Lovely book to read, very inspiring. Running Pink details, in great details I should add, how Deborah De Williams walked around Australia for the Kids Helpline and how she ran around for Running Pink her organisation to support Breast Cancer. The walks and runs were all plagued with tricky situations, all of which she managed to overcome with her dedicated mum, husband and father. Cyclones and broken bones, floods and deaths did not stop Deborah and her team and thanks to her perseverance and an ...more

The story is about Deborah De Williams’ inspiring run around Australia (18,000 km) with her dog Maggie.She has seen the sights of this country at a slightly different pace than most, and all in the name of raising awareness and funds for breast cancer with a world record to boot.

De Williams is a breast cancer survivor herself and in 2011, was announced the Tasmanian Australia of the Year. In this book we travel with her pink crew around and through the heart of Australia – the cities, outback a

Honestly I only picked this book up because it had someone running with a border collie on the front.
I am so glad that I picked this book up. I LOVE it. Enjoyed every minute of it.
I can't say if I'm more inspired by Deb and not only her desire to run around Australia, but the fact that she didn't give up on it, having to stop and restart from the very beginning, or if I'm more in love with her dog Maggie, who is so adorable, so much so that I would read out bits of the book about her to mum, be

Inspirational totally... what a strong and amazing women. How I would love to just travel around Australia but perhaps not by foot, either walking or running. Raising awareness and fundraising for breast cancer, Deborah's story made me laugh, feel the pain and cry the tears as I enjoyed her journey.

The story of a brave and enterprising woman with huge determination. To beat records, to make money for charity and to fulfill her own dreams. The prose is a bit over the top at the times, a bit purple, a bit too over emotional but it tells a brave story.
