National Stroke Association 2010 Logo - 100 transparent

Team "Go Big or Go Home" (GBOGH) came from humble beginnings but has huge dreams. It originated as a result of a late night East London summer conversation in June 2013 when Carole, Patrick and JC over a few drinks committed to running the NYC Marathon in 20 weeks time. We also realized that night that we didn't just want to run but run for a cause that we were passionate about; a cause that linked all of us together.

As we mulled over ideas it slowly emerged that we all had a close, personal connection to strokes; JC & Carole's Grandmother and Patrick's Mother have all been victims to this life event. A stroke is something that comes from nowhere and changes you and your families life instantly and forever. However, given more resources and improved funding, it is something that can both be avoided and, when not possible, offer huge amounts of hope through training and rehabilitation.

That is why, as a team, we have chosen to run for the National Stroke Association.

The National Stroke Association helps to recognise the warning symptoms in order to raise awareness and avoid the worst - which may result in an inability to move, to understand or formulate speech, and an inability to see on one side. It also works on helping those affected by stroke through the long and potentially expensive rehabilitation process without which many of the patients and their families would lose hope.

Sometimes an image is worth 1000 words. So imagine how many words this video of Patrick's mum rehabilitation is worth: http://vimeo.com/72904694


Now, a little more about the runners...

JC is the crazy one, the kind of guy that pushes his limits (skydiving, base-jumping, fasting, cold water training). He pushes us to run 20km/hour when WE ALL KNOW it will never actually happen!

Patrick is the animal one, who likes to train every day and mixes it up with his 6:00 am Military Fitness. Call him the machine and he will answer. In short, he is the one who is bringing us to the marathon in HIS country, Americaaaaaaa!!

Carole, motivated and focused, is the glue who holds the team together. She keeps pace with those crazy men, calms the competition and brings freshness and love to the team. What would we do without her? please note that was not written by Carole!

Running for a cause is primordial and supporting a cause dear to our heart by raising money despite the pain and challenges of running 42.2 km is a homage to the all those who have been affected by strokes.

We have each pledged to scrape, claw, beg and steal $3,000 ($9,000 in total) and hope you can do all you can to help support us.

So here we go, on a race to the charity goal and on a race to the Marathon; wish us luck and please donate.

The main reason for this is that many dealerships are anticipating All New models landing throughout the year. This includes vehicles like the Mazda 2, Ford Fiesta, and Citreon C1. He is also involved in some of the biggest sponsorship deals in F1.
