Galston, Glenorie and Hills Rural News - - News -

Res­i­dents may re­mem­ber Greg Bow­er­man who was the hair­dresser in Glenorie for many years. Well his daugh­ter, Melinda, is do­ing the Big Red Run 2016 and fundrais­ing to find a cure for Type 1 Di­a­betes. The Big Red Run is Aus­tralia's first and only 250km multi day race. It's based in the Out­back, in the Simp­son Desert, the run is over 6 stages and starts on 25th June. Here is Melinda's mes­sage:

This is a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity to raise much needed sup­port for such a preva­lent con­di­tion in our kids and young peo­ple. Please help sup­port find­ing a cure so more kids can lead healthy and ac­tive lives, even if they choose not to run across the desert!

I'm also do­ing this to show my 2 girls they can achieve amaz­ing things and the benefits of an ac­tive life­style. For my ever sup­port­ive and lov­ing hus­band who never gives me a "wtf" look when I come up with things like this and my in­spi­ra­tion - my Dad. His love of the desert and his strength and stub­born­ness not to give into his own chal­lenges. His words "any­one can do any­thing if they re­ally want to" ring true in every­thing I do.
