Byron to Bondi Coastathlon | Surf Life Saving Australia Fund
Join me in supporting The Surf Life Saving Foundation (SLSA) as I run my way down the coast of New South Wales. During July and August I will be solo-running 900kms/550mi from Byron Bay to Bondi Beach, with the assistance of a few mates crewing me down the coastline. Depending on the day and terrain, I will be covering 35km/22m per day.
Australia's famous coastline has given so much to me over the years. I have spent hours swimming, training, and patrolling at Bondi Beach and cannot imagine life without ocean swimming. In January 2020 I joined Bondi Surf Bathers Life Saving Club in efforts to become more involved in the community and become a volunteer lifesaver. This has been one of the best aspects to moving to Australia and I have gained so much from this amazing community of people dedicated to keeping our beaches safe; this is my small part in giving back to SLSA and the Bondi community.
Your contributions will help in numerous ways, but here are few primary examples:
$60 is the cost to give volunteer surf lifesavers the training they need to be proficient in CPR each year.
$78 helps towards the cost of equipment to our patrols.
$96 gives volunteer surf life savers a vital 3rd day of training each year.
$260 is the annual cost of training a surf lifesaver in First Aid & Advanced Resuscitation.
