Matt Lee's Fundraiser:

2015 NEW YORK MARATHON - RUN TO SAVE AUSTRALIA'S ENDANGERED WILDLIFE

THE STORY:

Millions of native Australian animals and plants die each year because they are not as bad-ass as Great White Sharks, saltwater crocodiles, brown snakes, and red-back spiders. This is a huge problem. It is not their fault.  Ultimately, the intimidating reputation of our Australian environment and wildlife is how we keep English cricket supporters away from our Country.

Friends of Australian Wildlife Conservancy is trying to level the playing field by taking action to protect Australia's vibrant biodiversity from an extinction crisis.  In sum, we are a US non-profit working in partnership with the Australian Wildlife Conservancy (an Aussie non-profit) to buy land and manage it effectively for the conservation of Australia's wildlife in iconic places such as the central Australian Outback, the Kimberley and Cape York.  To date, this mission has been a great success - but we must push on to protect our furry friends and plants from wild cats, drop bears, and poisonous animal-eating weeds. 

Over the course of the coming months, I am swimming, riding, and running around New York to raise both awareness and funds for this cause that is very important to me.  My tour of New York begins with a 1.2 mile/1.9 km swim; 56 mile/90 km ride, and a 13.1 mile/21 km run in upstate New York in September. I will then repeat these distances in Long Island in October just for good measure. Finally, my tour finishes with a 26.2 mile/42 km run around the boroughs of New York City.   In the longer term, my plan is to take friends from around the world out to visit these amazing places that we are working hard to preserve so you can see just how far your contribution goes to making a real difference.  

Please donate and help protect Australia’s endangered wildlife and plants!
