Brad needs your help as he runs to Cape York

Consumer 9 January 2012

22-year-old Canberran Brad Carron-Arthur found an interesting way to kick off his new year, undertaking a grueling 4000km solo run from Canberra to Cape York to raise money for AFFIRM: The Australian Foundation for Mental Health Research.

“There are two forces driving me. Firstly the innate drive for adventure and to challenge myself is what has me daring to run so far and to such a treacherous place. However, I am not without my sense of purpose, I am also driven to use all this energy and motivation productively.”

Brad began his epic on January 1, and according to his Twitter page he’s currently around Nowra.

If you want frequent updates or to show some lovely local support, you can also check out his Facebook and/or Flickr pages.

To help Brad reach his goal of $10,000, donations can be made online – it’s for a good cause.
