Jacqueline and I will be running in the City 2 Surf on August 9, and are trying to raise money for Bear Cottage, a children’s hospice here in Sydney. Any donations are much appreciated. If you would like to donate, you can do it online by clicking on these links:

For those of you that don’t know, the City 2 Surf is an annual 14 km/8.7 mile charity fun run that goes from the City (Bet you didn’t guess that!) all the way to Bondi Beach!
And here is some information about Bear Cottage, our nominated charity:
An initiative of The Children’s Hospital at Westmead, Bear Cottage has made a significant difference to the lives of many families since opening it’s doors in March 2001. Be it respite care for a much needed break for families, end of life care or bereavement support after a child has died. Emphasis in hospice care provision is placed on family focused care and the provision of respite. Bear Cottage provides a place of rest where daily tasks such as administering medication, cooking and cleaning are done by staff and volunteers so that families may spend quality time together. Families do not pay for any Bear Cottage services and without government funding, all costs of operating are raised entirely through community donations.
Thanks very much!
Ben and Jacqueline
