A good reason to run

Westmead Hospital emergency department administration clerk Nihaya Shockair prepares for the City2Surf.

Westmead Hospital emergency department clerk Nihaya Shockair is challenging herself and her two sons to finish the gruelling City2Surf to raise awareness and funds for Beyond Blue.

“Everyone tells me I must be crazy for signing up for the long and steep 14km trek,” Mrs Shockair said.

“I’m doing this for a good cause and also in memory of my late husband.

“I planned to run this course with my husband but now I’m running this alone … the boys will be walking/running with family members and friends.

“I hope people get behind us and to support awareness on mental health issues.”

Good luck Nihaya we hope you raise lots of funds and awareness for Beyond Blue!
