DEBORAH DE WILLIAMS – RUNNING PINK RIGHT ROUND AUSTRALIA

10 Apr

DEBORAH DE WILLIAMS AND MAGGIE THE BORDER COLLIE

ONE OF THE BEST THINGS ABOUT MY JOB IS THE REGULAR OPPORTUNITIES TO MEET INSPIRING PEOPLE – LIKE DEBORAH DE WILLIAMS.

I MET DEBORAH IN DECEMBER 2010 WHEN SHE CAME IN TO ABC FAR NORTH IN CAIRNS FOR A MUCH DESERVED SPELL IN THE AIR CONDITIONING. DEBORAH HAD JUST TURNED ONTO THE HOME STRETCH OF AN 18,000 KILOMETRE RUN AROUND AUSTRALIA, IN THE VERY GOOD COMPANY OF MAGGIE, HER BORDER COLLIE.

DEBORAH AND MAGGIE MADE IT BACK TO THEIR HOME-TOWN HOBART NEARLY SIX MONTHS AFTER OUR MEETING IN CAIRNS. BY THAT TIME SHE’D RAISED $200,000 FOR BREAST CANCER RESEARCH, A DISEASE DEBORAH WAS DIAGNOSED WITH IN 2006.

RUNNING PINK TELLS DEBORAH’S STORY – IT’S A NEW BOOK BY MEGAN NORRIS & PUBLISHED BY FIVE MILE PRESS. IT’S AN INSPIRING STORY – CLICK THE AUDIO PLAYER TO HEAR MY INTERVIEW WITH DEBORAH DE WILLIAMS.

DEBORAH’S NEXT GOAL IS TO RUN ACROSS ANTARCTICA BUT THE RULES DOWN THERE SAY MAGGIE THE BORDER COLLIE CAN’T GO WITH HER. READ MORE ABOUT DEBORAH’S WORK AT www.runningpink.com.au
