Director of ShelterBox Australia and ShelterBox Response Team member, Peter Pearce is in training to run the London Marathon in aid of his beloved charity. Peter, a retired financial advisor and Rotarian from Terrigal on the NSW Central Coast will complete the 26 mile course with a specially adapted ShelterBox on his back.
As part of his training, Peter is walking the coastal path around his native Cornwall. Peter said, “I’m passionate about ShelterBox and their disaster relief work, I’ve deployed with them 10 times and seen firsthand the positive impact they have on people who’ve lost everything. By running the London Marathon with a ShelterBox on my back I hope to gain us valuable exposure and raise a decent amount of money to enable us to carry on our valuable work”
We wish Peter good luck in his venture. Those wishing to sponsor Peter and support ShelterBox can vista the link below to make a donation. Please forward this post to your friends and colleagues and fellow Rotarians to help make Peter’s efforts a worthwhile endeavour.
