2023 Marathon Wrap-Up


Another year, another successful marathon event!  The Melbourne Marathon day is always special for us because we see first-hand just how much support there is for the Foundation and the work that we do.

We’re so grateful to the 60+ runners turning up for Team JMB and raising much needed funds in the process, with their friends and supporters sponsoring their runs and walks to the tune of $6500.  Our very warm thanks also goes to our sponsor, Old Carey Grammarians Association for so generously underwriting the costs of our Team JMB shirts.

The weather held for the most part, and James Macready-Bryan along with some of the other residents from his home attended, and was able to meet some of the runners who visited us after their runs.

We’re also incredibly grateful to the nearly 300-strong team of volunteers the Foundation provided this year as course marshals and manning drinks stations.  This resulted in a donation from IMG, the marathon organisers of $31,000, so if you were one of our amazing volunteers up before the crack of dawn on a chilly, potentially drizzly spring day in Melbourne, THANK YOU!  We hope we can look forward to having you on board again in 2024.
