WE DID IT!!!! After months of early mornings, long runs and chronic fatigue we completed the 2011 Melbourne Marathon! As race day approached and last minuted nerves set in, advice from Josh and Carmen's heroes and some unexpected media coverage added to the excitement of the event. Thank You for helping us raise $8000.


Tuesday, 4 October 2011


Hey Everyone! We have to say a HUGE Thank You to all of you who've donated so far! We just want to clarify the charities receiving your donations so you know they are going to two great causes!

Josh is running for the Unicorn Foundation

Carmen is running for The Cure For Life Foundation

We know it's a little confusing because our Everyday Hero fundraising site only has one charity on it, but we assure you, your donations are being split 50/50 between both charities.

With only 1 DAY TO GO till THE MARATHON we urge you to get family and friends on board! Remember, you can still donate for the entire week after the big day, so if you can't donate by Sunday you'll still have time! Check out our most recent video below - with advice from Steve Moneghetti and Tamsyn Lewis! We'll be thinking of all of you and your support on the BIG DAY and if you are in Melbourne feel free to come and cheer us on!

Love Carmen and Josh

WEBISODE 4 - Upset Stomach

After struggling through their second 20k run, a nasty bout of food poisoning almost brings Josh to his knees. Even with Carmen doing her best to support him, it looks like training could come to an abrupt end. However that fighting 'WE CAN RUN' spirit keeps spurring them on and it becomes clear that training for a marathon was never going to be easy.
