Family inspires challenge
DANIEL Caporn will be thinking of his late grandfather when he tries to run 160km over 24 hours.
He sees the distance he’ll attempt at the Joondalup Wanneroo Relay for Life on October 20 and 21 as the “ultimate challenge”.
“I am currently in the process of joining the army, so I saw the 24-hour challenge as something that will strengthen my mind and body,” he said.
“After losing my grandfather earlier this year, I saw the Relay for Life as a great opportunity to honour him. I will be dedicating my relay to my grandfathers and aunty, who all battled cancer.
“These are people I looked up to my whole life and took inspiration from. I’m extremely proud to be able to run for them. Not only am I running for my family, but for everyone that has been affected by cancer.”
Daniel’s goal is to raise more than $2000 for the Cancer Council WA through the fundraiser.
But while personal goals such as Daniel’s motivate everyone involved with the Relay for Life, it’s the contribution of the whole community which helps the event build towards its overall goal of more than $300,000 raised to help fight cancer.
