Pararoos powerhouse Benny Roche has covered an incredible distance in his efforts to raise over $6,000 for the second annual Undefeated Challenge.
The Pararoos legend, who has represented Australia 54 times over 17 years, ran 117 kilometres in the space of four days.
He did it by covering 6.5 kms every four hours, four days in a row.
Roche’s unbelievable effort has seen him lead the fundraising charge in this year’s Undefeated Challenge so far, which is taking place between October 4 and 10, in celebration of World Cerebral Palsy Day.
There is still time for any Australian to take up the challenge and join the Pararoos in their seven-day fitness blitz, supporting the team’s dreams of taking on the world at the 2022 World Cup in Spain.
It’s a challenge those of all ages, all abilities, and all fitness levels can get around, with participants free to walk, swim, cycle or roll their way to their goal.
So far more than 35 people have signed up to Move for the Pararoos, raising over $16,000 – and counting!
Click here to get involved, donate and leave a message of support for one of our Fundraising Champions, including many of the Pararoos themselves.
Every donation over $2 is tax-deductible and will go directly to supporting the Pararoos’ dreams.
Together, we can take on the world.
