New York Marathon done and dusted for another year!

Earlier this week, our team of 23 runners travelled across the Pacific to New York City to run in the TCS New York Marathon on November 6! After months of dark morning runs, countless blisters and even a torn ligament, the big day finally arrived!

Accompanied by our chairman Chris McDermott and an amazing support crew, our runners all set off on the Sunday morning (early Monday morning local time) and finished with times ranging from 3 hours 10 minutes (retiring from the AFL over 12 months ago clearly hasn’t slowed Kane Cornes down!) to over 7 hours!

From all at Little Heroes Foundation, thank you so much to each of our amazing runners for representing us in the USA, and for helping raise some much needed funds for seriously ill children living in SA.

Your incredible work throughout 2016 has helped raise over $180,000 for our Little Heroes! However it’s not too late to donate! Fundraising continues for our runners as we chase the ultimate dream of $200,000!

This money will continue to fund our Little Heroes Care Program, which provides ongoing care and support for seriously ill children and their families.

Many thanks again to our runners and everyone who donated! We are looking forward to returning again in 2016!

If you are interested in participating in next year’s New York Marathon, we want to hear from you!

Alternatively, if you like a different kind of challenge, Little Heroes Foundation will also be taking a team over to Papua New Guinea to trek the infamous Kokoda Track!
