   Andrew's Asthma Attack

Andrew Tait has made a decision to make a real difference and raise funds for asthma by completing 8 runs totalling over 100kms in 2014!

Andrew completed his fifth run, the Melbourne Marathon on Sunday 12th October. Not only was it Andrew’s first marathon, he also did it in a time of 4:26:32 beating his target of 4 hours 30 mins. Andrew’s next run is The Sunday Age City2Sea presented by Westpac on Sunday 16th November. So far Andrew has raised over $9,000!
