Matthew's wife Natalie is a dreamer and when he announced that he planned to run a marathon the first thing she said was “if you’re going to do it, you need to fundraise and make the most of it!”.
''Although Natalie hasn’t accessed her Dream yet, knowing that an organisation like this exists keeps her looking forward to something special when the time comes. It keeps her (and our little family) optimistic for the future'' said Matthew.
Matthew is took part in the Canberra Times Marathon Festival on 16 April 2023 and set up a fundraising page to support Dreams2Live4.
It was Matthews first marathon, and he clocked an amazing time of 4hrs.30mins!
And, Matthew raised an incredible $2689 for Dreams2Live4.
A huge heartfelt thank you to all of Matthew’s friends and family who kindly donated to his campaign and who together have helped to support the charity and make dreams come true.
If you would like to run/walk, fundraise and join the Canberra event there are lots of distances to choose from. Find out more HERE
