About the Event

THE CANBERRA TIMES MARATHON FESTIVAL

Our National Advisory Board member Rey Makkar, become involved with the Jodi Lee Foundation through The JLF Workplace Program, but it wasn’t until his sister Dahlia, at the ripe age of 27 discovered she had bowel cancer.

Dahlia (a JLF Youth Ambassador) noticed she was passing blood in her stool, until one day she noticed her stool had become pure blood she immediately went to seek medical help. The doctor ultimately saved her life, recommending she have a colonoscopy straightaway. It was then that Dahlia found out she had bowel cancer.
 
Dahlia's journey gave Rey an intimate understanding of how important prevention is, and the value of being conscious of our body and lifestyle being too undervalued in today’s society. 

"I am a keen (but certainly amateur) runner and want to be able to align my business, athletic interests and personal history to advance increased awareness on the important goals and mission of JLF - raise awareness for the prevention and early detection of bowel cancer". 

Donate to Rey today and help support his efforts for raising awareness for the prevention and early detection of bowel cancer.
