At 7 years old, Donna Campisi survived a sudden stroke (and other serious complications) which left her grasping for life.  Doctors said she would never walk or talk again, yet today she sets amazing challenges to helps others to overcome their situations and to achieve.  In 2012, Donna set herself the challenge to go from 30 wobbly steps to running an entire marathon!  No small feat.  Not only did she achieve her goal, but she also inspired hundreds of people along the way and her marathon success raised $36,000 for the Royal Children’s Hospital Foundation.  Most of all, she proved that there’s no such thing as can’t! 

Today, Donna is an inspirational speaker, workshop facilitator, and coach.  She's a published author, with her most recent book titled ‘The Unlikely Marathoner – How to conquer your big goal and run with it’, gained keen interest before printing even started.  She uses her blog on www.RunDonnaRun.com.au to inspire many people around the world, and Donna believes that any challenge is achievable when broken into ‘baby steps’ and having the right mindset. She explains with confidence: ‘Don’t just take opportunities when they come… Create opportunities!’
