Support my challenge to save Kiwi hearts

In May, I’m taking part in MyMarathon to raise funds for heart research. This is a cause which is close to my heart ❤️ and more research is definitely needed as I found out when I faced with my own challenges.

I have ischemic heart disease as a result of a rare side effect caused by my radiation treatment for Hodgkin’s lymphoma. I had to have open heart surgery and I will need further interventions in the future. More research is definitely needed the in context cardiac-oncology as well other heart conditions. Please support me to support others as the more we learn, the more we can prevent and treat heart issues in the future.

Completing the MyMarathon will be a challenge for me as damage to my leg muscles from heart medications have meant that walking up slopes and hills is extremely hard. After a lot of gym work, support from friends and a pair of poles I have recently achieved the long-term goal of walking to the top of the Papamoa Hills which is one of my happy places. My goal is to take my heart to the top of the Papamoa hills and touch the trig repeatedly during the May MyMarathon to reach my 42kms so others hearts may beat stronger for longer. If you can support me by donating a little to the cause it would be absolutely wonderful. I am not in a team but I would like of course to raise as much as possible.  Thank you

Such a good cause Chris. If you get up Pap Hills one more time that is an enormous achievement and worthy of My Marathon Success. Any thing else is a bonus.

Hey Aunty Chrissy! Since I was little you’ve been such a strong, kind hearted, supportive and positive person to be around. The amount of respect I have for you is indescribable and the love and care you always give to others motivates me to do the same in my own life. Lots of love, Logan
