JOHNNY BONES’ CUPIDS EXPERIENCE!
Why did you choose to participate in Cupid’s?
A few years ago I was a keen marathon runner, and I needed some events to help me kick start my season at the start of the year. I had heard about Cupid’s Fun Run before and I thought, why the hell not! I don’t personally have anyone in my family who suffers from NF, but I think it’s quite sad that young people suffer from it! There’s a hashtag associated with the event, #dare2bare and whilst I think it’s quite brave to run down the street in your undies, there’s no disputing how brave some young people are battling NF.
How many times have you done Cupid’s and will you do it again?
I have done 3 (2016 – 2018). I will definitely do it again!
What did you like most about the event?
There’s a really good after party where you can meet and mingle with people after a fun run! I really enjoyed last year’s after party at the Opera Bar. There, I met a lady who suffered from NF who had just flown in from Argentina the week before the event. She was blown away that as soon as she got to Sydney, there was an event raising money for a condition she suffered from, and that a lot of people were participating in the event as well!
