I will be competing in the Mozart 100 race in Salzburg on June 20th. 100km in the mountains where they filmed the Sound of Music!
I am raising money for the CARES Foundation, an organisation that helps those living with Congenital Adrenal Hyperplasia (CAH). CAH is a family of inherited disorders affecting the adrenal glands. Classical CAH must be detected at birth to avoid an adrenal crisis, which can lead to death. Once detected, CAH can fortunately be managed with medication and, with adequate care, affected individuals go on to live normal lives.
My family has been personally affected by CAH, with my daughter having been born in a country where screening at birth is not done. Through my running I aim to build crucial awareness, and fundraise for a fantastic organisation doing CAH research and support worldwide.
All donations through this site go directly to the CARES Foundation.
