I'm fundraising for...

I am running 84km overnight coast-to-coast across Bali to help lift-up a disadvantaged community in Bali with the award-winning Bali Children Foundation. Please support me by donating. 

$220 puts an elementary school child through a scholarship for one year.

$100 provides food support and essential vitamins for a malnourished child for 3 months.

My Updates

My Why.

Sunday 22nd May
You can’t.
Self doubt has constantly chased me around the world my whole life. Something I’ve been able to silence on a few occasions. But continues to crawl back into my psyche. This is different. This run is a different animal. The @balihopeultra is 84 km / 53 miles across the entire island of Bali in ONE NIGHT. Coast to coast. This run is bigger then me. This run is bigger then that voice.

Bali has always held a special place in my heart. As a kid I dreamed of living in a hut on the beach & as an adult I made the move here & cut my teeth working with fighters from all over the world. Putting myself in a position to work with some of the greatest fighters of all time. Bali and its magic gave a young kid with a dream a platform to live that dream. It’s time for me to give back. So why not run across the island for an incredible charity like @balichildrenfoundation 

Bali’s beauty attracts people from all corners of the world. Beyond its green rice paddies, world renowned beaches & surf breaks,  there is a dark side. A large portion of the population doesn't have access to proper nutrition or quality education. Being born in one of the greatest countries in terms of opportunity to access both of these, yet being from one of the most unhealthy countries is a strange paradox. I need to change that. At the very least for my adopted home.

My Hope. Every child deserves to have the opportunity to live a happy & healthy life. Every child also deserves equal opportunity regardless of the community they are born into. All of this is impossible without access to quality nutrition and education.  These two things are the building blocks to properly empower their communities, which in turn can completely change the trajectory of their lives. 

Any donation & share is directly impacting the future of the island & the future of these children $220 puts an elementary school child through a scholarship for ONE year. $100 provides food support & essential vitamins for a malnourished child for 3 months  
An entire library upgrade for the school is $1400 & will be named after the donor. Anything helps
