Katrina has decided to get Gutsy for GI Cancer Research after losing her best friend Marty Browne to stomach cancer. He was only 47.
Instead of Dry July she has set herself the goal of swimming 47kms this month to raise $4700 for GI Cancer Research, a kilometer for each year she, and Marty’s friends & family, were all gifted with his friendship, laughter and presence.
She is committed to raising as much as she can to support GI research to help lift survival rates and improve quality of life. As she posted on her fundraising page, which she has titled ‘The Ducks Guts’ –
“Marty you are very missed and you my friend are the ducks guts!!!”
Swimming through the Melbourne winter has added to her challenge however so far she is up to 17.1km of her 47km goal! To help support Katrina please CLICK HERE
