Scott Thompson's Fundraiser:

"Gunna" Run in Loving Memory of Peter

Peter was renowned for saying he was "gunna" do things. In the end my parents made that his nic name. Thus, in honoring his life, I have decided that I am "gunna" do somthing too. On May 20th I will run along the Great Ocean Road to the Apollo Bay Hotel, a beautiful stretch of road that Peter grew to love.

We also know that when "Gunna" got around to doing something, he didn't do it half-ass. So neither will I. For a few years now I've been telling my friends that I was gunna run a half-marathon, but why run 21 hilly km's, when I could drag myself through 45 tortorous ones instead.

We also know that Peter's family meant everything to him. Peter was a dedicated husband, companion, father, and friend. What better way to honor his memory than by chipping in to support those he cared about most. By the day of the marathon I hope to have raised 15,000 dollars for Maggie and the kids and therefore invite you to click on the donation button on this page and make any contribution you can.

Peter would have loved watching me suffer as I run hundreds of Km's over the course of the next few weeks. I will be updating this site with pictures and video from training so feel free to enjoy my pain. Please spread the word and I hope to see a few of you for a beer at the finish line.
