Imagine there’s a cause that’s captured your heart. Imagine, then, that you choose to raise money for them. You could do a sausage sizzle, sell some chocolates or just ask around your friends. That is not what our guest in this episode did. When the JuicedTV project at Lady Cilento Children’s Hospital caught his attention, he decided to raise funds by running. Phorographer, Kieron Douglass, a man inspired in his youth by Kelly Slater and Steve Irwin, shares about his 200km, non-stop run to support Juiced TV and his face-to-face encounters with his heroes.
We also take a bit of a look at the inspirational song, “We Are Done” by The Madden Brothers.

In the Sylvester Stallone voice:
“Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place, and I don’t care how tough you are, it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep movingforward; how much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now, if you know what you’re worth, then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody. Cowards do that and that ain’t you.” Rocky Balboaell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows.
