Craziness continues

This coming weekend is the Bridge to Brisbane! I will be raising funds for the Brain Foundation again http://fundraise.bridgetobrisbane.com.au/julia_robertson_4 for this one, there is however a bit of a twist.  

This year they are running a "Hero Time" which means for every dollar raised they take 1 second off your Hero Time. The Hero Time is your race time minus the bonus seconds awarded for your fundraising. I will have until midday Friday 31st of August to raise as much money as I can to count towards my "Hero Time"more information here http://fundraise.bridgetobrisbane.com.au/event/b2b2012/hero_time




I have also signed up for the Twilight Bay Run http://www.intrainingevents.com.au/default.asp?contentID=4 September 22! 
I signed up for the  Light the Night walk for the Leukaemia Foundation http://my.leukaemiafoundation.org.au/juliar October 2.
November 3/4 I am also doing the Relay for Life with my family for the Cancer Council. http://qld.cancercouncilfundraising.org.au/personalPage.aspx?registrationID=459922&langPref=en-CA Realy for life is an 18 hour walk because cancer never sleeps.

Updates from my last post,

  • We raised $350 for Ashley's brain surgery. She had her surgery and is now recovering well.
  • We collected 3790 signatures for Peregian Originals and have submitted them to council. It wasn't the outcome we hoped for but at least they haven't cut the event in half.

School is going incredibly well :) In one class I have started on one of next terms subjects because I have completed all the subject in that class for this term. I hope to have another 3 signed off by the end of next week. One of my teachers is trying to talk me into doing the Diploma next year.

OH! I made my first Photographic sale EVER as well. Redbubble is AWESOME. Thank you my friend you know who you are ♥

On Friday my husband and I celebrated our 16th Wedding anniversary. We went out with our youngest son for dinner and had a lovely quiet night as a family. Through four children, the loss of our 5th,  a granddaughter, serious illness and deaths in the family we have managed to hold on to each other and stay afloat. I have people tell me I am amazing for getting through what I have, truth is I would never have been able to do it without the support of my incredible Husband.

Have fun, be safe and enjoy life!
