My target 50 kms

I'm making the impossible, possible, by taking part in the Impossible Walk & Jog for my Dad, Murray, to raise much needed funds for dementia research.

As many would know Dad was diagnosed with Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD) at the age of 39. 
This illness robbed my Dad, of fatherhood much more. 
Many of those around us did not understand, or chose to not understand this horrible, isolating and monster of a disease that was impacting our young family. 
This disease didn't define who Dad was or what he meant to me. Missing you forever and always.

I’m challenging myself by committing to 50km over 2 weeks to raise much needed awareness and funds to support people impacted by dementia.

But I need your help! Please make a donation to support my efforts and help me to make the impossible, possible.

My fundraising will help support the work of Dementia Australia Research Foundation, funding innovative Australian research into dementia causes, diagnosis, treatment and one day a cure.

Thank you for your support.

Your Dad was a fun loving, compassionate guy. He was a dear friend to us. He was well liked and respected in the community, someone who could be trusted and a wonderful example of a loving husband and father. His family were very precious to him. A lovely tribute to Murray. Xx

I am so proud of you Asha..as your Dad would be. I will feel forever saddened that you never knew Dad the way I did. His love for you and Luke was endless and he so would have been the most amazing Dad and mentor for you both. Dementia robbed our family of so much and it is still so misunderstood and isolating for those experiencing it now. Well done on supporting reseach into this debilitating illness.

Well done Asha!! What a great goal to have reached and donation to make to a cause so close to your heart! I can’t imagine the pain in your loss and the times you’ve missed with your Dad but I do know he loves you and wherever he is now he is incredibly proud of you! You ooze positivity and your glass is always half full, an incredible outlook on life… which you’ve shown yet again by setting this goal and surpassing it on both levels while spreading information and your own “story” with such a terrible illness!
