“I had to be a fighter right there from the get-go.”
Today we dive into the harrowing life story of the Australian born, ultra-running philanthropist, Robbie Wickham. Host Craig takes us through his humble beginnings growing up in the steel city of Whyella, Australia where he first captured his love of fitness. Then we’ll hear about the tragic events that took those closest to him but through his grief, he somehow held onto what had kept him going for so many years and through so many miles. Robbie talks about what it takes to train for an Ultrarun and how using those same principles can help your community. Get ready, another episode of “Who Are You” is running right at ya.
Robbie is a veteran of True Grit, a military inspired obstacle course in Australia truegrit.com.au and actively raising money for the Kids Cancer Project http://www.thekidscancerproject.org.au
