Today, myself and 3 other women hit the streets of the Sutherland Shire as Team Amnesty. Along with about 7500 other Sutherland 2 Surf competitors we were making our way to the far North beach of Cronulla from Sutherland, 11 plus kilometres away. Every competitor had their own reason to run. Whether it was for personal achievement or to raise awareness and money for a charity or cause they wholeheartedly believe in.
Team Amnesty was running for Human Rights. We were running for ‘the people’. Those who are kept locked away by governments for exercising a basic human right. Whether it’s Pussy Riot for freedom of expression, murdered Journalists for investigating the facts or the 1000s of refugee’s that seek safety in Australia or other countries yet are denied and unlawfully labelled as criminals…we ran for these people, we ran to tell these people that we will not forget about them nor will we let government actions against them go unseen or unheard.
