Running for Lou

We're running for Lou

This October, we’re going to complete a marathon (42.2 kilometres) to help raise funds for lifesaving heart disease research and in memory of our amazing and inspirational mum, Louise McCorkell.

Mum dedicated so much of her life helping those who had suffered a cardiac event or surgery return to an active lifestyle. Mum’s work and positive energy allowed patients to feel optimistic about their future in what is a truly traumatic time for any family.

Our family has also been impacted by heart disease in multiple ways across many generations. This run is in memory of both our Mum and all those in our family who we've lost too soon.

We’ve signed up for MyMarathon because we want to show our support for the thousands of Australians living with heart disease. The donations we receive will help fund lifesaving heart disease research that makes a real difference to people’s lives.

We’re competing as a team because there’s strength in numbers – the more team members we have, the bigger impact we can make. But we can’t do it alone. You can support us by joining our team and completing a marathon with us, or by making a donation, right here and now.

Together, we can win the race against heart disease.

Team Updates

Thank you!

A quick note to thank everyone so much for signing up to the challenge and/or donating. It's been great to receive so many emails notifying us of new team members as well as your messages on the page. Your support truly helps so much.


With October 1 approaching, restrictions slightly easing and the weather looking up (for now), we hope you’re all feeling motivated. This was always Mum’s favourite time of year where the additional sunlight hours and t-shirt and shorts weather made it that bit easier to get out of the house for a run, swim or ride. 


Our personal goals over the month include: 

Genevieve to run 2 x half marathons

Geraldine to run 5km x 3 times a week (65km in total)

Richard to walk 150km over the month (5km a day)

Madeleine to run 100km over the month 


Whether its 10km or 100km, we would love for you to share your progress or pictures along the way, so definitely let us know how you’re going. It’s nice to feel connected and keep in touch.


Lots of love to you all, the McCorkell family xx
