Nedd Brockmann's Record Run Across Australia Is Done!
Nedd Brockmann has finally completed his mega run across Australia.
The electrician – who had CNH Industrial brand CASE Construction as a leading sponsor – crossed the line at Bondi promenade, Sydney, in front of a thousand-strong crowd.
He tackled the task in the name of Mobilise – a homeless charity – raising a staggering A$2.5m.
Nedd’s grueling journey began at Cottesloe Beach in Perth, on the country’s Eastern Coast. It totaled 3953km. And took him 46 days to complete. That’s almost 100km a day.
Support for Nedd has grown and grown across the month and a half. As he has kept the world updated with regular posts on his Instagram, millions have gotten behind his cause.
Despite a number of injury setbacks, his positivity has been unwavering and infectious.
Nedd’s mum, Kylie, was a part of a close support team following him. Just before her son finished, she spoke to Sydney’s 2GB radio about his determination.
“He will be in hospital before he stops,” she said.
“There have been some extremely grueling and heartbreaking times, but Ned’s energy is what we feed off.”
On Instagram, Nedd reflected on his hopes to inspire change and empower people to grab new opportunities:
“Even if it gets someone up off the couch, or starts that new job, I just want people to have a crack at whatever it is that they’ve always wanted to do, because you never know when you might not be able to do it. I don’t want to be preaching down anyone’s neck, but our days are numbered so go out and have a red hot crack at it.’
CASE backed Nedd from the start. The brand is proud to have supported his incredible accomplishment all the way.
