A personal message from Leigh:
My target: $ 2,500
So far I've raised: $ 3,280

Please sponsor me to help end animal abuse. My biggest challenge EVER! Running The Track 2019. 522kms self supported running across the Australian desert over 9 stages. So I'm choosing to put myself through extreme suffering & heat stress running multi distances everyday from Alice Springs to Uluru. I'm running for Animals Australia because I support their... campaign & the animals on Live Export ships don't get to choose. & I'm running to give them a voice & to acheive something scary nearly impossible but I'm positive I will finish for them. As always I'll be plant powered all the way, I have to carry all of my food, first aid, sleeping bag & mat, hydration, everything I need to survive. Help me to survive in the desert please by supporting me & making a donation. Thanks for your kindness xox See More »
