Maddie Loves the Ocean

Maddie Loves the Ocean

Maddie loves the ocean. 

This kid knows more about the ocean and all its creatures than any adult I know.  It has brought her huge amounts of joy to talk about it, swim in it, learn about it, draw it… you get the gist.

To memorialise this gorgeous angel and to share her joy with generations of other gorgeous angels, The Maddie James Foundation has been established to fund The Maddie James Seaside Learning Center. 

To name it in her honour, we need to raise $1,000,000.

This is a huge number, but Maddie’s Daddy and Mummy have decided to reach for the sea stars and try to raise as much money as possible to make sure Maddie’s name lives on in perpetuity at The Center.

I want to help them.  And I’m asking you to help them too.

I’ll be doing a whole lot of running this season, kicking off with Run for the Kids in Melbourne on 17 April.  I’m hoping that you all will get behind sponsoring me by donating to The Maddie James Foundation. 

You can, read more at www.maddiejamesfoundation.org – follow them on Facebook and Twitter and spread the word to whoever you can. 

Run for the Kids:   17 April – 14.38km
Mothers’ Day Classic: 8 May – 4km
Run Melbourne:   17 July – half marathon
Sandy Point Half: 21 August – half marathon
Sydney Running Festival:   18 September –half marathon
Melbourne Marathon:   9 October – marathon

So, I’m going to do all this running and tell you how it goes here and you – I hope – will sponsor me by donating to The Maddie James Foundation.
