I’m taking on The Long Run!

This September, I’m taking part in The Long Run.

I’ve committed to conquering 72KMs to raise funds and awareness for Aussie men and families fighting prostate cancer.

Please support me by making a tax deductible donation to Prostate Cancer Foundation of Australia.

Together, we can make sure our fathers, brothers, sons, husbands and mates will be there for the long run.

My Updates

Nearly There!

Monday 28th Sep
Just another quick shout out to all of those of you involved in Team Ross and the Longest Run. Thank you all so very much once again. What started out to be a breif discussion between Rach and myself about me completing this challenge and maybe raising a few thousand dollars has snowballed into what has transpired over the last 28 days. We have been overwhelmed with the response from all of you guys. The team spirit, encouragement and generosity of each and every member has been nothing short of extraordinary! We live in a very special place with very special people and we will be forever grateful for that. Thank you once again. Only 2 days to go. Lets Go, Lets Go!


Lets Go!!

Big H - The Sea Lion and Doubling Down

Friday 18th Sep
Another great walk this morning with this Legend and look at what we found on East Beach. This guys was a bit tired, like big H at the end of our walk. Today every donation recieved is matched by PCFA corporate sponsors Tyre Power and ATOM. I feel a little awkward to continue to ask for support given the amount that we have recieved so far, the generosity has been extraordinary. However if you know of anyone who would like to donate today is the day to do it as it will be doubled. Thank you all so very much once again Legends. Lets Go, Lets Go!!

Happy Fathers Day

Sunday 6th Sep
Happy Fathers Day everyone. Had a wonderful family walk of 4 kms this morning on the magnificent East Beach. Just shuffled out 4kms on the Treadmill as well. Struggled big time today (Old Bloody Ankle) but managed to get Fathers Day 4km done. Massive thanks to all you Legends for the motivation, the community spirit of this challenge is unbeleivable. Special thanks to Steve and Emma Watty, their strength of character is phenominal and an inspiration. Xx

Blown Away

Friday 4th Sep
Not only literally (it's bloody windy here in Port Fairy at the moment) but we are completely blown away by the amount of support!
Rach and I are immensely grateful to all those who have donated; each and every little bit makes a difference, so a massive THANK YOU to all of you.
We are also blown away at just how many LEGENDS have joined our team!
It has brought us a lot of joy to see you all out there running, walking and riding; knowing that collectively we are making a difference raising money for prostate cancer research, while at the same time keeping fit!
Shout out to the Pollock kids who, in addition to adding up the kms, are selling their unwanted books/toys/clothes and donating all proceeds to this great cause!
Keep running/walking/riding and keep spreading the word LEGENDS! 
Again, THANK YOU!
We'll definitely be planning a Covid approved celebration at the end of this, that's for sure!

Day 1 - What a start!

Tuesday 1st Sep
Hello Team Ross, just thought I would touch base after Day 1 to thank everyone again for their support. Rachel and myself have been blown away by the generosity, kindness and community spirit that this challenge has generated so far. Evidence to the amount of support was provided to me earlier when I was scrolling on the home page of The Long Run website. Apparently there is a Leader Board and amazingly Team Ross is sitting 3rd on the Ladder. I am of the understanding that this Leader Board is for every registered team in Australia, so this is an amazing effort, and all thanks to you guys. Lets keep up the great work. Thanks again Legends. Lets Go, Lets Go!

Thank you to my Sponsors
