What inspired me to fundraise?

As a CE for a large health organisation I feel incredibly fortunate to still have the use of my hands and legs and I want to dedicate my dream of completing the Hillary Tenzing Mt Everest Marathon to improve the lives of those affected by spinal cord injury or impairment. I am also excited to represent our company in support of the NZ Spinal Trust whose values align so well with our own.

You can make a difference today in the lives of Kiwis living with a spinal cord injury or impairment (SCI) by supporting my fundraiser.

Cheers,

Russell Simpson

I’m pretty excited and very much daunted by the prospect of the challenge that awaits. Training has begun around the hills of Wellington, a good training ground for the world’s highest marathon, a marathon in which only two thirds of applicants actually make the start line! Follow my progress and please help support my fundraising … Continue reading The Training Has Begun
