Tory Toogood has set her sights on completing seven marathons across seven continents to raise awareness about bowel cancer and the importance of early detection.

She’s been a strong supporter of The Jodi Lee Bowel Cancer Foundation since 2011 when she ran in our New York Marathon team, raising over $10,000. We’re so grateful for her efforts.

Since New York, she has run five more marathons across six continents – The Great Wall, Adelaide, Kilimanjaro, Amsterdam and finally Antarctica, where she finished as the first woman over the line and 5th overall – an amazing achievement!

Tory was so close to realising her dream of completing her seventh marathon earlier this year at Caracas, South America but unfortunately the event was cancelled just five days beforehand. She now hopes to complete her final marathon next year. We’ll keep you posted!

Until then, you can support Tory by donating on her fundraising page and by following her journey on Facebook.
