You will be mesmerised and moved by his incredible story of dedication and resilience. His best-selling book ‘Run Like Crazy’ details his remarkable journey to international ultra-athlete; running 52 marathons, in 52 weeks, in 42 countries!
The evening is raising funds for Have Bear Will Run, a registered Australian Charity founded by David King (Year 6 class teacher). Its sole purpose is to provide scholarships that will enhance the education of students who have battled serious illness and wish to pursue tertiary or further education.
A number of years ago while working at the Children’s Hospital, Westmead; David set himself a mission to help cancer-surviving students chase their own education dreams. It all started by running a marathon in every state and territory of Australia with the Bandaged Bear strapped to his back – hence the name Have Bear Will Run.
Since then, the Bear has taken on adventures all over the globe in a bid to raise money for the Lucian Page Scholarship. This important scholarship was set up to honour the memory of a little warrior friend who lost his battle to cancer. In its 6th year now, previous recipients have gone on to follow their own dreams at University as Nurses, Zoologists, Project Managers and Biomedical Engineers.
