Beach To Brother

Beach to Brother

Why are we doing it?

Our aim is to promote the importance of skin safety awareness when training outdoors and hopefully raise some funds to support cancer research.

Australia continues to have the highest rate of skin cancer in the world. We all need to be vigilant about our skin and 'slip, slop, slap, seek and slide' whenever we are outside. Especially our youth!!

The last 18 months have been difficult for our community and we are passionate about supporting a local event and at the same time supporting a charity that is close to both of our hearts.


What are we doing?

We chose the Beach2Brother challenge. A gruelling 42km marathon along the coast of our home town Port Macquarie which ends at the summit of North Brother Mountain on the 19th September 2021.

So off we go, sunscreen and all, to embark on the next few months of training to get from the beach to the top of the mountain.
