Humans in Geelong team member Jesse Malthouse, 22, is running the New York Marathon to raise money for Team for Kids. Jesse tells us, “If you have seen any of my recent posts I’ve got a massive event coming up that is out of this country… USA to be exact! Haha
“I am running the NEW YORK MARATHON!!! 🤙🏼 – Crazy hey! 😆 I’ve only every run a half marathon before and that was last New Year’s Eve at the You Yangs. I’ve got a background in fitness being a footballer but it will be nothing compared to running 42.2km in hopefully around 4 hours, in another country!
“But that’s not the craziest part! I will be Running to get Kids off the streets & into running programs to live happy healthier lives. 🤗
“As some of you probably already know, others sometimes don’t grow up as lucky as what I and some of you maybe did. 😔
“Which is sad because every kid deserves to have a childhood full of fun, adventure and to be around other kids and adults who put a big smile on their faces! 😁
“Which is why I am helping these legends & fundraising for them. To do something incredible (with a touch of craziness) & to give back at the same time.
“How to Help?
Everyone has their own story & circumstances that they give to which is why Team for Kids & I are making it real easy. 😊
For me this is a HUGE thing as I’ve always wanted to push myself & why not when I get the opportunity to do it & to support TFK too. If you wanted to help click on the link below and help me & change some kids lives, step by step 🏃♂️🏃♂️
“My goal is to raise $3,000 for Team for Kids in the next 3 days! Let’s do it!!”
Jesse Malthouse will be speaking at the Humans in Geelong Expo Sun 6 Oct at 12 midday in Room D2.212. Come along and hear from this motivated, inspirational, young man.
