Matters campaign.

About to smash my fundraising goal, so time to raise it!

Friday 27th May
My immense gratitude to the folks donating to my Home Run page ❤️ Your dollars will help people with intellectual disability thrive in homes of their own, so every contribution is a life-changer. Thanks to the generosity of my sponsors, I have almost reached my $1,000 fundraising goal today, so I moved my target to $1,500!!

Thank you to my Sponsors
