Cardinia Leisure’s own, Jake Ward, is on an inspiring journey in the fight against Breast Cancer.

Jake hopes to raise over $50,000 for Breast Cancer research throughout November by challenging himself to complete an incredible 1500km run over 30 days from the Gold Coast to Melbourne.


Already, Jake has covered over 550km during the first 12 days of November, having now made his way across the QLD-NSW border.

Jake, who works as part of the gym staff team at Cardinia Life, says his involvement begun after breast cancer took the lives of two close family members.

This is the third time Jake has campaigned to raise funds for the National Breast Cancer foundation. Previously he ran over 110km across the city of Casey; raising $8000, and more recently running 1000km from Sydney to Melbourne; raising just over $40,000 for his efforts.

You can follow Jake’s journey via his Facebook page.

If you would like to donate, you can do so via his Everyday Hero fundraising page.

We will provide an update on Jake’s progress throughout the month of November.
