"Last Saturday I did my first triathlon"

If you told me six months ago that I’d be doing a triathlon, I’d have told you that you’re crazy! But when Dad got his new lungs last year at St Vincent’s Hospital Sydney, I was motivated to quit smoking and spend less time in the pub!

I started running in early August and have picked up cycling and swimming as well. And last Saturday I did my first triathalon – a 750m swim, 20km cycle and 5km run!

I did this all to raise money for the St Vincent’s Heart Lung Transplant Unit – to give back and say thanks to the doctors and nurses for the incredible care they gave to my dad when he had his lung transplant.

I really hope you’ll sponsor my triathlon and please consider registering to become an organ donor.
