The Hunger Project Australia Youth Board

The Blackmores Sydney Marathon

Hi everyone, in September I will be running the Sydney Marathon to raise funds for The Hunger Project Australia. The Hunger Project has the goal of ending world hunger by 2030 through the empowerment of women in impoverished communities. September is not long way away so the training/fundraising stage begins now! Any donation to this cause, no matter how big or small, will go a long way towards making someone else's life easier. It's super easy to donate, just follow the prompts!

Thank you to my Sponsors


John And Rachel Akehurst

Best wishes for the run, Matt. This is a great cause and a great thing to be doing.
