City-Bay Runner Inspires
The Westpac City to Bay fun run is no easy feat, with thousands of South Australians taking part each year to run the 12 kilometre course.
St Peter’s College student Jack Kelsh (Year 11), originally from Flow region Wirrulla, is preparing to run in this year's event to raise awareness and funds for the Leukaemia Foundation.
Starting his campaign to run with a fundraising goal of $700, in just over a week Jack has managed to raise a current total of $5,053.76 and counting.
This puts Jack in second spot for overall fundraisers for the event, a very deserving everyday hero.
The Leukaemia Foundation is one close to Jack's heart, as his father Glen sadly passed away in 2016, after a 10 year long battle with a blood related cancer. He was supported by the Leukaemia Foundation throughout this time.
Jack caught up with Sarah last week on the Regional Roundup to talk about his experiences and why he's raising funds for the Leukaemia Foundation, telling Flow FM: "I want to help others in need since I've now seen how it affects people from the start to the end, in which no one should have to go through," he said.
