Jenni Nankervis took part in The Melbourne Age Run on Sunday 21st July to raise awareness of Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency and to raise funds for the Alpha-1 Association of Australia (AAA). Here is what she said on the day: “Well here we are “Alpha-1 Team” all ready to start our walk. This year we knew the set up, so we all walk through the start banner together arms up & waving. We also waited for each other and walked through the finish line together as well. They announced our cause over the mic. Before the walk a lady came up to me pointed at my t-shirt and said ‘my day’s got that and says I should be tested’ So at least we all raised some awareness today. I am sending some info to that lady and her father and she is going to be tested. WOO HOO THANK YOU TO MY AMAZING TEAM FOR HELPING ME RAISE AWARENESS ON A VERY COLD MORNING. THANK YOU ALSO TO THE WONDERFUL FRIENDS WHO KINDLY DONATED TO THIS VERY WORTHWHILE CAUSE.
Well done to Jenni and all those who took part.
